The Eyes of a Focused Leader

The Coates Perspective for May 22, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
The Eyes of a Focused Leader

I am savvy enough to know that the marketplace is unpredictable at times, filled with ups and downs. Sometimes, in order to go further, one needs to go backward in order to gain a clearer perspective. Like a new pair of eyeglasses, the corrective lenses of focused leadership help me see things at a distance, better.
 
There have been some leaders who have ridden the crest of “the latest, greatest idea” business wave only to wipe out when a bigger wave swallowed them. I seek to tell my clients to enjoy the ride but always be on the lookout for the unpredictable customer and the uncertain economic trends. You can’t prepare for everything, but I believe you can prepare for most things—if you stay focused.
 
So, what is the key to having the eyes of a focused leader?
 
1.     Get some direction. It was Zig Ziglar who reminded us that a “Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”

2.     Get ahead of the latest trends. Never be satisfied with status quo growth.

3.     Get going. Lead like you know where you are going because you have the eyes of a focused leader.
 
If you need help working through the process consider using the resources at Coates and Associates, Inc. We would consider it an honor to visit with you about developing a process forward.
