Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Lead But Not Manipulate

Lead But Not Manipulate

Motivational Power Quote

 

Lead But Not Manipulate   

“Blessed is he who has to admire, but not envy, to follow

but not flatter, and to lead but not manipulate.”

William Arthur Ward 1921 - 1994, Author

As I see it . . . . . . .

Lead but not manipulate

 

Great leaders are followed . . . . No matter what role the great leader fills in life people will follow them freely and support their quest.

 

When you’re put into a position  . . . . to lead . . . .  Lead by example.

 

In business great leader create a following of raving fans . . . . along testimonials and endorsements . . . . followed by personal recommendations and referrals.

 

Great leaders build their business . . . . by treating people with respect and courteous. They continue to strengthen and maintain strong business relationships through their actions.

 

In the business process a great leader lead from the front focus on solutions . . . . and in creating successful outcomes.

 

Great leaders lead . . . . . Weak leaders manipulate . . . .

 

Being a great leader is not . . . . an elected office . . . . a promotion . . . . or a title. Being considered a great leader is earned in the eyes and the hearts of the people that you have business relationships with.

 

Lead but not manipulate . . . . Manipulation is a one way ticket down a dead end road.

So true. It's better to attract people by your leadership than compel them to obey.
