Since leadership is more about what we do and less about the title we hold, there is the ability to strengthen your leadership muscle. Right?
For me leadership is the ability to influence, focusing on understanding and then helping others to understand. Do you know Covey's quote, "Seek first to understand and then be understood?" This is critical as we lead!
We need to continue to challenge ourselves to listen for not only facts, but the emotion in the voice and facial expressions (Being Present). Remember, people are drawn to people they know…people they share common values with…and people they trust.
CHALLENGE: It's essential to connect with people on a personal level to influence without authority. Find out what keeps your teams up at night or what gives them energy to keep going.
