We assure you, your employees will work harder and better as they feel mutual support, trust and respect. Simple: you cannot fake production, and you have to produce results to be able to grow as a leader. To boost productivity, focus on tasks that yield the greatest returns, and eliminate everything that might slow, or even limit your productivity. On this level you will face hard decisions, taking responsibility and accountability for mistakes. When you get to this stage, the relationships with your employees will change, since not everyone will follow you on the path to higher productivity.
There you will move from leading a productive team to creating a leadership culture. In other words, you get to level 4 when you have developed your employees from followers to leaders.
Invest in people — they are the only resources that do not depreciate. We will not lie to you, reaching high levels of leadership is no easy thing to do.
You need to know in which level you are at the moment, so you can know what to focus on. For example, many leaders who reach level 4 continue focusing on increasing production, when they should be training future leaders instead.
When you are a level 4 leader, you are at the top of a pyramid of leaders you created. The company reaps benefits from all those leaders.
So take your time and build your pyramid. Be ready to work hard, since working with people and motivating them to develop may be the most laborious task you will face. You will reach level 5 by never stopping the learning process, training the best people, and fighting your own fears and insecurities. At level 5 your main goal is defining leadership, practicing what you preach, developing leaders, and thus creating a leadership culture.
Try to think of what leadership should be, and create a legacy.

A classroom teacher. A volunteer coordinator. A parent. But where are you on your leadership journey, and where do you go from here?
Over my years of teaching about leadership, that question exists at the heart of so many leaders. Everyone wants to know where they stand and how to get to the next level. And you are probably no different!
I wanted to help leaders understand and increase their effectiveness. And while there is more to this teaching than space in this blog, today I want to offer a general overview of the 5 Levels as a reminder that you are still on your way as a leader — and so am I!
So feel free to bookmark this page or print it out as a quick guide for your journey as a leader. After all, anyone can be appointed to a position!
While nothing is wrong with having a leadership position, everything is wrong with relying only on that position to get people to follow. At Level 1, people only follow if they believe that they have to. People who remain on the position level may find it difficult to work with volunteers. They truly only follow if they want to. But the news is not all bad about this level. It is a prime place for you to begin investing in your growth and potential as a leader. Level 2 — Permission Level 2 is based on relationship.
At this level, people choose to follow because they want to.You Level 5: When you are a level 4 leader, you are at the top of a pyramid of leaders you created.
