The product label reads, Liquid Leadership: Guaranteed to Fix All Your Leadership Needs! Are you desiring more responsibility on the job, or maybe a promotion to the next level in your organization? But you are not sure that your leadership skills measure up and you do not know how to fix the problem. Well…I have the answer for you, and it is Liquid Leadership. Just think about it! All you need is one pump of Liquid Leadership on your beef, chicken, or fish. Squirt some on your cereal, in your morning coffee, or in your protein drink before you work out. Gently push down on the plunger and allow Leadership Liquid to flow into your palm. Then rub gently on your skin to get a leadership glow that will be the envy of your friends, relatives, co-workers, and better yet, your boss!
Don’t you wish leadership development and growth were that easy? It’s not! We must dedicate the time, effort, and persistence to grow. Leadership is an art, and as with any of the arts, practice is required. We all know that our society is one of instant gratification, but there is no easy path in personal development, and Liquid Leadership is nothing more than a tongue-in-cheek, humorous spoof on my part.
What is not funny are the people in leadership positions who neglect their development. When this happens, they not only pay for it, but the people working for them suffer. They suffer with micro-managers, bosses who crush ideas and dreams, insecure supervisors always on the lookout for someone who might take their place, and the list goes on. Take the time to develop your leadership skills and be the individual that others want to work for and be the person who invests in the lives of other people.
