Leaders Are For You

Looking back on all of the leaders I have ever worked for, the only ones that I remember in a positive light are the leaders that I felt were completely, and unapologetically in my corner! If you want to reach your potential as a leader, then every single person in your area of influence… up and down, must feel without a shadow of a doubt that you are for them.

In this episode we are going to address where I think the problem lies, and what we can start doing about it today.

Leaders Celebrate

Most of us are super saturated and pre-occupied with our tasks, families, and lives. It can be a real challenge to intentionally create an environment where everyone in our circle feels heard, valued and appreciated. We often have a tendency to focus on the immediate and leave the most vulnerable behind. Intentionally celebrating those around us builds resiliency, mental health, loyalty, and increases productivity.

Leaders Zip It

Everyone struggles at times to uphold our personal values, let alone the values of our organization. In Professional Military Education we are taught that demonstrating Idealized Influence, means walking the walk and becoming the leader people want to emulate in become. To be truly effective, we can’t simply be a leader people want to follow, we need to know how to create leaders worth following.

Leaders Drive the Train

More
Sometimes we find ourselves dealing with situations we never intended to create, or even imagined were possible. Sometimes we create or even inherit toxic teams, cultures, and environments. It is crucial to recognize that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and out of control environments are often the result of lots and lots of bad decisions. Fortunately, there is an easy tool to get this train back on track, if you’re ready to put it to use.

Leaders Are Kind

Where the eyes go, so goes the mind. It’s no wonder that when we focus on our situation, our problems, our goals or ambitions we often find ourselves less happy & less healthy. Numerous studies have linked not only long term happiness, but long term health, at least in part, to having an external, rather than an internal focus.

Leaders Grow Capacity

10/7/2019
More
Even with everyone on the team pulling their weight, at times we can feel like we’re one new task away from shutting down. The ability to take on new tasks, lose team members, and grow ourselves into the teams our organizations need us to be is measured in our capacity. Without healthy capacity we can feel pressured, stretched thin & ready to snap. - Time is Strategically allocated to the most important tasks and objectives - The team has the time, skill sets, resources, and leadership...

Leaders Execute

More often than not, we aren’t judged on the culture we create, but on the way our teams execute. It’s no surprise then, that we will do almost anything to finish the job on standard, on time and on budget. Unfortunately, without a healthy culture, high performing teams are often built on the sacrifices of the individual team members. These sacrifices add up, and more and more often they lead to burnout, conflict, and the destruction of individuals, families, and teams.

Leaders Foster Alignment

9/16/2019
More
Like it or not life is a team sport. Even though every one of us has different ambitions, wants, needs and goals, the fact is that none of us can do it alone. The same way that none of us can provide for our own needs, make our own shoes, clothes or tools, none of us can be everywhere, and do everything it takes to be successful in the workplace. Now, more than ever we are highly specialized, and in order for any individual to truly succeed, teams have to have a solid foundation and...
