If you don’t know how to smile, laugh, love, forgive, help, serve, teach, you’re not a leader, you’re just a boss. Leadership is a bidirectional process, you have to learn to receive, to grow with what you give.
This time, I don’t want to take you to a very complex exercise. On the contrary, it will be something very simple. I want you to answer two brief questionnaires and place the results on a graph.
I will answer an example question, and you can reply with the rest
On a scale of 1 to 5, where one means nothing important and 5 is very important, how important it is for you that a leader has:
Focus on results 1-2-3-4-5
Suppose you think that focusing on results is important for a leader, but not at an extreme level, you can grant him a four (4)
Focus on results 1-2-3-4-5-
Then you will look for “focus on results” in the graph, at the end of the chapter, and put a point on the four
We will look for the 4 in the criteria we are evaluating and mark it.
When you finish answering all the questions, you will match the dots and get an image like this.
When you do this, you will answer another simple questionnaire; you will repeat the process and make the second line, with another color, this is how it will look
Since you know what to do you can answer the questions:
The idea is that in the end, you compare both assessments: compare the lines and leadership attributes
Once you mark the points on the graph at the end of the chapter and you match them to have the first line (figure), return to complete the following questions
