Achieve Greatness with The 3 Stages of Leadership
The success or failure of an organization is determined by the effectiveness of its leader.
Effective leaders are so invaluable that many companies, sport teams and organizations pay millions of dollars to attract them. How often have we seen team members acknowledge their leader for their success? On the other hand, how many times have ineffective leaders been blamed for the failure of their organization?
So how do we develop our leadership skills so we can make our organization, community and world a better place? Take these three steps to develop your leadership skills:
Lead Yourself First
Effective leaders take care of their own back yard before leading others. They have a vision and mission for their life, have established SMART personal goals and firmly understand and live by their core values. They live a balanced life, continually work on self improvement and take care of themselves physically.
With well grounded self awareness effective leaders excel at communicating with others. They understand the motivations and communication styles of their team members. Effective leaders support their team to help them achieve success but are firm in holding individuals accountable. They take responsibility for their own actions, are honest with others and follow through with their own commitments.
Lead Your Organization
With a firm understanding of yourself and with your team members ready to achieve greatness you are now ready to lead your organization. Develop and continually communicate your organization’s Mission, Vision and Values. Develop a strategic plan and business plan, work on your business, not in it, hold regular meetings to keep everyone on track and adjust as necessary.
