The Job of the Leader:

3.    Serve – Serve your people
4.    Collaborate – bring the organization together to do work – use their best talents to solve problems.

How do you develop leaders?
1.     Understand the purpose of your leadership
2.     Gain self-awareness (get out and do it – get feedback)
3.     Have values
4.     Follow your motivational strengths
5.     Build support system around you
6.     Lead on integrated life – be the same person in all environments

Leaders who fail don’t fail to lead others – they fail to lead themselves – they don’t know themselves – they are not well grounded
