Connection is the next C in the 5 step framework of leadership.
Leadership is about being able to build deep connections with others. Otherwise known as relationships.
In fact, in order to acquire leadership capital with your following, you have to build strong relationships.
There’s no other way.
As without deep connection, it’s an uphill battle to lead.
You must inherently like people.
Such a basic concept, but mission critical in your leadership.
If you do, you have an incredible advantage as building connections becomes much easier.
As when you do create connections, you increase your influence and can lead at a higher level.
