At some point in your life, someone saw your potential. They invested in you, whether it was time, money or both. To be a leader….you must do the same. You know an up and coming leader or business person when you see them. Invest in them and continue the leadership dream. Take the time to create leaders by being a leader!
“Mission first, People Always” ~ CSM Gene Maske

“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.” ~ Bruce Lee
For those that refuse to remember their history….will not learn from the wins and more importantly the mistakes that you made. Learn from your mistakes to make the future better and help teach the future leaders to not make the same mistakes. Pay it forward in your own way.
Take the time to learn as much about every job in your organization. Not that you will be doing them….rather gain a better understanding of what it takes, and what your staff go thru to make things work.
Listening is a skill, we all want our ideas and thoughts to be heard. Take time to listen to those around around you. Just because your in charge does not always mean you have the best idea.
Just because you are in charge, or in a leadership role….does not mean everyone will follow. You have to inspire confidence in your vision and gain trust.
“Leadership is the ability to guide others without force into a direction or decision that leaves them still feeling empowered and accomplished.” – Lisa Cash Hanson, CEO
Learn something new each day, no matter if you find it on your own, or discover it from someone else or an experience. You will find that knowledge is everywhere….take advantage of it.
