Title: LEADERSHIP: IS IT JUST ABOUT THE LEADERS?


1
LEADERSHIP IS IT JUST ABOUT THE LEADERS?
SUPREME COUNCIL LEADERSHIP SEMINAR MARCH 27,
2010 LEXINGTON, MA.
2
JUST WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED LEADERSHIP?
  • Leadership is not just about leaders its also
    about followers
  • Successful leadership depends upon the followers
    perception of the leader
  • Leadership is in the eye of the follower

3
LEADERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS
  • James Kouzes and Barry Posner The Leadership
    Challenge surveyed 10,000 managers nationwide
    from a wide variety of private and public
    organizations to tell them what they looked for
    in a leader.
  • There are several essential tests that a leader
    must pass before we are willing to grant the
    title leader.
  • Lets take a look

4
HONESTY
  • Leaders are considered honest if they do what
    they say they are going to do when they say they
    will do.
  • Another essential is the leaders display of
    trust in others.
  • Trust is a risk game the leader has to ante up
    first.
  • Think of the chaos that happens when a
    leaderwithin a Valley is less than totally
    honest about a challenging situation!

5
COMPETENCE
  • We must believe that a person knows what he or
    she is doing.
  •  
  • If we doubt the leaders abilities, were
    unlikely to enlist in the crusade!
  • Value Added Competence The ability to
    motivatesell an idearewardrecognize a team.
  • Think of degree direction and management with
    competent individuals think what happens in your
    Valley without them!

6
BEING FORWARD LOOKING
  • Direction and concern for the futurevision
    dream calling
  • Clarity of purpose and direction
  • Maintain the core valueschange the processes by
    which they are managed for the benefit of the
    customers membersJim Collins.

7
INSPIRATION
  • Enthusiastic, energetic and positive about the
    future!
  • Essential that leaders inspire our confidence in
    the validity of the goal.
  • A good example is that the Scottish Rite is NOT a
    charity as has been clarified by Commander Mc
    Naughton.

8
CREDIBILITY
  • More than anything else, people want leaders who
    are credible.
  • This sense of security enables us to let go of
    our reservations and release enormous personal
    energy on behalf of the common vision
  • A good example is that we are a fraternity,
    bonded together by fellowship and care for one
    another. Its the core value that has been
    revisited by Commander McNaughton that is part of
    reshaping our future.

9
LEADERSHIP PRACTICES
  • THERE ARE FIVE FUNDAMENTAL PRACTICES THAT ENABLE
    LEADERS TO EARN FOLLOWERS CONFIDENCE andGET
    EXTRAORDINARY THINGS DONE

10
CHALLENGE THE PROCESS
  • A willingness to change the status quo.
  • Explore ways to improve the organization
  • Treat mistakes as a learning experience
  • A good example is a new way to target the market
    for New members by doing innovative things

11
INSPIRE A SHARED VISION
  • Envision the future with a positive outlook
  • Expressive..attract followers through skillful
    communications
  • Show others how mutual interests can be met
    through commitment to a common purpose
  • A good example might be a way to present degrees
    in
  • A Lodge setting after having had to vacate a
    former facility that was equipped with a theatre.

12
ENABLE OTHERS TO ACT
  • Leaders infuse people with spirit developing
    relationships
  • They stress collaborative goals
  • They involve others in planning
  • Ensure that people feel strong and capable
  • A good example might be a Monthly Officers
    Meeting where the activities for the upcoming
    month are discussed and the leader Presiding
    Officer is able to guide the Officers through
    the process of ensuring that they have planned,
    organized, developed and are now controlling an
    agenda of events.

13
MODEL THE WAY
  • Leaders are clear about their business values and
    beliefs
  • Behavior is consistent with values
  • Leaders also break projects down into bite size
    parts so that they are achievablecreating small
    wins!
  • A good example is how often Commander McNaughton
    refers
  • to Supreme Councils transactions as being the
    best value for the corporation.

14
ENCOURAGE THE HEART
  • Link recognition with accomplishments
  • Let others know that their efforts are
    appreciated
  • Nurturing a team spirit that enables people to
    sustain
  • continued efforts
  • A good example is the Thank You Note. What a
    positive way to make someone feel good about what
    they have done!

15
UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP
  • Leadership is a relationship, a unique and
    special trust between the leader and followers.
  • The development of this trust requires our full
    attention as leaders
  • Here are five pre-requisites to building and
    maintaining this bond of trust

16
KNOW YOUR FOLLOWERS
  • Find out what is important to them
  • A good example is Why are you here? Our mission
    is to help you get extra-ordinary things done
    that are of mutual benefit and value to your
    Valley and its customers members

17
STAND UP FOR YOUR BELIEFS
  • Remain open to others Listen, understand,
    empathize.
  • Keeping the core values of the Rite is critical
    knowing that we can change how we get things
    done is important!

18
SPEAK WITH PASSION
  • Communicate with excitement paint word pictures
  • Tell stories
  • Enable others to feel what you experience
  • What about that special conversation with a new
    memberand those necessary on going conversations
    with our current members who we dont see very
    often

19
LEAD BY EXAMPLE
  • Leaders are role models
  • We look to them for how we should behave
  • If leaders ask followers to observe certain
    standards,
  • Then the leaders need to live by the same rules
  • A good example might be the frequent planning
    sessions that are held among officers and
    leadersits always inspirational when someone
    says What if we do this a different way?

20
CONQUER YOURSELF
  • The real struggle of leadership is internal
  • Internal ongoing questionsAm I doing the right
    thing?
  • Are we going in the right direction? What impact
    will this action have on the future of the
    organization?
  • This all begins with determining your value
    system
  • The best example is when a major shift/change is
    about to be madeplace of meetingfinancial
    adjustmentrequired personnel changeto know from
    the leaders that the bodys compass is
    calibratedand things will be positivein a new
    direction. Change is very difficult for some of
    our older members!

21
THE EYE OF THE FOLLOWER
  • THESE CHARACTERISTICS, PRACTICES AND
    RELATIONSHIPS ARE TOUGH MEASURES 
  • MAY NOT SEEM RIGHT TO BE JUDGED SO HARSHLY
  • BUTFOLLOWERS PERCEIVE LEADERS IN THEIR OWN
    TERMSTHOSE TERMS ARE NOT ALWAYS FAIR.
  •  
  • THE LEADER IS NOT A LEADER UNLESS THERE ARE
    FOLLOWERS THERE ARE NO TRUE FOLLOWERS UNLESS THE
    LEADER IS A LEADER IN THE EYE OF THE FOLLOWER.
  • The Leadership Challenge by James M. Kouzes and
    Barry Z. Posner
