Level 5 Leadership also Applies to Life in General
Johan Chandler, Television, South Africa, Member
The principles applied by level 5 leaders also apply to life in general - Respect for others, humbleness, selflessness, commitment, drive and a passion to bring out the best in others. By allowing your people the glory and praise you build a committed team that will achieve results. To build the right team takes time and longterm investment.
You have to be passionate about people, life and your job to achieve this - your job needs to be a calling not a means to earn an income! The focus needs to shift from recruiting highly skilled (operationally) people to people with relevant human, life and leadership skills. You can teach operational competencies.

Level 5 Leadership is Rare
I totally agree with your points. But you see this form hardly in the world, because the leader has to really spend time with the people and bring out the best from them.
And most importantly, he should not worry about personal gain and credits he gets. A really tough task for him!

Lutheran Leadership

@India: I am sorry but I don't really get your point. To me it is obvious that a leader spends time with those who his own success is dependent on. If he does not spend time and care for his people, how can he be a good leader?
To me Level 5 Leadership is a very humble and almost Lutheran way to approach to live. A level 5 leader puts his own narcissistic needs aside and is happy with the fact that if his team is performing well. They get noticed, they make a difference. Then it wont take long before also the level 5 leader gets his recognition.
Anyway, this gets a bit skewed now but I think if narcissistic personal drivers for ones leadership is what gets one going (rewards, options, recognitions, your name on the door...) then I am prepared to question whether the motives for the leadership are really sound and healthy?
