Essential Rock # 8 Leadership

Leadership is influencing others. It’s about being intentional in growing the leadership capacities of others by spending time teaching leadership, modeling leadership, and coaching for leadership. 


There are three entry points into being intentional in growing leaders: 

  1.  Spending Time: Be sure to schedule time to build relationships with emerging leaders to teach and discuss leadership skills.
  2. Modeling: As a leader you are always in the spotlight of what is expected and tolerated as a leader…so practice what you preach about leadership and model it always. 
  3. Coaching: Walk others through scenarios and situations that they’ll experience in real life leadership. The phases for coaching are: 
    1. trust in the relationship, 
    2. observations of you leading 
    3. apprenticeship where they lead and you provide specific feedback, 
    4. mentorship, where you are their “go to” for wisdom, guidance, and support.
