NTUC LearningHub & The John Maxwell Co. in an Exclusive Partnership
Bringing World-class Leadership Programmes to Professionals
Kwek Kok Kwong, CEO, NTUC LearningHub & Mark Cole, CEO, The John Maxwell Co.
Many times we believe that we are not able to lead if we are not at the top; the corollary to this is that if we are at the top, then people would follow us. These are but a few myths of leadership. Often times we forget that we also have influence across our peers, and with our bosses. The truth is, influence can be used to impact anyone around us, whether at work, or in our personal lives, regardless of the position we are in. Learning to expand our influence and being a ‘360 leader’ would therefore be critical in enabling us to perform at our highest potential.
If we buy into the belief that leadership is reserved for people "at the top", we would get stuck on the lowest level of leadership. It’s the level where people only follow you because of your position, and it’s the least effective of the levels of leadership.
True leadership is about being able to achieve results whilst building teams and developing people to their highest potential. The pinnacle of leadership is where you are able extend your influence exponentially and to build a legacy of leadership in the organisation.
The 5 Levels of Leadership
Level 1: Position - People follow because they have to
Level 2: Permission - People follow because they want to
Level 3: Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organisation
Level 4: People Development - People follow you because of what you have done for them personally
Level 5: Pinnacle - People follow you because of who you are and what you represent
The 5 Levels of leadership gives a clear framework of developing our leadership skills. Each level has its upsides and
downsides and guidelines to move your leadership skills to the next level. Experience these frameworks and concepts in
John Maxwell training workshops and learn to apply them in your daily life.
