Is Leadership a Contest?
Is everything a competition? Is that what leadership is in its core? Some say yes and others say no.
Greg Richardson weighed in with his post Leadership is Not a Contest. It gave us much to ponder and inspired our upcoming people skills chat.

Is Leadership a Contest? If Not, What Is It?
Do we lead to conquer and win? Do we lead to collaborate and create win/win? It’s an interesting subject that impacts people and results.
Some questions to get us thinking in advance of Sunday’s #Peopleskills Twitter chat:
- “Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people.” ~David Sarnoff founder of RCA Agree/Disagree?
- What attitudes in leaders make leadership a contest?
- If you don’t see life as a contest, can you be successful as a leader? Pls. explain.
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of seeing leadership as a competition/contest?
- How do competition and motivation relate?
- Do you see yourself as more competitive or collaborative? Why?
- What do competition and collaboration have in common?
- How can very collaborative people work for/with competitive types?
- For competitive leaders to be successful, what attitudes must they hire in othres?
These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.
