JLBC Recognizing leadership stages
The first sign of leadership potential is the transition from being self-focused and performing your role to a high standard to becoming more aware of and helpful to others. Potential leaders then start taking on more responsibility and begin questioning the ways things are done and coming up with ideas for doing things differently.
As a potential leader develops, others in the organization start to recognize their vision and that they have a talent for spotting meaningful opportunities that ask them what they do differently now that they are at this stage will benefit the team or the organization as a whole. Potential leaders thrive on added responsibility, and when they have a team to manage, they contribute at a higher level, working well with
their peers and showing a talent for developing team members. Other staff members naturally gravitate toward them to sound out ideas—a process that may develop into more formal mentoring or coaching roles. Ultimately, they start to develop the skills needed to nurture the next generation of leaders in deciding between them the areas they would like to create next. When they have a team to manage, they contribute at a higher level by identifying role models who could help them make the next transition.
