Often times, people wonder what leadership qualities are preferable.

Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady wrote a book called “Launching a Leadership Revolution” . This book helps us determine what a leader is and more importantly, how to grow and train more leaders!(And MINI Me’s if you’re a business owner) Leadership

Ultimately, leadership is influence. To achieve different levels of leadership, we must understand them first.

There are 5 Levels of Leadership.

These levels are

  1. Learning- Leaders must always be learning and growing
  2. Performing. Leaders must not lack in the performance category. They must get results!
  3. Leading.. Leaders must be able to lead others. These followers must also trust the leader
  4. Developing other leaders
  5. Leaders must be able to develop leaders who develop other leaders

Leaders must also posses 3 Foundational Leadership Qualities( The 3cs)

  1. Character
  2. Commitment
  3. Coachablitiy

Without the 3 Cs, you will not be a leader at any level. Orrin Woodward does a phenomenal job of covering the core leader qualities in this book and this is a MUST READ for any want to be leader(or current leader). He’s also an amazing speaker and I recommend seeing him in person. I also recommend another book from Orrin  titled “Resolved, 13 Resolution for LifeAnother great book If you found value here, please like, share, comment and TWEET!!!

  1. Great post Phil! Must be coach-able! A lot of people trying to be leaders miss this one! Got to lead by example!

  2. I am reading John Maxwell’s book right now “How Successfully People Lead” and many of things you talk about here are what was covered. Thanks for sharing.

    1. John Maxwell is also one of my favorite authors. He and Orrin are definitely the top 2 leadership authors out there.

  3. One of my favorite books on leadership is “The Leadership Challenge” by James Kouzes and Barry Posner…Loved these 5 levels of leadership.
