Description

Leadership development for everyone in the blue collar workforce, those who support them, and those who lead them. Leadership is influence. Influence is built daily, not in a day.

There are two types of influence: 1) Artificial influence which comes with a title, position, or rank and is reserved for those who have formal authority over others; and 2) Authentic influence which is based on a person's character and the relationships they build, and it's available to anyone with or without a position of authority because it's based on moral authority (who you are and how you do what you do).

Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 11 of 30)Managers of people (low impact leaders) communicate. However, high impact leaders of people move beyond communication and make a connection with their team members. When you're able to build trust with your team, you move beyond communication and begin to connect.Throughout my career, I remember hearing people moan and groan about a "lack of communication." I also know these people didn't trust their leaders and most often didn't even like their leaders. When people won't share information or withhold critical information, it always creates distrust.When you connect with your team, you're building relationships. When relationships are formed, people begin to follow you because they want to, not because they have to.
Blue-Collar Leadership & Supervision: Unleash Your Team's Potential (Part 10 of 30)Trust is the foundation of leadership (influence). Intention is the foundation of trust.

If your intention is to motivate (mutual benefit), then you will develop a foundation upon which trust can be built.In this episode, Mack will discuss the importance of trust and the impact it has on the leader's ability to lead beyond the artificial influence that comes with their title, position, or rank. When a leader's builds trust they no longer need artificial influence because they'll begin to lead at a higher level with authentic influence.
