Today's blog is quick and painless. Some of you may be thinking: "That's a first!" Let me say first of all, that hurts. But I am so excited about the breathtaking beauty and simplicity of today's post that I am willing to overlook the sting of your sharp tongue.
How to put the grocery list in a place where Christy CANNOT misplace it. Sorry, that's next week. (If we don't starve to death first.)
Today we are getting down to basics. I have come to realize over the years of doing leadership that there is no magic pill to lead others. Though most in the industry have a buzz word or plug-and-play program to sell leaders, don't fall for it.
Leadership development means nothing if it doesn't apply to your situation. So today, I want to put you in the driver's seat. I want you to ask yourself a simple question.
"How am I leading my department/division/business/organization?"
Whether in our personal or professional life, it is never a bad idea to periodically pull over and reflect. Speed creates "the tyranny of the urgent." Unfortunately, most of us spend our lives in this gear. However, slowing down and pulling over gives us context. It allows us to orient ourselves to our map again to ensure that we are on the path we intended to be. Specifically, reflection often results in:
(1) Re-energizing our work.
(2) Making better decisions.
(3) Re-directing our focus.
That is the purpose of today's blog.
