Are you a CEO? Run a home-based business? Run a home? Do you chair fundraisers?
Are you a parent? A volunteer? An event organizer? A caregiver? A coach?
Do you train others? Are you a teacher? A mentor? A friend?
Do you give reviews of restaurants or movies to friends and family? Do people ask you for advice?
You are a leader.
Whether that's how you view yourself, or not, that's how others see you. Here's the great part- you get to choose what kind of leader you want to be! Will you be demanding? Stand-offish? "Above" others? Center-focused? Stressed? Stuck in the past? Stick in the mud (or a stick anywhere else!)? Cranky? Ungrateful?
Or will you be open? Informed? Relevant? Personal? Audience focused? Team oriented? Enthusiastic? Genuine? Consistent? Will people want to work toward common goals with you?
Over the next several posts, I will ask lots of questions to help you focus on some of the areas where you may not be projecting the image that will net you the results you want. I hope to be frank and practical about the information you read here.
If you love what you do, and consistently get the results you want... yay! I would love to have you share some of your "aha" moments to help the rest of us. Maybe you're looking to "turn it up a notch". I like to look at things from a cost/benefit view. If this blog only takes a couple minutes to read, and you increase your production, then it has value.
