When learning to lead, many leaders make the assumption they must learn the skills in order to lead others, to go out and improve, and to fix and evaluate their teams. While those skills hold much value, the first step--and the most important--is learning to lead yourself well, first! It will be the first and most difficult step in your leadership journey. Leading oneself well involves reflecting upon and providing clarity around the answers to six key questions:
- How big is your tool box?
- What is your motto in life? (Things in life do not happen to you; they happen because of you.)
- Are you future focused? (Is your goal to become comfortable?)
- Will you accept "average" and "normal"?
- Who are your friends, and what do they say about you?
- Are you in the bucket or out of the bucket?
In our session together, we will examine these six questions and, in addition, address the factors which keep us from taking that important "first step."
