Pride Destroys Leadership

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.

Lisa and I both agree that our leadership failures have always had one thing in common: pride. 

After almost 15 years of coaching executives I’ve discovered that we’re not alone. Every leader I know confesses their own failures stemmed from moments where pride got the best of them. Pride doesn’t hinder leadership. It destroys it. 

Be well. Do good. Grow great!

Don't Be Like Eeyore

Don’t Be Like Eeyore

They’re always down and out. They complain incessantly. They’re adept at seeing the dark side of every challenge. Or opportunity.

You don’t dare ask them how they’re doing because they’ll tell you.

Complaining is their main source of vibrancy.

Eeyore wasn’t a leader. That behavior won’t help us become leaders either.

Great Leaders Know It's Hard, But Worth It

Great Leaders Know It’s Hard, But Worth It

“It shouldn’t be this hard,” said the young bride speaking about her first year of married life.

“What makes you think so?” I asked.

“Because we’re in love.”

Whether it’s love, life or work…many people are confused about how much work is required to achieve greatness. It’s hard, but it’s worth it.

Where's Your Focus?

Where’s Your Focus?

YouTube player

 

“You get what you inspect.”  – a trite management maxim

“You get what you expect.” – a slightly less trite maxim

“You see where you focus.” – the topic of today’s show

Ask yourself these questions:

a. What am I constantly looking at?

b. What am I constantly looking for?

c. Why?

Optimism pays off in helping us look for opportunities. Especially in the midst of great adversity.

Pessimism pays off in preventing us from seeing opportunities because we’re focused on the problems.

Great leadership requires practicing intentional focus on the elements necessary for high performance. You can choose to look at whatever you’d like. Just be aware you’ll see what you’re looking for (at).

Great Leaders Can Make It Simple

Great Leaders Can Make It Simple

YouTube player

 

People love to use business or industry jargon. And many of us enjoy hearing ourselves. Is it helpful in stating and solving problems? Does it help us seize opportunities better?

Simplify Your Way To Better Solutions – putting in the work to be succinct in stating a problem clearly in the simplest terms to get to the crux of the matter

But we have a long, laborious story that we think is needed so folks can understand. We couch it as “context.”

Few things can propel us forward in our leadership journey as much as our ability to simplify things and get to the heart of things.
