23 Feb My Biggest Leadership Transformations
EPISODE SHOW NOTES
Everyone wants to increase their income, extend their influence, upgrade their lifestyle, and build a meaningful legacy. The best way to accomplish all that is to become an excellent leader. Be a leader in whatever industry, profession, or business you engage in and you’ll improve just about every aspect of your life, including your personal happiness and your ability to uplift others.
But what does it really mean to be a leader?
And what does it take to be an excellent one?
Leadership means more than getting things done. That is why not all managers are leaders. Leadership is not about titles, positions, or hierarchies. Nor is it about seniority or the ability to tell people what to do all the time. These misconceptions cause many old-school CEOs to fail at connecting with ambitious millennials, especially at a time when business landscapes are radically shifting.
Like everything else, there are a lot of myths and falsehoods surrounding leadership and it is critical to reject the shackling mindset behind these myths. More importantly, it is critical to your success to discover and embrace the core principles of leadership.
In this podcast, I’ll walk you through common misconceptions about leadership and give you some tactical approaches you can take to become a good leader. No, there’s no magic spell that instantly turns you into a world class leader. It takes a daily commitment to take the path to leadership. It is a journey that will impact how you spend your time, set goals, plan your day, judge value, and train your skills.
Be warned, this is not a journey for the weak. But if you persist, the results will be life-changing.
