3 L’s to Leadership
Leadership is not about sitting on your perch and thinking you have made it in life. Leadership is about listening to people and their views; learning in order to continuously develop to an ever changing world, and living a life full of experiences no matter how ‘out there’ those experiences are.
Listening is something which seems quite a simple concept. But is it? How often have you switched off in a conversation? How often have you been multi-tasking while trying to listen? Listening needs your FULL attention and needs to be treated with respect in order to fully engage. Don’t switch off, switch on!
I don’t care who you are, what you have done or what job role you have there is always learning to do. If you think you know it all, you are in trouble, plus no one likes a ‘know it all’. Read books, attend events, go to workshops, sign up to a course — Stay Curious!
You have a life, so live it. Open your mind to new experiences. Put yourself out of your comfort zone once in a while. If it doesn’t scare you, don’t do it! Stay Curious!
Don’t get left behind.
