Motivational Monday…leadership

Today was already Motivational.  I listened to a call from one of my business leaders, and she had some great insight from The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.  I have not read the book, but have it here to start tonight.  I was glad to hear that I do some of the things she mentioned already and will go over a few points here.

  1. I place the blame on myself if things go wrong.  That has been my way of thinking since I led a team at my school and was head of our Effective Schoolwide Discipline program.  If things started to unravel, I knew it was up to me to get them “sewn” back together.
  2. I think proactively, and try to encourage others to do so.  I do not wait for others to contact me.  I hope you all understand that I don’t think it’s wrong to lead this way.  I don’t want to leave you out there hanging.  I want to encourage you as much as I can in the beginning, then when you get to know me, and understand my style, you feel less timid about asking me a question.
  3. I like to chunk goals.  If you have little goals, they are easier to reach.  But that being said, I do like to see the whole picture.  However, I was recently on a call where they tried to explain the end result, and I was like, whoa.  That looks huge.  Back to baby steps.
  4. The relationship with the person is very important to me.  I would like to know your why.  What motivates you to reach the next goal.  What keeps you a float when you think you could sink?  I have the life vests ready.  Just let me know!!
  5. New habits are also very important.  I learn something new every single day.  No matter how long I have been doing a “thing” or a “job”, I learn something new all the time.  I am like a sponge.  I want to soak up the knowledge of those around me making things happen.  The people I admire who attain the next level.  The beauty of it is…they are still learning too!!
