5 Lies You’ve Been Taught About Leadership

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • The reason that leadership strategies often fail us is not because we aren’t executing them correctly. The reason they fail is is because they are based on a lie to begin with
  • Once you understand the lie behind many ineffective leadership practices, you can stop feeling frustrated and start seeing success in areas where you’ve previously failed.
  • The truth shall set you free. Knowing the truth about leadership and stepping into Buildership frees you to find solutions where there seemed to be none.

Over the years, most of us were trained to be leaders. We followed what we were told made "good" leaders and dutifully applied what we were trained to do, only to meet with frustration when our training didn't deliver the results we thought we should be seeing.

Many of us blame ourselves and look for even more leadership strategies hoping something will work. But the truth is, those strategies aren't working because they are based on lies we've been told about leadership. So if you're frustrated that the leadership strategies you've been taught aren't working the way you expected, maybe it isn't you after all. Today, we're pulling the curtain back from those lies and exposing the truth #LikeABuilder
