Characteristics of Great Leaders
Content from author Jon Gordon

Challenging times require leaders who can lead others through the challenges. Now more than ever we need great leadership in our government, schools, businesses, hospitals and organizations. Good leadership won’t suffice. We need great leadership. There is a difference.

· Good leaders get people to believe in them.
· Great leaders inspire people to believe in themselves.
· Good leaders say “Watch what I can do.”
· Great leaders say “Let me show you what you can do.”
· Good leaders catch fish for others so they can eat today.
· Great leaders teach people how to fish so they can eat for a lifetime.

Having worked with countless leaders over the years in businesses, schools and professional sports I’ve realized that great leadership is really a transfer of belief. Great leaders share their belief, vision, purpose and passion with others and in the process they inspire others to believe, act and impact. Great leaders are positively contagious and they instill confidence and belief in others.

Great sales managers inspire their sales people to believe in themselves and their product/service. Great school principals inspire their teachers to believe they can make a difference. Great teachers inspire and empower their students to believe in themselves. Great pastors inspire their congregations to serve and impact the community. Great sports coaches inspire their teams to believe they can win. And the people who have changed the world have been those who instilled in others the confidence to step up, serve, take initiative and create positive change. You don’t need a title to be a leader. You just need to lead.

To lead others in a powerful way you must invite them on your bus, share your vision for the road ahead and then encourage, empower and inspire them to drive their own bus. In the process, instead of having just one bus that you drive, you create a fleet of buses and bus drivers, all moving in the same positive direction. When you create a fleet of buses and empower people to drive their own bus, you generate an amazing amount of power and momentum that becomes an unstoppable force. This is what great leadership is all about.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for SOUP

"So often we only concern ourselves with wins and losses. We overlook what is at the core of success, and that is the 'culture' of the team that is created by the leader or leadership group. If you create a culture where all members of the team can thrive and do their jobs effectively, then the score will take care of itself. Jon gives you the recipe of how to create a culture of greatness for your team, organization, or family."
—Mike Smith, Head Coach, The Atlanta Falcons

"In a world where leaders are pulled in a million different directions, Soup reminds us that we must make time to cultivate engaged relationships in order to build a winning organization and team."
—Margaret Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, RE/MAX International Inc.

"Told in an entertaining parable form, Soup will help you understand how to nurture the greatness in others so that you can become great as a team."
—Mark Batterson, Lead Pastor of National Community Church and author of Primal

"Soup provides the key ingredients to establishing culture and is another example of how Gordon's writing transcends common thought."
—Sam Presti, Executive Vice President and General Manager, the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder

"There's a common problem in business today. It's a people problem . . . but maybe not in the way you would think. We spend so much time focusing on the bottom line that many fail to focus on the people who make the bottom line what it is. People matter and how we lead them matters. This is why I recommend Jon Gordon's new book. It provides the recipe for mobilizing and engaging a team."
—Chris Brogan, New York Time bestselling author of Trust Agents and Social Media 101
