LIMITLESS LEADERSHIP™ Insight 1
Almost 30% of respondents are only a little or somewhat open to growing and being more as a leader – why might this be? Perhaps it is you don’t see yourself in a leadership position. Conversely, 87% of respondents think it’s possible to grow learn and evolve as a leader so that’s encouraging!
How open to growth are you?
What do you have in place to make growth possible? Growth is imperative in any role and you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and embrace new learnings.
To lead people you need to minimise the managing of activity, the operational things, and jealously protect your time to develop yourself, your leadership and therefore you team and organisation. You cannot be in service to those around you if you are not adding new value, challenging the status quo and in turn creating future leaders.
- Know your strengths and areas of development
- Have a mentor and/or coach
- Seek feedback from your team, peers and upline
- Grow your knowledge through networking in and out of your industry
- Review your habits and what could be getting in the way
- Jealously protect time to grow and schedule this in
- Weigh up the cost of NOT developing to you and your team
- Evaluate your support network
Progressive versus maintenance
Think about the “progressive”” things you do at work versus the “maintenance” type things. I liken it to building a pergola at home to mowing the lawns. The former feels great and is progressive and something you don’t need to do often, the latter is usually pretty non rewarding and has to be done on a regular basis. Look at growing and learning as progressive, focus on the value you can add to your team and the benefits that follow.
What will it cost you and your team NOT to grow, learn and develop?
As always, would love your thoughts……
