Leadershift is an ability and willingness to make a leadership change that will positively enhance organizational and personal growth.
Bruna Martinuzzi states “the top three leadership qualities that will be important in the years ahead: “the ability to motivate staff (35 percent); the ability to work well across cultures (34 percent); and the ability to facilitate change (32 percent).”
ARE YOU READY TO SHIFT AS A LEADER?
How open are you to change?
Are you willing to start asking more questions instead of giving more answers?
Are you willing to become a better listener, a better observer?
HOW TO LEADERSHIFT:
1. Continually Learn, Unlearn, and Relearn.
When was the last time you stopped using a proven method to risk discovering a better method?
2. Value Yesterday but Live in Today.
“People may honor you for what you did yesterday, but they respect you for what you’re doing now.”
What are you doing today that will increase others’ respect of you?
3. Rely on Speed but Thrive on Timing.
Can you think of a time when you missed the mark?
What can you do today that will result in you seeing the moments so you can seize the moments?
4. See the Big Picture as The Picture Keeps Getting Bigger.
What are you doing today that demonstrates you are fencing in and not fencing out?
5. Live in Today but Think About Tomorrow.
“When you become aware of what you need or want, you’re better able to see it—and attract it.”
What can you do today to ensure you have what you need to lead tomorrow?
When you know who you are and you know what you want, you then know the kind of people you will attract, and the things you will discover. Your mind will think things that will help you get what you want. Your eyes will see things that will help you get what you want. Your heart will feel things that will help you get what you want. Your attitude will believe things that will help you get what you want. Your mouth will say things that will help you get what you want. Your actions will attract things that will help you get what you want.
What are you attracting?
