Leadership Leverage

Leadership Leverage

We’re heading into the holidays.

There’s a good chance that you and your spouse,

as a couple in leadership,

are dealing with a full calendar.

But you still have time to add some leverage…

Take a break, just for a few minutes, for three bits of leverage…


1. Lead yourself first.

The Quality of a Leader

“The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.” — Ray Kroc 

Ray Kroc joined McDonald’s in 1954 and built it into the most successful fast food operation in the world.


2. Surround yourself with wisdom.

The next best thing to being wise oneself CS Lewis

“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are.” – C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis was a novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, and Christian apologist.


3. Move forward.

We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are

 

“In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be, by remaining what we are.” ~ Max DePree

Max DePree is an American businessman (Herman Miller office furniture), leadership advocate and writer. 


It’s good to enjoy the holidays, and manage your calendar… Just ask yourself:

What standards am I setting – who am I surrounding myself with – and how am I moving myself forward?

Give yourself some leverage as you enter into 2015…
