Today is the first day of the rest of your leadership journey.
You want to become better leader, but don’t know where to start.
I’ve narrowed the focus for you, to help you get started.
Basically, the main four things to be thinking about between now and when you start to become a better leader relate to these four questions:
- What’s my impact on people?
- What’s my frame of mind and what am I doing to create this impact?
- What do I want my impact to be on people (to be a better leader)?
- What mindset and behaviors to I need to stop and start to create that impact?
The best leaders get great results, of course. But they also have a positive impact on people. They bring out the best in them. Are you having this impact on people? If not, what impact are you having?
Current Frame of Mind
What’s behind your behavior? That is, what’s your mindset that’s driving your behavior?
Before deciding what impact you want to have on people, think about the best leaders you’ve known. What impact did they have on you? How did they make you feel? What impact do you want to have on people? (Hint, it should relate to energizing them, making them feel capable, strong and valuable.)
Future Mindset and Behavior
What mindset and behaviors must you adopt in order to have the future impact you desire?
Don’t forget to enjoy the journey.
