Great Leaders: How to Be the Kind of Leader People Want to Follow

If you want to be the kind of leader that people naturally want to follow, you must be able to recognize and own the stories you have made up about yourself and let them go. Once you do that you will be far more able to see the stories you have about others and you can let those go, too.

Our stories drive our behavior and our actions. 

Our stories separate us from each other. 

Our stories divide us.

Our stories are a result of judgments and opinions we formed about ourselves at a very young age. Yet, we continue to carry them with us as if they are the truth. If you want to be the kind of leader that people naturally want to follow, then get out of your own way by owning the judgments and opinions you have about yourself, thus freeing you up to do the same with others.

Need help recognizing your stories? Read Embrace the Ridiculousness: A Pocket Guide to a Being a Better You. This book is a short but powerful read, so you can look at the hard stuff, spot your patterns and be the kind of leader you want to be.
