“We Leadership” focuses on the individuals of a team. More importantly, “We Leadership" is not solely focused on the team’s results. The focus is people first with results following second. "We Leadership" is powerful and will positively change an organization’s outcomes. Since "We Leadership" is focused on people before results, team members are not worried about job safety or other things that distract.  Unfortunately, too many leaders place their attention on self-serving motives, whereas “we” leaders are courageous in forging a different path. “We” leaders endorse open communication, show compassion, have empathy, and promote trust within their team.

Successful team leadership focuses on the “we.” Individual goals become secondary as all successful “we” leaders have learned the power of a team. “We” leaders do not direct discussions from center stage, but realize they can accomplish more with teamwork while putting aside ego to serve their team member’s needs. Jim Collins in his book Good to Great wrote, “Compared to high-profile leaders with big personalities who make headlines and become celebrities, the good-to-great leaders seem to have come from Mars. Self-effacing, quiet, reserved, even shy—these leaders are a paradoxical blend of humility and professional will. They are more like Lincoln and Socrates than Patton or Caesar.” (pp. 12-13) Effective leaders focus on team results. Be patient as this process takes time to institute. Focusing on “we” is a worthy leadership effort.
