America needs all the right kind of leadership possible right now.
There is a necessity for great leaderships in all aspect of society.
Some one who has the skills for being a collaborator, team player, innovator, & emotionally intelligent individual.
There are small intangible habits of creating a high performing leader.
Becoming a high performing leader starts with committing to these three habits on a daily basis.
SIGNIFICANCE: This list of three was posted on the Inc Magazine site two years ago.
[Here are the THREE for THEE]
1. Create and stick to a personal philosophy.
Your personal philosophy helps calibrate an identity for the type of leader you’re becoming. What follows afterward is crystal-clear clarity which makes you more effective in your daily decision making. Your team along with others will respect and rave about you more because you’re consistent with your actions and what you stand for.
To get started with creating your personal philosophy, start with the end in mind and then reverse engineer the process. Jot down the type of leader you need to become in order to attain the type of success that you want.
Next, ruthlessly assess yourself and see how you currently stand up to that end goal character. Once you identify the gaps in characters, immediately take action to bridge the gap between who you currently are and who you’re becoming.
2. Equip yourself with a playbook to stay mentally and emotionally strong.
As a leader seeking high performance, your mindset and emotions will either propel you to success or serve as your anchor to not getting the results you desire. Stress, pressure, uncomfortable situations, and even toxic language is, unfortunately, a part of daily life.
There’s no avoiding that.
A couple scenarios to prepare for could be a big proposal being rejected, falling short of revenue goals, firing an employee, or handling personal relationships that could wear on you.
3. Focus on growth and recovery.
I see far too often, high achieving individuals pushing themselves for maximum growth and expansion in their particular endeavors. While this is necessary and expected, what is also necessary is a proper allotment toward recovery.
As hard as you hustle and work, the same amount of effort and intensity needs to be applied to your recovery. When you neglect recovery, your leadership abilities along with your emotional intelligence declines across the board due to numerous factors such as sleep and unmanaged stress.
When you think of recovery, expand your thinking beyond merely sleeping at night. Recovery is a 24-hour activity that has precise and timely activities integrated into your busy workday.
Activities such as meditation and letting your mind aimlessly wander pays huge dividends when it comes to your emotional and mental well being which translates to a higher quality of leadership.
