Exploring Leaders And The Inner Circle

How does a “leader of leaders” assist the leaders who make up their Inner Circle to possibly become leaders of leaders themselves? I use the word “possibly” because this is rare. 

I believe the Leaders of Leaders become this beginning in their childhood with the order they fall into with their family relationships. Yet, plainly, it is the roll of the dice and the drawing of the cards that play a significant part in defining their future roles. In other words, they are not born leaders of leaders; they are made.

Since they are forged from their pasts, most become leaders of themselves, not leaders of Leaders. My definition of a leader of leaders is a person who is an organization builder. They bring numbers of people together. Relationships are what drives them. They build teams of people, some of whom become their inner circles.

Most Inner Circles comprise strong, capable individuals, not people gatherers. Although successful by themselves, they fail as builders of teams. 

Still, the leader of leaders need people like this if their organization is going to grow. They understand what to look for and nurture.

Leaders are unafraid of failure. They can stand before any group and say what needs to be said or make the phone call as often as necessary. They go to bat thinking “Homerun” when looking for land to buy and then the money to seal the deal and build.

No electricity? Call the president of the giant company that owns the poles and wire or enroll children in a non-existent facility! And that’s just the beginning.

Search out the Inner Circle member who shows this metal and get out of their way. You may have a leader of leaders in your midst. So give them help and guidance ASAP because they are going to be who and what they are Anyway.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
