Intent-Based Leadership

What exactly is intent-based leadership? It is the ability to stop yourself from giving orders and working in an an environment where you are responsible for everything! Create Leaders – NOT followers. Is this easy? Definitely not. Is this doable? Absolutely! Does it create an awesome culture where people can be great? — Yes!

To some extent, the capacity for great leadership is innate. However, learning how to be a more effective leader is within everyone’s grasp. Intent-based leadership works when you allow yourself to let go and give others the freedom to soar. Strong leaders treat people the way they want to be treated.
