You, the leader coach.

As a leader, we have many responsibilities and wear several hats. The best way to build the business is to help people, mainly your key people grow. You may have seen or heard me say PEOPLE GROWTH = BUSINESS GROWTH, and LACK OF PEOPLE GROWTH =BUSINESS IN DECAY. How about this thought—what is worse, investing in and developing people, and they leave? Or, not develop them, and they stay? I have learned that coaching begins by seeing greatness in people and helping them discover it. I love this quote from German writer Goethe, "Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of being." Your belief in people will [...]

The destination disease. 

Destination disease is such a strong phrase that John Maxwell coined.  As a leader, we need to avoid this disease at all costs. The consequences are not good. So, what is destination disease, you ask? It is when you believe you have arrived, have all the answers, are at the top, and have success in your pocket. As a result, the tendency is to stop growing, stop learning, and stop pushing to acquire new skills and knowledge. It is not hard to be content, especially at the top. You have the influence and respect of your people. Here is what I know to be true when you are through learning, YOU ARE THROUGH. That's it, plain and simple. The bottom [...]

What is your standard? 

As a leader, we all have standards. What is acceptable performance? What will you not tolerate? We all want to rise to the next level, and we expect that of our team. So I have a question for all of us, myself included, do you have a standard of excellence? Webster's New World Dictionary defined excellence as "superiority." Superiority begins and ends with you, the leader. You must expect excellence from yourself, live it out and be an example for others. Co-Founder of Ritz-Carlton Hotel Co. Horst Schulze authored the book, "Excellence Wins." If you have ever stayed at a Ritz-Carlton, you will experience excellence from the moment you walk in the door (or when you book your stay). Allow [...]

The foundation of trust. I have come to believe at the core of your leadership is trust. Isn’t trust at the heart of any relationship? And leadership is about the relationship between you and the people you choose to lead. As leaders, we build respect by showing respect; this can be the bridge that leads to trust. Below are some factors necessary for building a trusting relationship. Integrity: Knowing the right thing to do and always doing the right thing. Dependable: Being consistent, walking the walk, and always being predictable. Approachable: Your people need to know you are there for them. Competence: Your people know you strive for excellence and are committed to learning and growing. Openness/vulnerable: You are willing [...]

What is your Why?

Remember, people are not attracted to what you do but to why you do what you do. This simple tool is designed to help you find clarity and put in writing the two essential components of your Why. First, it answers the question of your contribution and who will benefit. Second, it answers the question of the impact and how it will help. Your Why is the belief that drives the decision. It is that sense of purpose, a clear idea of why you come to work every day and do what you do, why your business exists. Your Why is the foundation upon which you build yourself, your business and others you choose to work with. Here is an example, and it happens to [...]
