What’s your level of leadership competency?

Jul 14, 2022
dissecting the four stages of leadership competency

At CRE Success, we’ve developed a framework covering the four stages of leadership competency.

It starts with following others, when you have no authority and little influence. Many people stay at this stage throughout their careers.

For those who choose the leadership track, it culminates with being followed by others - when a leader has maximum influence without the use of any formal authority.

Between these two extremes is the difference between managing and leading – which is a journey in itself.

This chart shows how you can move through the stages of follows others, manages others, leads others and followed by others, depending on your use of authority and your degree of influence.

To understand the framework more, and figure out which stage you’re in, watch the video on this page or take a listen to episode 96 of CRE Success: The Podcast.
