One of the core characteristics of leadership is self-awareness, or the ability to know and put an accurate name to what you are thinking, feeling, and believing in the moment. Those beliefs will and do impact how you show up to others.
Having a professionally trained coach during this time of COVID-19 related challenges gives leaders the tools they need to remain open and meet life face-to-face.
The process of hiring and succession planning can’t be short cut if you want quality. Predicting who best fits your organization’s needs is both art AND science.
COVID-19 presents challenges to our sense of certainty, autonomy and relatedness. Leaders have a critical role in keeping their organizations focused and functioning.
As a CEO and leader, you must be personally aligned before you can expect your team to be aligned. Here are four ways to ensure personal alignment.
When leaders fail to fully understand the deliverables of their level of leadership, organizations are over managed but under led. Fulfilling the role and responsibilities of leadership requires “Leveling Up,” or thinking and acting more strategically.
You’ve likely heard about the pitfalls of “staying the same” and falling behind. But have you thought about how that applies to you specifically? Remember that you are the one in charge of your future and personal brand, and sometimes you need to take a risk or a step backwards to achieve the goal that you have in mind.
There are behavioral tendencies and expectations which influence who we believe will make a good leader. We expect good leaders to be both confident and competent. Make sure you take the time to distinguish between real competence and faux confidence.
Appreciation, and valuing people for the human that they are, is not only good for the workplace, it’s good for society.
My best thinking on the problem my team and I have sought to solve, and the change we seek to make as coaches is this: we help leaders to make their leadership matter in a constructive way.
