I want to share 6 things that I focus on daily, having learnt this through my own experience and from other successful leaders: ⠀ —⠀ 1. When you have reached a senior level of leadership – it’s about your ability to serve others and this can’t be accomplished unless you genuinely enjoy what you do. I enjoy my work and truly appreciate the people I work with. ⠀ —⠀ 2. Being my authentic self helps me to be aligned in my thoughts, words and actions. I bring my true self to work every day. I try and improve myself rather than be a perfect replica of someone else. ⠀ — ⠀ 3. Successful leaders bring an attitude that motivates their colleagues to take action. They don’t allow failures to disrupt momentum. As a leader, I am always looking for new and creative ways to bring a positive vibe, great energy and an awesome “gees” in my team environment. ⠀ — ⠀ 4. Successful leaders never stop teaching because they are so self-motivated to learn themselves. They use teaching to keep their colleagues well-informed and knowledgeable through statistics, trends, and other newsworthy items. I am a firm believer in lifelong learning, and in learning from each person and day-to-day experiences. ⠀ — ⠀ 5. Successful leaders have a deep thirst for knowledge and constantly are on the look-out to learn new things because of their commitment to making themselves better through the wisdom of others. My travels across our beloved continent give me a totally different lens and add to my knowledge and experience. ⠀ —⠀ 6. Successful leaders don’t focus on protecting their domain – instead, they expand it by investing in mutually beneficial relationships. Not only for their own advancement but that of others.⠀ —⠀ People quickly see when relationships are superficial, and respond much better when you build deep, genuine mutually beneficial relationships with them. I have benefited greatly from these lifelong relationships. ⠀ —⠀ What other tips can you share for other young leaders to benefit from? ⠀ —⠀ #leadershipconversations #questionsandanswers #lifelessonslearned #actiontaker #liveforyou #selfmastery #findingyourself #wisewordsofwisdom #authenticleadership #itsyourtime
