Be the leader you had

Think of who you are and where you come from. Now, think about how you got here. Who helped you along the way?

All of us have someone. I certainly do. That person, or persons, who marked a defining part of our life. They made a mark or impression on you that forever changed who you were as a person and your outlook on life.

Be that person…

Those you lead are looking for their someone, knowingly or unknowingly, to mark their journey. Be available. Be honest. Be approachable. BE that influencer.

You want to be a great leader? Be the great leader you had.

Be Honest With Those You Lead

Having the trust and loyalty of a team comes with sacrifice and accountability as a leader. Own up to mistakes you’ve made and learn from them. Those who follow you respect honesty. Poor leaders will deflect in times of famine and take credit in times of feast. Own your team’s performance during good times and in bad, and your team will respect you for it. So today, own your team. Show them you have their back even when numbers are down. Show them that you’re their real leader.
