This week’s theme: Intentional Leadership
What motivates you every day? What wakes you up in the morning with passion and great excitement? Whether you like it or not, these things lead you, whether it’s to an anticipated promotion or just a cup of your favorite coffee. To be led is to be persuaded to act because you are influenced. You can feel the impact it gives you. This ritual of excitement may not come regularly, that’s why this is where intentional leadership dives in.
You can’t expect to become the best leader overnight. The ability to lead is not a characteristic that comes all at once. It’s something that’s developed over time and it progresses in stages. You’ve got to love change, you’ve got to embrace differences. Mean whatever you say. And have specific ways that you interact with your people to help them grow and produce. At the end of the day, it all boils down to being an intentional leader.
