Every family, group of people, or community who jumps from nothing to something meaningful has a leader. Everybody else is a follower. The leader always manages to inspire through powerful talks in small and large groups.
A little-known fact is that everyone can be a leader, despite the belief to the contrary. There are trainings and courses in leadership, but there is no single answer to “What is leadership?”
Leadership is not a talent you either have or don’t have. There is no prescribed personality type, background or looks that automatically make one into a leader. It’s all about skills.
What are those skills?
In NLP, learning how to become a leader is doubled up by the process and the ability to inspire a team, to be a positive influencer in the life of that team or group of people is called “Working with Group Dynamics” and it is part of the NLP Trainer’s Training.
Learning these skills makes the difference between talking a good game but never doing anything other than talk and those action-takers who achieve the desired results. They do this by knowing how to hold themselves accountable for their decisions and actions. Someone has to take the first step, and these leaders are the ones taking it.
Although they may not realize it, leaders are constantly being observed by followers. Team members watch to see how the leader responds to messages or events and model their own responses from what they see the leader do.
Good leaders are those who are aware that they are being observed by the team and set an example for them to follow. They positively influence not by trying to convince others, but by their own ability to help others become their best selves, building their skills and achieving their personal as well as the team’s goals along the way.
Leadership consists of a set of skills that anyone can master, and both NLP and Time Line Therapy® are extremely useful in this respect.
