Day 21 – Leadership… a few final words…

Leadership can be really tough. It’s not always easy to motivate people who aren’t interested or to work with people you don’t like. Despite these outside circumstances though, Here’s a brief recap of some of the principles discussed throughout the recent Leadership Series…

1. Don’t reinvent the wheel

Day 4Day 5Day 6Day 12 – Day 14Day 15

There are experts and mentors out there that we can learn from! So do it! Don’t allow your pride and “do it yourself” attitude to keep you from continuing to learn. If you get stuck somewhere along the line, ask for help. Leadership is not a solo act so lean on others when necessary. Don’t start from scratch when there are great resources out there to help!

Some book recommendations

     a) 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

     b) Strengths Finder 2.0

     c) The Traveler’s Gift

     d) The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

Some website recommendations:

     John Maxwell on Leadership

     Jim Collins

     Coach Wooden

2. Strike a pose

Day 2

Well, strike a balance really, but strike a pose just sounds cooler. As a leader you’re juggling tasks and relationships. I prefer to be led by someone who is more focused on relationships because not only do I feel cared for, but I also feel more motivated getting the tasks completed for someone I respect (and who I know respects me). The work needs to get done; that goes without saying. But not at the expense of the people.

3. Be a team

Day 7Day 8Day 9

Remember how those Titan boys brought the whole town together with their inspiring teamwork? And Charlie’s Angels were there for each other, protecting one another from all things evil in the world?! Well, we can be that for each other too! (So to speak). When a group of individuals come together, each person is strengthened. There is something powerful about a team coming together to reach a common goal. Don’t go rogue! Surround yourself with like-minded people and see how you fuel each other’s passions and the goal suddenly feels more and more within reach.

4. Don’t quit!!!

Day 16Day 17

Some of the world’s most successful people, failed before they succeeded. Let their stories inspire you to stay focused and keep moving forward toward the finish line!

5. Be a visionary

Day 13

It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams. – Les Brown
