Leadership Lacking Integrity vs. Leadership EMPOWERED

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to do a call with Master Marketers, Andre Vatke and Steve Sakal.

You may or may not have heard it.  The topic was… How To Spot A Fake Guru

If you missed it, no big deal, you can read a blog post I did HERE on that very subject!

It was a good call but hindsight being 20/20 there are always things after the fact you wish you would have said.  Hence this blog post.

Now before I go any farther, I must say, after that call, if I wasn’t receiving them myself, I wouldn’t believe it!  The amount of emails and conversations I’ve had with people thanking me for having the COURAGE to STAND UP and SPEAK OUT LOUD what so many people are feeling and thinking, has been overwhelming.  (in a good way of course;))

And that alone FUELS ME to continue my quest in helping you understand the pitfalls out here on the Internet (or anywhere for that matter).  Regardless of what anyone says!

So let’s get down to the rest of the meat and potatoes… The 20/20 vision I didn’t share on my call.

Now granted I know the topic was on FAKE GURUS but in the grand scheme of things that term can be intertwined with Leadership Lacking Integrity…

So here’s my take when people in Leadership Lack Integrity…

  • They make “justifications” and “excuses”
  • They do a super job at making promises they never keep…
  • They make commitments and never follow through…
  • They become bullies when they are under pressure…
  • They have a hard time sustaining success…
  • And if they make a mistake…
  • They blame others to get the SPOTLIGHT off of themselves…
  • They try to makes others look weak and problematic…
  • And they never assume responsibility for their failures.

On the FLIP side of that coin…

When people in Leadership are EMPOWERED…

  • They have COURAGE when others are “concerned”
  • They stand strong in their VALUES no matter what…
  • They do what they say and say what they do…
  • They HONOR their commitments…
  • But MOST importantly…
  • If they make a mistake…
  • They take full responsibility for their actions…
  • They have have no problem apologizing when necessary and…
  • They make their wrongs right;)

Hope you enjoyed my take on Leadership Lacking Integrity vs. Leadership EMPOWERED…

And I hope it helps you on your journey to becoming the BEST Leader you can be!

Until next time…

Nothing but LOVE & FUN + DOWN & DIRTY!

    Another thing I would mention here and I’ll give an example, is that FAKE leaders / gurus will cite Bible stories and discredit those who are exposing them and their shady practices, simply because that is the only way they will remain on top. After all it’s your word against theirs. It’s a strategy that makes the person who is doing the exposing have to explain and prove their theory.

    Being a fan of someone is one thing but seeing them and their business practices for what they are is another.

    BE CAREFUL!!! Are you paying them to be their “groupy” or are you paying them to teach you about business????

    Great post! You do have a lot of good points here and spotting a fake guru is one important thing to take note. Having an empowered leader is really essential. How is it possible to transform from being a fake guru to an empowered leader? Thank you so much for sharing your ideas and knowledge about leadership.

  3. It is so very important to do your homework before you hand over your hard-earned cash to someone who promises the moon.

    And as always, listen to your INNER GUIDANCE.

    If something doesn’t feel right, leave it, no matter what your very sensible head might say. At the end of the day, the only one who honestly and truly knows what’s right for you is YOU.
