What is a Go-Giver?
Someone understands that they are given an enormous responsibility to bring value to those they lead. Bob describes to move from the “I” to the “other focus” and put the interest of others before their own.
“When we think of traditional leadership we sometimes think of the stereotype that the leader is all about themselves. I do feel that this is changing though.” Bob Burg
With a go-giver leader, they willingly give up their self-interest and understands the more value they bring around them, the more it will benefit the organization.
It takes vision and holding on to that vision to be a successful leader. Doing this helps create unity with the community and see the goal.
Bob says he would look for someone that has a history of the “other”. Having the person focused on the team and not the individual self. If you have that as a starting base, then you can look to get to the level 5 leader.
“The level 5 leader will take the blame and assign the credit.” Bob Burg
The level 5 leader will be the leader that is there for you and will run through a wall for you if they have to.
