When you hear the word ‘change’ does it make you think of this?
Change doesn’t have to be scary and it doesn’t have to be a battle. Effective change happens we we have a clear vision and are able to encourage and inspire people to come on board. There is a path to effective leadership and I’ve learnt it starts with looking at yourself. Determining your own values, beliefs, mindset, physical well-being, self esteem, intelligence and awareness is where you have to start in order to lead.
When we push people to do the things WE want without bringing them on board with us we become frustrated when they don’t follow. Remember the following quote;
So how do we get to this point?….Start with yourself. Identify your vision and values and consider how to bring people with you on that journey. Another key point is to always start by listening. What do your team value? What’s their vision?
Also determine WHY something is important to you. We often give people the ‘what’ and ‘how’ we do things but often we forget to discuss the ‘why’ we do it. When you appeal to the emotive part of a person’s brain, you really start to connect with that person.
Bring your teams on the journey with you, the results will amaze you all.
