You’re Not the Boss of Me – Bottom Up Leadership

Leadership  – You’re Not the Boss of Me!

America needs leadership in all phases of our country from our politicians to our corporations. The problem is  many individuals that are in leadership positions are not equipped with the experience or the people skills to lead. None the less they are put into these roles because they went to the right college or university or they knew the right person. You or I cannot change this paradigm, it is simply the way things and will most likely always be.

So what is the answer to this leadership dilemma? I believe that the answer lies in leadership from the bottom up. Each one of us has the ability to facilitate change in our “world” by taking on a leadership role regardless of our title at the moment. Now, you don’t  have to be the “boss” of anyone. Leadership is not about telling others what to do but rather it is a function of setting and displaying a culture and a standard for the organization you belong to.

 

What can you do to provide leadership from the bottom up?

  1. Manage your attitude! Attitude can make or break an organization. If you want your “world” to be successful than why would you not want to spread a positive attitude?
  2. Take initiative and don’t wait to be told what to do. Most of the time we understand what we can do to make a positive impact within our company or community. TAKE ACTION!
  3. Reach out to others. There is always someone that can use a helping hand, be it within the company we work with or the community we live in. Don’t worry about “you’re not the boss of me” if someone asks you to do something pitch in and make a difference that’s what leadership is about.
  4. Be proactive to help bring change to your organization that is beneficial.

“You’re not the boss of me.” I’m the boss of me and with that comes the responsibility of giving up vanity for the sake of the organization. We can all make a difference in our community or our company if we put ego to the side and heed the above four steps.

Based on the first four issues it is vital that we work to make sure that our money lives longer than we do, especially if number five is correct. My prediction is that they are spot on! Americans must face the facts and start planning for the future or they will be sadly mistaken when they reach the golden years and only to find fools gold.
