Andrepparttar heart of any organization is purpose and people:repparttar 105627 combination of its central purpose andrepparttar 105628 actions ofrepparttar 105629 people who manifest that purpose. Those people must be enlisted as cause leaders. Cause leaders do more than accomplish their jobs; they actually take leadership of those jobs and by doing so bring a special motivation, vision, and initiative torepparttar 105630 jobs.

Leadership is not position, it's performance. If you are a floor sweeper, say, you best accomplish your work not simply by doing floor sweeping but taking leadership of it: in other words, approachingrepparttar 105631 job withrepparttar 105632 distinctive initiative, care, and commitment that leadership entails.

These two essential premises begrepparttar 105633 question, how do leaders get more results, faster results on a continual basis?

The answer is simple: throughrepparttar 105634 Leadership Talk.

The Leadership Talk is a powerful results-generator, mayberepparttar 105635 most powerful results-generator you'll ever use. It works through your interacting with people so that they become motivated to be your cause leader(s) in achieving more results faster, continually.

Leadership Talks can be formal ways of communicating but mostly they are informal. Unlike a speech, they are usually interactive. They can be delivered anywhere: at a conference table, over lunch, at a water cooler, across a desk. (One ofrepparttar 105636 best Leadership Talks I have witnessed was given by a plant supervisor to one of his team members at a company picnic while they sat onrepparttar 105637 back of a truck, sipping beers.) And in many cases, an effective Leadership Talk can be given when roles are reversed, whenrepparttar 105638 audience speaks torepparttar 105639 speaker.

Finally, thoughrepparttar 105640 methodologies I've developed for The Leadership Talk are new, its roots go back intorepparttar 105641 mists of history. Throughout history, when people needed to accomplish great endeavors, one thing had to happen, a leader had to gather them together and speak fromrepparttar 105642 heart. That leader had to give a Leadership Talk.

Inrepparttar 105643 next two parts, I'll describerepparttar 105644 essential elements ofrepparttar 105645 Leadership Talk, so you can start developing and delivering them right away.

This too may seem like an obvious point, but it is a point many leaders miss as well. In leadership,repparttar greatest sin isrepparttar 105626 greatest treason, to getrepparttar 105627 right results forrepparttar 105628 wrong reasons.

For example, many leaders think that they can cost-cut their way to achieving a robust organization.
