Leadership is influence, and when a leader learns to function on the Permission level, everything changes.


People do more than merely comply with orders. They actually start to follow.

And they do so because they really want to. Because the leader begins to influence people with relationship, not just position.

When people feel liked, cared for, included, valued, and trusted, they begin to work together with their leader and each other. And that can change the entire working environment. The old saying is really true: Production qualifies and separates true leaders from people who merely occupy leadership positions. Good leaders always make things happen.

They get results. They can make a significant impact on an organization. Not only are they productive individually, but they also are able to help the team produce. No one can fake Level 3. Some people never move up from Level 2 Permission to Level 3 Production. However, if you desire to go to higher levels of leadership, you simply have to produce.

There is no other way around it. On Level 3, the emphasis is on personal and corporate productivity. The ability to create a high-productivity team, department, or organization indicates a higher level of leadership ability than most others display. But to reach the upper levels of leadership that create elite organizations, leaders must transition from producers to developers.

Good leaders on Level 4 invest their time, energy, money, and thinking into growing others as leaders.

How does this emphasis on people and people decisions translate into action? Leaders on the People Development level of leadership shift their focus from the production achieved by others to the development of their potential.

And they put only 20 percent of their focus on their personal productivity while putting 80 percent of it on developing and leading others.

Rare is the leader who reaches Level 5—the Pinnacle. Not only is leadership at this level a culmination of leading well on the other four levels, but it also requires both a high degree of skill and some amount of natural leadership ability.

The individuals who reach Level 5 lead so well for so long that they create a legacy of leadership in the organization they serve. Pinnacle leaders stand out from everyone else. They are a cut above, and they seem to bring success with them wherever they go.

The 5 Levels of Leadership

Leadership at this high level lifts the entire organization and creates an environment that benefits everyone in it, contributing to their success. Level 5 leaders often possess an influence that transcends the organization and the industry the leader works in. Most leaders who reach the Pinnacle do so later in their careers. But this level is not a resting place for leaders to stop and view their success. It is a reproducing place from which they make the greatest impact of their lives.

With gratitude and humility, they should lift up as many leaders as they can, tackle as many great challenges as possible, and extend their influence to make a positive difference beyond their own organization and industry. Thank you very much, this has greatly improved my understanding of models of leadership as an education student.

John C. Maxwell explains how you can understand your current position, and how you can move upwards on the leadership ladder built of five levels: Maxwell is a bestselling author, speaker, and leadership expert. As you develop, you will move through five levels , which will multiply your amount of work, but at the same time, with each passed stage, you will feel that leadership gets easier.

There is no shortcut since every new level is built upon the previous one. Moving up takes a long time, a lot of patience and commitment , but the higher you get, the more fulfilled you will feel until you finally see the end goal: When you sit on the managerial stool, your first task is to show your boss and the employees that they made the right decision , and show them how you can help them succeed.

Now, just having a managerial title does not mean you are a leader since a title is not equal to power , but it does mean that your status has improved. Instead, use your powers to inspire and motivate people and build a following. Caring about your position only will do you harm since people cannot tolerate leaders who do not value them, which can cause a high turnaround.

Most people chose between two paths: However, productivity is essential at level 3, and as we said, you cannot skip levels. We assure you, your employees will work harder and better as they feel mutual support, trust and respect.

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.And they put only 20 percent of their focus on their personal productivity while putting 80 percent of it on developing and leading others.
