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.
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.
Genuine integrity is the foundation of a person’s credibility. Credibility creates confidence, and that confidence allows influence.
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.
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.
Effectively dealing with professional and personal difficulties creates influence.
Those who influence the influencers, are those who influence those who have influence. In other words, to lead leaders, you must influence those who lead others. Do what you do well and lead those you lead with conviction and passion and you will find yourself leading leaders.
