Effective Leadership Begins With Self-Care

I am in the kind of business where I give a lot of myself (willingly, I might add) to my clients. I love teaching principles that I have lived out and impart what I’ve learned to others. I give, and give and give . . . and if I’m not careful I’ll give out of emotional and mental energy if I allow my own tank to run dry. I need to pace myself so there will be enough of me to go around.

The Sacrifice That Every Leader Must Make

If you are going to succeed as a leader, then you are going to have to make the daily commitment to opt out of the rat race by sacrificing the rat.

You are going to have to be willing to take a balanced approach to life.

You are going to have to be okay with imperfection because no one (including yourself and your competition) is perfect.

You are going to have to take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

Making Time for You (Part 1)

As I work with corporate leaders I have discovered that many leaders are consumed with an intense amount of work-related pressure. Some have labeled this pressure as “the rat race.” There is only one winner in the rat race. The rat. It was comedian Lily Tomlin who remarked,The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.”Who wants to be the rat?

Apparently, there are lots of leaders who are willing to experience burnout in order to gain the prize.

The Key to Good Communication is Effort

The Key to Good Communication is Effort
 
Life is an investment. What you put into it is what you will get out of it. The same principle is also true about good communication. If you put some effort in it, you will often get something good from it. What separates good communicators from those who wish they could communicate is effort.

It was Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton who once said;“From this day forward, I solemnly promise and declare that every time a customer comes within ten feet of me, I will smile, look him in the eye, and greet him.
