In this episode, #1 Bestselling Author and Highly Acclaimed business & Entrepreneur Expert, Mel Abraham, talks about the 4 stages of leadership progression and what it takes to shift and create movements while leading from behind as a thought leader. Without elevating yourself to the highest level of leadership, things get messy and don’t turn out the way you want them to. If you are not good at leadership, you will find yourself in a solitary pursuit and your pace of movement will not be inertia-full.

However, when you understand the key principles of leadership, you are going to build momentum in which things move at an accelerating pace. You also end up with a bigger vision to look at things differently and people will march with you as champions and cheerleaders. So, what you need to know about it is that good leadership is empathy based, you come at it from a communication perspective and service is the fuel as it comes from a place of serving.

The Leadership Progression Model

There are 4 levels of leadership that create influence and change in people. All of them are phenomenal and as you move up this model, the level of influence increases.

  1. Tasker: They are the doers who do the heavy lifting part. They operate from to do lists and check off the tasks from it. Taskers are focused on completion of tasks.
  2. Manager: They focus on delegating the duty to the taskers and they are in fact driven by processes and systems. They manage those to get an outcome. The result that they look for is consistency.
  3. Leader: They are there to create a bigger vision for people to see and get behind as they are the role models. They focus on evolutionary change which allows things to move positively and grow.
  4. Thought Leader: They have elements of all the other levels of leadership and they focus on thinking. They are the thinkers who want to create a movement and people will rally for it. A thought leader creates revolutionary change by shifting the thought process and behavior.
