If life were easier we would become complacent and stagnate in our growth. Use every opportunity for personal growth.
I don’t think there is ever an instance where one person is the team, or where one person is responsible for the success or failure of the team. Whether at work or within the family, I believe it always involves a team effort.
We must work to increase our influence by adding value every day. Do this and you will increase your leadership. To lead others, you must influence! Do these 10 actions regularly, and watch your influence increase!
Transformational Influence is a term I created from witnessing the transformation of people’s lives through conversation, prayer, and commitment to others. Transformational Influence occurs when we affect the way a person thinks, acts or behaves through our conversations, personal actions or simply our intention.
Life has its ups and downs, its turbulence and its smooth flying. We sometimes stall, but hopefully, we change our attitude and recover to make a smooth landing.
The reality is, there will be times of discouragement. But discouragement doesn’t mean we have to fall apart or quit.
As you stare down on this big ugly beast, realize that your reaction will determine your success or failure What will your reaction be, discouragement or comfort? Your answer depends on you. I think all of us will feel despair in the beginning. But it doesn’t have to consume us. In fact, I believe we must take advantage of these situations and find ways to stay motivated and encouraged in difficult times.
By definition, leaders cannot wait. If they do, they are not leaders, but merely followers. I think initiative takes a little bit of faith bathed in risk.
As a leader, one of the most frustrating things is to have someone on my team not take the initiative to make things happen. Instead they sit back and wait for direction, or constantly need my approval that their path or ideas are right.
I want to passionately influence people! If you love what you do, you’ll do more of it, so fin what it is you love.
“Effective leaders keep one eye one the compass and one eye on the clock.” Commit to more focus in 2017 and become a more efficient and effective leader.
A New Year is a great time to reflect!
