Great leadership starts with self-leadership and great leaders make self-improvement a daily practice.
Here are 8 Top Tips from Lolly Daskal, to incorporate into your DAILY routine, to help you be a better leader and a better person:
- Assess Yourself Honestly: In order to improve, you need to know what needs improvement. Notice how you behave in different situations. Look at your behavior and attitudes objectively and you’ll know what to keep and what to leave behind. You can’t be a better person if you don’t know what you need.
- Educate Yourself Continually: Unsurprisingly, many leaders are avid readers. There is so much to learn and so much to understand, and reading a book is like having the best teachers and the smartest mentors from throughout history on demand.
- Welcome Feedback Approvingly: The best leaders understand that feedback is a gift, and they seek critique from trusted people who are able to get straight to the point. Direct feedback is the quickest way to learn how to improve.
- Embrace Change Repeatedly: Great leaders always want to improve themselves, so they remain open to change. They know it’s hard to move forward if you aren’t willing to change. Cultivate your own willingness to change with thought, effort, and intentionality.
- Work Toward Your Goals Daily: The best leaders understand the power of consistently working toward a goal. If you can commit to one daily practice, make it this: do one small thing every day that will get you a little bit closer to where you want to go. Every time you accomplish a goal, you’ll learn more about yourself and figure out more ways of self-improvement.
- Ask For Support Frequently: Top leaders know the benefits of having good counsel and smart advocates. The most successful and consistent leaders have a coach. Who is yours? Leaders value coaching, even if it's simply having an impartial sounding board, giving you a chance to sort things out before you present your ideas. They also value being able to re-map their emotional triggers for performance under pressure!
- Express Appreciation Regularly: Great leaders understand that gratitude is the basis of self-improvement. They know that if you can be thankful and appreciate what you have instead of obsessing over what you wish you had, you can focus on making yourself better and expressing your thanks to the people around you.
- Lead From Within: In leadership, it’s not as much about who you used to be as it is about who you choose to become.
