I thought a rare ‘Throw Back Thursday Leadership Tip’ would be acceptable to my followers … I first wrote this tip in 2011, so it will be new to many and a good reminder for those long time receivers of my leadership tips.
In the past, you’ve either heard me say or read something from me that states you can always learn from others … good or bad.
This week we learn something good from the 6th President of the United State, John Quincy Adams.
He said at some point in the 1800’s … “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
So how do you rate yourself as a leader on John Quincy Adams definition of a leader?
My leadership tip for you this week is to pay attention to your actions towards others.
Ask yourself, do my actions:
- Inspire others to dream more?
- Inspire others to learn more?
- Inspire others to do more?
- Inspire others to become more?
Always remember, as the leader everyone is looking to you for direction. They will always follow your lead if your direction is sound and your actions inspire them to achieve the short list above … applicable at work and at home!
