When it comes to the level of success of any organization, there is one thing that I have learned to be a universal truth. That truth is that the leadership in place, more than any other single factor, will determine the ultimate success of any organization.


Here, we will take lessons from world renowned leadership author John C. Maxwell’s best-selling leadership book, “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.”


In his book, Maxwell says that “everything rises and falls on leadership.” In my study of business organizations, governments and sports organizations, I have found this to be true.


Law No. 1 of “21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” is the “Law of the Lid.” This law states that a person’s leadership ability is the lid that determines a person’s level of effectiveness.


Additionally, the impact that you have on an organization is determined by the level of your leadership abilities. Simply put, an organization’s success will never exceed the level of its leadership.
