The Leadership Ladder

Almost universally, ladders need something to lean against. They are either held up by the existing structure or they require the assistance of others for support.

As we climb the ladder – specifically as we ascend the leadership ranks – we are most certainly assisted by others. The success of our ladder is not a result of our actions.

This week, consider:

  • Who held your ladder as you climbed to where you are now?
  • How did their support and encouragement prepare you for what you experienced?
  • Who in your circle stands out as someone who you can help?
  • Are you asking, “How far up can I go?” or “How far can I help others go?

Perhaps the most beneficial thing we can do as leaders is to intentionally support others by holding their ladder.

All the best,
