What is Leadership?

Intent-Based Leadership starts with rejecting the idea that leadership is for the select few at the top and instead embracing in highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level. This method of leadership is based on empowerment, not ego, and process, not the personality of the leader.

  1. Practical Empowerment: When we give our people more authority, we actually create more effective leaders.
  2. Technical Competence: When we engage our minds in what we are doing, we perform with better results.
  3. Organizational Clarity: When leaders set clear goals and people know how to do their jobs, we can take deliberate action.
