Sometimes being a leader can feel like a thankless job, am I right?
All those dreams about “what you’d do if you were in charge” often get replaced by negative, self-destructive thoughts about your efficacy and success once that dream becomes a reality.
I’ve joked with my kids that being a parent isn’t as much fun as it looks like. The same can be true of leadership in business.
Being in charge and making decisions that affect others can be frustrating and even intimidating at times. Leaders often share their doubts about whether they’ve made the right decisions or whether they’re doing a good job of leading their teams.
My mission is to build leaders worth following.
I want to work with people who understand that motivation through force and fear is an outdated and unappreciated style. It also doesn’t work if you want to create long-term results.
Leaders who focus on creating environments where people love to work and feel appreciated and valued for their contributions are the happiest and most highly engaged and productive.
But that doesn’t mean getting there is easy.
Creating a culture of engagement and empowerment in any organization takes both courage and effort.
And it begins with YOU.
True transformation begins when you become mindful of the way you think about and respond to every situation.
Like a single drop of water, you are a catalyst that starts the ripples of change—for your team, your organization, and the world beyond. When you learn to lead yourself and create powerful results, you affect everyone in your sphere of influence; the reach of your impact is immeasurable.
Being a leader is powerful. Leaders are at the heart of an organization and can make or break its success through their influence. As a leader, you are called to a higher standard.
Leadership is not about your title or a one-time action; it’s about service.
Effective leaders choose to make a difference.
What is your choice?
