The election is a week away. One word on everyone’s mind is leadership.

Leadership is often defined by those who hold positions of power regardless of their ability or moral character.

Instead, we need to define leadership for ourselves and consider its place in our lives and businesses.

Strong, healthy, and effective leadership is crucial to making the impact we desire.   

The Attitude of Command is all about leadership, starting with leading ourselves and then shifting our focus outward to lead others. 

Here’s the 3-2-1 on this aspect of the Attitude of Command.



  1. Our titles aren’t going to automatically qualify us for leadership. We must identify and emulate healthy examples of leadership if we are to become the leaders we want to be.
  2. Leaders surround themselves with other leaders. As we look to fill the gaps in our businesses, we must not be afraid to gather other strong leaders around us.
  3. There is no “one right way” to be a leader. We must own our version of leadership, trusting others will follow through with our directives, if we are to develop the Attitude of Command.



  1. Identify three people you believe are healthy and effective leaders and list the characteristics you admire in them.
  2. Choose at least one person in a position of power who does NOT reflect the type of leader you want to be and identify the characteristics and behaviors you do NOT want in your version of leadership.
