Has anyone ever told you, you were full of hot air? If so, you are not alone. I think this post will help you understand why our words should not be hot air but rather backed up by the foundation of our actions.
ttitude is contagious. Our attitude will determine our success or failure and the success or failure of others. Attitude is more important than anything else, it is more important than money than any of your circumstances than your failures or your successes.
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.
Texting is an easy and quick way to communicate to one or more people. However, it is also an easy and quick way to offend, ands mis-communicate.
Email and texting should never be a substitute for face to face communication or phone conversation. However, if crafted properly, these can be useful in reinforcing your ideas and increasing your influence.
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.
According to Steven Covey, “Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that upholds all relationships”. Trust is crucial in the leadership process. In fact, trust is required for effective leadership.
I’ve found that most successful leaders become successful through their insatiable drive to learn more. They are never satisfied with what they know, they always want to know more. In fact, successful leaders are somewhat obsessive with their desire and drive to learn.
A leader’s greatest challenge and most difficult task, is self-leadership. If you lead yourself correctly, you will influence others and they will follow. Failure to manage your self-leadership will create a loss of respect and the inability to influence, causing people to leave and follow others.
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.
