What are you excited about going into 2024?

Do you have big plans this year?

Now that 2024 is here, what do you hope to accomplish as a leader?  Are you looking for more self-development success?  Or do you want to focus more on growing others?  While developing your team is crucial to becoming a great leader, you can’t forget about yourself as well.  In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some tips on both – leading yourself and others.  Enjoy.

  • Self
    • Theme.  Do you have a theme or word you live by?  Be intentional with it.
    • Phrase.  A good phrase to get you started is commitment to excellence.
    • Clarity.  Are you clear on your core values?  What are they?  Mine: Respect, Growth, Passion, and Service.
    • Your why.  What is your reason for living?  Do you have a Personal Mission Statement written out?  How often do you read it out loud to yourself?
    • Non-Negotiables.  What are your rules you live by every day?  For me, I exercise (for at least 15 minutes) every single day.
    • Personal growth.  Are you intentional with your plan?  How are you growing a little bit each day?
    • Energy.  What is your personal Wellness Plan?  Embrace it.
  • Others (your team)
    • Build relationships.  Each member of your team prefers different things.  Are you aware of how to properly praise/criticize each team member?
    • Personal relationships.  Find ways to connect with each member of your team through meetings, videos, conversations, etc.
    • Questions.  Are you asking the right questions?  Are you taking notes (mentally and physically) in your individual meetings with your team members?  Ask them how can I best support you?
    • Coach.  Do you think of yourself as both a leader and a coach?  Give your team direction by helping and assisting as best you can.
    • Team clarity.  What is the team mission?  Are the core values known (and followed) by all?  Know it, live it, and remind others of it consistently.
    • Stories.  Do you use stories to inspire your team?  Search and find ways to motivate your team through examples, it’s very powerful.
    • Role model.  Does your team view you as a role model?  If you want people to follow you, act the part.
    • Trust plan.  Do you expect others to trust you, or do you have a specific plan in place?  It’s also important to build trust amongst your team members as well.
