Becoming the Kind of Leader You Admire - The Endless Journey …

Becoming the Kind of Leader You Admire - The Endless Journey
The process of becoming a great leader is perpetual. It is an endless journey of self-discovery. There will be successes along the way, but no failure, only feedback from which you can choose to learn and grow. Sometimes the challenges you face will seem too enormous for you, but you will benefit more from the difficult parts of your travels than the easy roads. There will never be a convenient time for you to invest in developing yourself as a leader. You may be fortunate enough to have help – a mentor, coach or guide who provides valuable advice or support in your quest to become a great leader – but no one can give you what you deny yourself. And do not wait until you are given a position of leadership. Commit today to becoming the kind of leader you admire regardless of your role or title in your organization. This module will challenge you to set goals for your leadership development that extend far into the future, clearly imagining yourself as the leader you admire and then taking steps to become more like that leader every day. As you look back on your journey from the far future you will be amazed at your progress!

  • 3. Module Description
    • The process of becoming a great leader is perpetual. It is an endless journey of self-discovery. There will be successes along the way, but no failure, only feedback from which you can choose to learn and grow. Sometimes the challenges you face will seem too enormous for you, but you will benefit more from the difficult parts of your travels than the easy roads. There will never be a convenient time for you to invest in developing yourself as a leader. You may be fortunate enough to have help – a mentor, coach or guide who provides valuable advice or support in your quest to become a great leader – but no one can give you what you deny yourself. And do not wait until you are given a position of leadership. Commit today to becoming the kind of leader you admire regardless of your role or title in your organization. This module will challenge you to set goals for your leadership development that extend far into the future, clearly imagining yourself as the leader you admire and then taking steps to become more like that leader every day. As you look back on your journey from the far future you will be amazed at your progress!

  • 5. Probability of Achieving a Goal
    • 10% if you hear an idea
    • 40% if you write down when you will do it
    • 50% if you plan how you will do it
    • 65% commit to someone else you will do it
    • 95% have a specific accountability appointment with the person you’ve committed to

  • 6. How to F.A.I.L. to Cross The Knowing-Doing Gap
    • Fear of Failure - If you're not allowed to fail you must be careful what you start!
    • Aversion to Planning - Studies have proven that, given a choice, people prefer not to plan. At the same time, we also know that planning dramatically improves results.
    • Instinct for Competition - The win-lose frame is the first assumption for many people in any situation involving another person. Fear of losing, tied to fear of failure, prevents people from even playing the game.
    • Learned Helplessness - "It's not my fault!", and "They are doing it to me" thinking. The research on this is absolutely shocking.

  • 7. Desire vs. Intention
    • Desire - - - TRY
      • to wish or long for or crave.
      • to ask for; request.
    • Intention - - - COMMIT
      • determining to do a specified thing.

  • 9. Confidence is NOT Required!
    • Confidence
      • the quality or state of being certain.
      • a state of mind or a manner marked by easy coolness and freedom from uncertainty, or embarrassment.
    • Commitment
      • an agreement or pledge to do
      • something.
      • carrying into action deliberately.

  • 10. Great Leaders are Great Optimists
    • "Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it's unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume that there's no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope. If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there's a chance you may contribute to making a better world. The choice is yours." - Noam Chomsky
