The text “Leading At A Higher Level” is written by Ken Blanchard whose School of Business I am enrolled.

Leadership and Organizations Notes


The intent of the following post will be to share notes from the text “Leading at a Higher Level” written by Ken Blanchard. It is actually cool to be a Graduate School by a well-know Author and Authority on Leadership. The degree I am pursuing is a Master of Science in Accounting.

The following are salient points from the Introduction of the text manual: “Leading At A Higher Level.”

  • When a lion roars, the interpretation is: “This is my territory and no one cross me.” As a matter-of-fact, it is said that “a lion will kill their son if challenged by the cub for control of the territory.”
  • Viewing global leadership, in their various capacities, too many choose the path of self-serving rather than serving.
  • Currently, leaders consider leadership as “power and control” vs ” leading at a higher level.”
  • The leading at a higher level paradigm is founded on “the capacity to influence others by unleashing their power and potential to impact the greater good.” – Ken Blanchard.
  • The basis of a higher purpose is a compelling vision, outward focused and ultimately, intrinsically honorable.
  • The development of people – both internal (employees) and external (customers) are critical to the success of the company.
  • “Leading At A Higher Level,” the process of achieving worthwhile results while acting with respect, care, and fairness for the well-being of all involved. The eliminates all self-serving leadership.
  • When Leading at a higher level is examined there are four things accomplished:
  1. Right Target and Vision: Perspective
  2. Good Customer-centric behavior: External
  3. Staff esteem highly: Internal
  4. The Leadership is impeccable: C-Suite

Effective Leadership start on the inside, and the right kind of leadership is Servant Leadership…Leadership grounded in humility and focused on the greater good. – Ken Blanchard
