Action Wheel Leadership
Authentic leadership action is a subset of human action and occurs when the leader, the leadership team, and the organization are in alignment with the world of business and commerce.
Every authentic leadership action begins at Meaning, goes on to Mission and then to Power. This then leads to conversations about Structure, Resources, and Existence. Fulfillment is the completed action that embraces existence, resources, structure, power, mission and meaning.
Over the years, I have found that most issues center on meaning, mission and power, but that our leadership slides too quickly toward structure, resources and existence.
We reorganize (structure), throw money at the problem (resources), or pray for a miracle (existence)! ~Bob Terry in Authentic Leadership: Courage In Action.
90% of all leadership solutions begin "above the line" in Mission, Meaning and Power. 90% of leadership's time is typically spent "below the line" in Existence, Resources and Structure.
