What makes a leader a leader? What defines a leader? We all have someone within our lives that have certainly have made an impact and shown us how to blaze forward on a path, but what defined the characteristics of that individual? Just as we have different ideas, the definition itself may vary as well. One that is probably one of the most prevalent could very well be the what the US Military uses to define their leaders: “Military leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish the mission by providing purpose, direction, and motivation. The command is the authority a person in the military service lawfully exercises over subordinates by virtue of his rank and assignment or position.”
This week on The Malliard Report Jim welcomes Brent N. Cann of IMPACT Consulting and Training. Brent and his team (Brent is fantastic but Eagle truly is the most valuable member of their team) are in the business of pushing people forward to become some of the most efficient forms of themselves. Or as they put it “…centered around building individuals, teams, and organizations. We do not train just for the sake of training, but rather we train to provide you, your organization, or community growth and value creation. We want anyone who attends one of our courses to walk away with a better understanding of who they are, or what the company they work for truly represents and know that it will enhance performance in whatever your personal or professional endeavors may lead you, or simply prepare you to take on whatever everyday life throws at you. In an average course you will realize your limitations are much more than you ever imagined. In fact, it may be the first time you really meet yourself. We do not train to the “lowest common denominator” but rather push the limits of individuals and groups knowing they will step up and perform to levels never imagined…”
