Success Formula - Leadership

  1. 1. The Success Formula
  2. 2. The combination of DESIRE, EFFORT, PLANNING and PERSEVERANCE always work their magic. It’s not a matter of whether the formula works for a person, it’s a matter of whether a person works the system!
  3. 3. Desire •Start with Why •Conscious/Sub-conscious mind •Vision •Mission minded •Others centric or self-centered? •Belief – Yours or others? •Excellence
  4. 4. Effort •Personal & Professional Development •Growth & Change •Activity •New Habits/Reprogramming •Discipline vs. Neglect •Leadership Development •Your Potential-Acorn
  5. 5. Effort •Your Philosophy •Your Attitude •Entitled •Value Driven •Coasting •Your Actions •Your Results
  6. 6. Planning •Goals (activity) •Choice vs. Instinct •Bad Habits •Reprogramming •5 Year Plan •Weekly Activity Tracking •Accountability
  7. 7. What to Stop Doing?
  8. 8. Perseverance •Stick & Stay •The Grass isn’t always Greener •Don’t Quit •Mining for Gold •Marathon not a Sprint
  9. 9. Leading vs. Managing
  10. 10. Management - Focus on Work - Task focused - Authority from company - Has subordinates that do as they are told - Positional & Transactional - Get things done within constraints of time & money What’s the Difference? – Short List Leadership - Focus on people - Requires followers, not employees - Seeks vision - Gives credit instead of takes credit - Transforms instead of transacts - Permission based
  11. 11. Leadership and Management are not mutually exclusive terms as there are many similarities and dependencies. They are somewhat symbiotic. How do we apply characteristics of each to our current role?
  12. 12. First we must ”Self-Assess” Are you the best leader you can be?
  13. 13. 1. Why do I want to be a leader? 2. What are my goals for leading others? 3. What am I doing to become a better leader? 4. Am I others-centric or self-centered? 5. What is my style of leadership? 6. What is my current level of leadership? (5 Levels of Leadership) Leadership – Self Assessment
  14. 14. 7. What are some of the challenges I face as a leader? 8. What are the outcomes I desire in leading others? 9. Do I treat my team as subordinates or followers? 10. Am I worthy of being followed? 11. Would I follow me? 12. Who is my role model as a leader?
  15. 15. Don’t rely just on your own perspective, but get an accountability partner to be real with you and provide support and encouragement as you strive to be a better leader.
  16. 16. Directing – high direction, low support Coaching – high direction, high support Supporting – high support, low direction Delegating – low support, low direction Four Leadership Styles
  17. 17. He who is GREATEST among you shall be your SERVANT. And whoever EXALTS himself will be HUMBLED, and he who HUMBLES himself will be EXALTED. Matthew 23:11-12 (NKJV)
  18. 18. Effective leadership starts on the inside. Are you a servant leader or a self-serving leader? When our HEARTS, HEADS, HANDS and HABITS are aligned, extraordinary levels of LOYALTY, TRUST, and PRODUCTIVITY will result.
  19. 19. What are your GOALS for Leadership/Leading? 1. Leading yourself? 2. Leading your family? 3. Leading others? 4. Leading in your community? 5. Leading in your church? 6. Leading in your business?
  20. 20. Leadership Goals?
  21. 21. The key to becoming an effective leader is not to focus on making other people follow you, but on making yourself the kind of person they want to follow! You must prepare yourself to become a leader because there will be challenges.
  22. 22. A different approach to your leadership development may be required to become the leader you desire! • Let go of your EGO! • Build positive relationships based on trust and value. • Work with EXCELLENCE • Rely on DISCIPLINE, not EMOTION. • Make adding VALUE your goal. • Give your power away.
  23. 23. We set young leaders up to FALL if we encourage them to envision what they can do before they consider the kind of person they should be. - R. Ruth Barton
  24. 24. 1. Understand the 7 Pillars of Leadership 2. Read the books! 3. Pray for focus and insight each time you read 4. As you encounter “Aha!” moments that challenge your leadership behaviors and motives, stop and ask yourself how you can realign your leadership immediately. 5. Keep a journal of your “Aha!” ideas and action steps 6. Review your progress regularly Action Steps
  25. 25. A leader is one who KNOWS the way, GOES the way, and SHOWS the way. John Maxwell
