#24: 3 Reasons We Need to Stop the Myth That Everyone Is a Leader

Download Episode Transcript

One of the biggest myths in organizations today is "everyone is a leader." Sure everyone needs to take full responsibility for themselves and their work as well as become an influencer regardless of positional authority. 

But having the ability to be an influencer or possessing good self-management skills is not the same as having the gift of leadership. The “everyone is a leader” myth, which has been blindly accepted as truth, actually waters down the significance and uniqueness of the gift of leadership and keeps people who don’t have that gift from finding out what they actually are great at doing.  It’s like telling an athletic team that all of its members are star players, when that is far from the reality. If all of the team members believed they are stars and their coaches manage them as if they are, there would be no teamwork, chaos would reign, and success would fly out the window.
