Abstract

The point of the CBS Money Watch blog post this week is that, to be a leader, you have to find your uniqueness.  That’s a process of scratching and picking, of thinking and reflecting and feeling.  The action step is “be curious and look where you don’t want, at parts of you that you’d rather ignore,” like your disabilities and aspects you don’t like.

I’ll offer a few more practical steps at the end.  But first, it’s vital that you see why the advice this week isn’t popular in the multi-billion dollar leadership industry.  Unless you are inoculated from the claims of some in this group, you can start to believe that a standard process can transform you into a leader.  It can—a mediocre leader, that is, who is a cheap knock-off of a thousand others.   Seeing how the industry became a victim of its own success will prevent you from falling victim to bogus claims and programs that distract you from the real work of developing yourself as a leader.
