How Will You Grow?

As you seek to learn and grow as a leader, let me give you some advice about improve urselfhow to approach the process. After more than three decades of dedi­cated, continual effort to learn and grow, I offer the following suggestions:

Invest in Yourself First

Most leaders want to grow their business or organization. What is the thing more than any other that will determine the growth of that organization? The growth of the people in the organization. And what determines the people’s growth? The growth of the leader! As long as people are following you, they will be able to go only as far as you go. If you’re not growing, they won’t be growing either that or they will leave and go somewhere else where they can grow.

Investing in yourself first may look selfish to some of the people around you. They may even criticize you for it. But if they do, they don’t really understand how growth works. When airline  flight attendants explaining emergency procedures tell passengers to put their own oxygen mask on first before putting masks on their children, is that instruction selfish? Of course not! The children’s safety and well-being is dependent upon their parent being able to help them. As a leader, you are responsible for your people. They are depending on you! If you’re in no shape to lead well, where does that leave them?

Making The Tough Call

Every leader faces tough times and that’s when leaders distinguish tough callthemselves and show who they really are. Leading others can be very difficult and can take great courage. Of course, it’s not that way all of the time. About 95 percent of the decisions a CEO makes could be made by a reasonably intelligent high school graduate. What is often required is common sense. But CEOs don’t get paid for those decisions; they get paid for the other 5 percent! Those are the tough calls. Every change, every challenge, and every crisis requires a tough call, and the way those are handled is what separates good leaders from the rest.

How do you know when you’re facing a tough call and need to be at your best as a leader? You’ll know when the decision is marked by these three things: Continue reading “Making The Tough Call”

Finding The Main Thing

In order for you to finding the main thing when come to the decision making, here are few questions that you need to consider.

What gives me the greatest return? What is most rewarding? What is required of me? Those were not questions you could always readily answer. Early in a career, the easiest to answer is usually the one concerning requirements. You can work from a job description if you have one. On the other hand, most people don’t start getting a true sense of what give the greatest return for their effort until they reach their thirties—sometimes even later in life. And what is most rewarding to a person often changes during different seasons of life.

As you worked, reflected, and grew, you will slowly begin discovering the answers to those three key questions. This guiding principle was that the purpose of all work is results. If you wanted to accomplish objectives and be productive, you needed to provide forethought, structure, systems, planning, intelligence and honestly. But you need also know that you needed to keep things simple. If you had read a study of thirty-nine midsized companies stating the characteristic that differentiated the successful companies the unsuccessful was simplicity. The companies that are sold fewer products fewer customers, and who worked with fewer suppliers than other companies in the same industry were more profitable. Simple, focused operations brought greater results. As Warren Buffett observes, “The business schools reward difficult, complex behavior more than simple behavior, but simple behavior is more effective.” By striving for simplicity, I could help myself to keep my mind on the main thing.

Why Listeners Are More Effectives Leaders

Understanding People Precedes Leading Them

Leadership finds its source in understanding. To be worthy of the responsibility of leadership, a person must have insight into the human heart. Sensitivity toward the hopes and dreams of people on your team is essential it connecting with them and motivating them.

According famous author John C. Maxwell, Law of Connection, which states, “Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand”. You cannot connect with someone if you don’t try to listen to and understand them. Not only is it not fair to ask for the help of someone with whom you haven’t connected, it is also ineffective. If you want to be more effective = connecting with people, make it your goal to understand them.

Listening Is the Best Way to Learn

It is no accident that we have one mouth and two ears. When we fail to listen we shut off much of our learning potential. You’ve probably heard the phrase “seeing is believing’ Well, so is listening. Talk show host Larry King, said, “I remind myself every morning: nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So, if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening.”

Defining Moments Show Us Who We Really Are

Most days in our lives come and go they are much like all the others and don’t stand out. But there are a few days that are unlike all the others.define moments They do stand out because they give us an opportunity to stand up, be set apart from the rest of the crowd, and seize that moment or to remain sitting with the rest of the crowd and let it pass. These moments which bring for better or worse condition define us and they show us what we are really made of. We often focus on the milestones of life, important events that mark seasons and accomplishments. We happily anticipate a graduation, wedding, or promotion.
