When we cultivate something, we “acquire or develop, to win the favor of, prepare and use.” The very definition is powerful. When we consider leadership we need to apply cultivation.
Relationships must be cultivated.
Trust must be cultivated.
Vision must be cultivated.
These three areas are only the beginning.
Leaders must also understand the need to cultivate leadership. Acquiring and preparing others to lead determines the success of our leadership.
Cultivate leaders by mentoring.
Cultivate leaders by leaving a legacy.
