Good leaders always make things happen. They get results. They can make a significant impact on an organization. Not only are they productive individually, but they also are able to help the team produce.

No one can fake Level 3. Some people never move up from Level 2 Permission to Level 3 Production. However, if you desire to go to higher levels of leadership, you simply have to produce.

There is no other way around it. Level 4: People Development On Level 3, the emphasis is on personal and corporate productivity. The ability to create a high-productivity team, department, or organization indicates a higher level of leadership ability than most others display. But to reach the upper levels of leadership that create elite organizations, leaders must transition from producers to developers. Good leaders on Level 4 invest their time, energy, money, and thinking into growing others as leaders.

How does this emphasis on people and people decisions translate into action? Leaders on the People Development level of leadership shift their focus from the production achieved by others to the development of their potential. And they put only 20 percent of their focus on their personal productivity while putting 80 percent of it on developing and leading others.

Not only is leadership at this level a culmination of leading well on the other four levels, but it also requires both a high degree of skill and some amount of natural leadership ability.

The individuals who reach Level 5 lead so well for so long that they create a legacy of leadership in the organization they serve. Pinnacle leaders stand out from everyone else. They are a cut above, and they seem to bring success with them wherever they go. Leadership at this high level lifts the entire organization and creates an environment that benefits everyone in it, contributing to their success.

Level 5 leaders often possess an influence that transcends the organization and the industry the leader works in. Most leaders who reach the Pinnacle do so later in their careers. This level is therefore a fine starting point to experience and learn the ropes of leadership.

Permission This leadership level is about the human relationships that the leader has built up around him. Because he has a good relationship with them, the leader realises that it becomes easier for employees to make extra effort. Part of their motivation comes from themselves, but it is also a result of their leader believing in them.

Vice versa, the employees believe in their leader and the goals he strives for. Good relationships strengthen the cooperation and increase loyalty and mutual trust.

A leader at this level would do well to show genuine interest in his colleagues and employees and get to know them better personally.

Colleagues and employees have a home life, health issues, personal traits and hobbies that definitely deserve attention. It is also wise to compliment colleagues and employees and bring out the best in them. The building of a good relationship, one based on mutual respect, leads to a pleasant working atmosphere and team spirit. However, it does not necessarily always leads to positive results. That requires growing towards leadership level 3.

What has the leader meant to the company. The fact that this level comes after building good interpersonal relationships, has to do with the fact that colleagues and employees are vital to achieving positive results.

The 5 Levels of Leadership by John Maxwell

Only when a team can take steps together, believe in one another and trust each other, will it be possible to achieve proper production. When employees are only told to work hard without any show if interest or empathy towards them from the leader, there is the risk that they will burn out.

The leaders at this level use their good relationships to to make their vision reality. As such, it is important that a leader makes clear to everyone in the organisation what his vision is, so everyone can follow the same course.

This leader is much loved within his team.

But that is also where a danger lies. If this leader gets another position within the organisation, it is likely that the team will disintegrate. After all, they are dependent on the guidance they used to receive from their leader. To avoid leaving the team as a ship adrift in a situation like that, it is possible for the leader to grow to the fourth level of leadership. People development At this management level, it is about the development and stimulating of employees.

It is essential for a growing organisation to have leaders at this fourth level. This leader thinks it is important to train his employees. That is why he delegates work to them. By delegating, he gives them confidence and empowers them to develop themselves.

Background Levels of Leadership

This confidence has to be genuine and communicated clearly to the employee. In contrast to level 3 leadership, it means letting go. The focus on results is of secondary importance. The main challenge for leaders at this level is to put the growth of others first, above their own interests.

The more new leaders are trained, the more this leads to productive teams. Furthermore, these newly trained employees will appreciate what the leader has done for them personally. Pinnacle The leader at this level has reached the top of what is possible. His status is based on a foundation of respect. His employees and colleagues appreciate the leader in see an example in him. From level 4, they will also leave behind new leaders in the company, which will ensure a constant flow of new generations of leaders.

The use of this type of leaders also creates level 5 organisations, who are globally successful and whose founders are still famous. Examples of this are the brewer Heineken and the technology company Philips that became successful through research and innovation. The founders themselves were typical level 5 leaders, who left behind a positive reputation through their dedication.

Cumulative Growth from one level to the next happens slowly but steadily. It is however important to start at the first level; from here leaders can develop and improve, which enables them to take the step to the next level.

All levels are built on top of each other and therefore cumulative. A leader will still use the skills he had at level 2 after he reaches level 3.Accept your role as Change Agent For Discussion: Connect with yourself—self- 7.
