The 5 Styles of Being a Leader

I was teaching a seminar recently and a young film producer told me “I am not a good manager”.  I asked him why he believed this.  He described a recent series of disasters that he had overseen with his team.

I asked him “who are the people on your team?”

He said his cousin was helping out with accounting and his uncle was in sales.

This is not a “leading people” problem

His leadership problem had nothing to do with management or leadership skills.  It was not a problem with his skills in leading people. It was a Human Resources challenge.

When leading teams, you need people who are both motivated and experienced before you can delegate work to them. This video explores how you identify the right roles for the right people, and how you put this into practice as a leader.
