After spending many years leading organizations and studying leadership, I’m convinced an effective leader must know three things.
- Know where the group needs to go. Effective leaders have a vision for the group.
- Know how to get there. Leaders must know the road that leads to the destination.
- Know how to get others to follow. Others may help a leader do the first two things. But when it comes to getting people to follow, nobody else can do it. It is the leader’s responsibility.
