Today marks the arrival of the critical and last installment of this seven-part challenge. Industries across the board and governments are all experiencing a leadership and trust crisis. The following list of eight powerful ingredients can help you change this, where you will differentiate yourself, lead more effectively and your purpose will reach new heights.
1️⃣ Examine Who is Around You; Surround yourself with smart, honourable, and driven individuals who challenge you to excel. A strong team and network fuels not only your success but the success of others too. Avoid toxic people and do not speak badly about others.
2️⃣ Focus on Service: Do not focus on what you want, focus on how you can serve and what you can give. True leaders thrive on how they can contribute and make a positive impact.
3️⃣ Conquer Yourself from Within: Face your inner demons, guilt, and shame head-on. Stop lying in every aspect of your life, be wise and smart about your decisions , this will help you sleep better at night. Know other people’s weaknesses and use honesty as the bedrock to build trust and a strong leadership brand.
4️⃣ Inspire Through Character & Trust: Lead with the power of inspiration, innovation, and trust. Cultivate desirable conduct, goodwill, and quality of character. Do not rule by fear or intimidation. It is never too late to change.
5️⃣ Clear Purpose: Define your purpose and set clear actionable goals – 3-year, 1-year, monthly, weekly, and today. Know your direction for the long-term and each step along the way.
6️⃣ Embrace Challenges: Challenges and responsibilities are opportunities for growth. Confront them head-on, for they shape your character and resilience.
7️⃣ Harness Your Personal Power: Differentiate between what you can and cannot control. Focus your energy on the things within your power and harness your influence effectively.
Extra Ingredient: How You’re Judged: Remember it doesn't matter how much wealth, status or what your title is, what others judge you on is how you took care of them and how you respected and treated them. Even when they or you behaved badly.
The final challenge is the beginning of your greatest triumphs. Embrace it with enthusiasm and unwavering determination. We hope you enjoyed this journey of discovery, leadership and business growth.
Keep inspiring and keep making a positive impact!
