Key Leadership Takeaways:

  • Anyone can be a leader when they learn to lead from within
  • Understanding yourself is the beginning of influence. You must understand you before you can possibly understand others and how to influence them
  • Most of us rely on what we know and expect it to be sustainable, but if we are not changing, evolving, and growing, we are not going to remain successful leaders,

Leader Action Plan:

  • Stop comparing yourself to others and focus on your own improvement
  • Avoid focusing on your failures rather than your successes, make a list of your accomplishments and place your wins in plain sight so you are reminded of them regularly
  • Remind yourself that perfection is unattainable and aiming for it sets you up for continual frustration and disappointment
