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.
Effectively dealing with professional and personal difficulties creates influence.
“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.
