Level 5 Leadership


Definition: Level 5 Leadership is the highest stage in a hierarchy of leadership levels described by Collins ('01). Level Five Leaders take companies from good to great by building enduring greatness through a paradoxical combination of personal humility and professional will.
L5L is based on the idea that respect towards people, selflessness by the leader, and a strong powerful commitment to achieve results, bring out the best in subordinates.
The levels described by Collins are:
L5: Level 5 Executive
L4: Effective Leader
L3: Competent Manager
L2: Contributing Team Member
L1: Highly Capable Individual
