What’s your leadership philosophy?
As leaders, we are counted on for many things. During my most recent leadership keynote in Grand Forks, ND at a leadership summit, it was made very apparent to me that each leader needs their own philosophy. What makes us unique? What is going to set our teams up for success? We must have a set of core morals and values that we abide by with both our actions and words. Below are some tips for you to help create your own leadership philosophy, but feel free to connect with me and share your own! Enjoy.
Leave a profit. One of my most important leadership values is that you should be in the mindset of; everything you touch turns to gold, not garbage. Any person or situation you interact with, aim to leave it in a better place than when you arrived.
Grow yourself. Not only should you grow yourself on a consistent basis through books, videos, and other knowledge mediums, but you should make it a priority to do so. What to get a promotion at work? Educate yourself on the industry and learn from others who have succeeded before you. How are you growing yourself?
Develop other leaders. When you are faced with a leadership challenge, you should seek to develop others into future leaders as well. When timing is right, become a mentor to someone. Help them achieve their goals. How are you developing others?
