Key Leadership Points

9 Aug

StressFree

It’s been my experience good leaders place such high levels of pressure on themselves. I consistently place pressure on myself to be a better leader and a better person. This focuses my efforts and provides a source of intrinsic motivation far beyond any extrinsic pressure others could ever exert upon me.

Here are four things I do to make myself a better leader:

  1. Know Me:

Leaders must know themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and where they will and won’t compromise. When a leader is comfortable in their own skin they won’t fear dissenting opinion and diversity of thought, they’ll encourage it.

     2.   Lead:

A leader’s job is to acquire and develop talent. I love seeing “my” people succeeding

    3.   Keep It Simple:

Complexity creates pressure. The best leaders look to simplify everything they can. Simplicity creates a whole lot of solutions to other potential problems.

   4.  Whitespace

The best way to maintain focus is to make sure you’ve baked-in some whitespace into EVERY day. Take time out. This gives a better picture of your environment.

Do you have any secrets that make you a great leader?
