Craig Groeschel | How to Lead When You're Not In Charge
"Why is leading up so important?"
"If you want influence, care about people. People would rather follow a leader with a heart than a leader with a title. Honor matters - honor publicly results in influence privately. If you want to be over, learn to be under. Respect is earned, honor is given. Timing matters - look at the rhythms of those that you serve. "
– Craig Groeschel
In his leadership podcast, Craig dives into the leadership philosophy of leading up - serving and working from the bottom to support your leader or boss, and through which to affect your organization, develop more responsibility and influence, and ultimately grow as a leader yourself.
