Making Progress as a Leader: 20 ideas
When I started out on this Leadership journey 10+ years ago I was letting my environment and manager influence and teach me what I needed to know.
The problem was, the environment wasn’t exceptional and neither was the manager.
But I thought I knew a lot.
The reality is, I was very naive at the time.
Where it changed is when I began to take ownership and got very intentional.
Your progress has to be your own responsibility.
You can learn so much more by coming off the bench and onto the playing field.
Asking questions, driving changes, creating ideas, reading material and putting your hand up for opportunities.
20 ideas to help your grow:
1/ Wake up Early - Leaders get ahead of the game. They turn up to training early and ensure they’re prepared for the session. If you arrive at the same time as everyone else you’re already behind.
2/ Read daily - a book, a blog or listen to a podcast. Something stimulating that will feed your mind with positive thoughts, inspiration and ideas.
3/ Plan - plan ahead. Line up your next steps for tomorrow, today. When you plan and think ahead you begin to move from being reactive to proactive, moving from solving problems to preventing problems.
