“Leaders aren’t built by just jumping in and figuring it out––they’re built through constant input and feedback from an experienced leader.” Mac Lake
When we understand that leaders make leaders, this thought makes perfect sense. However, for many, the approach to leadership is based on the SOS model, the idea that if you throw someone into the deep end of leadership, they either “sink or swim.” The other approach is the YO-YO model, “You are on your own.”
Great leaders develop when they receive input, guidance, and feedback from experienced leaders. This mentoring gives future leaders opportunity to grow properly.
