Develop your leadership. Great ideas for great leadership
Do you want to develop your leadership? How about lead a better life for yourself? Do you want to have more fun?
Get focussed in this age of distraction
This is the age of distraction, don’t spend your best days on this planet doing what is unnecessary. Many people spend their lives believing that it is too risky to grow, that it is too risky to change and they stay indoors and watch TV instead of getting out there and developing their potential.
We were all born to genius, we resign to mediocrity. We medicate ourselves with spending too much time busy being busy working, watching TV, playing computer games, avoiding our responsibility that we have to go and search out our destiny.
JK Rowling said
Anything is possible if you have got enough nerve.
Peter Drucker also said
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
How do you expand your personal limits? You go to them. You go to them, you push them and this will take you to another level. This is exactly what we do on our leadership training, we take you to your limits, challenge you.
Deliver 10x Profit to your customers
Talking about another level and a challenge, how about making it your mission to give your customers more value than they ever thought possible. Forget making it worth their while, how about giving them 5x or even 10x value from your product or service?
Leadership is what you do when no-one is watching. When no-one was watching Joey Dunlop, the Irish Motorcycle champion, got in his van and took food to hungry orphans in Romania. Sadly Joey died and his acts of courage and compassion for others were celebrated by 50,000 people at his funeral.
You will be dust one day, and the cleaner will be laid to rest next to the chief executive. How much of your destiny did you realise? What difference did you make to your business? your colleagues and your customers?
Profit is a scorecard to show you how much good you are doing for other people.
Develop your dream
Develop a dream, an obsession, call it what you will. Remember that if you aren’t being laughed at, if you aren’t being ridiculed, then you probably aren’t living your dream. Think. What is it that you would be willing to die for? That believe it or not is your greatest possibility.
Confront your saboteur
We each have this saboteur inside, a deeper emotional side to us that makes us afraid. When we are near to getting what we want this saboteur appears and what we end up with is fear. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of not being good enough, fear of the unknown. Our saboteur says, “be like everyone else.” We sit in our comfort zone and then when we attempt to leave it your reptilian brain comes out and tells us “no.” When you were a kid people used to say to you “you can’t have that toy.” You learn that it is wrong to have what you want.
Stress comes from fear. Stress is not your enemy. You grow most when you push up against your comfort zone. Growth happens most in the recovery from stressful times. So keep pushing hose boundaries.
Nelson Mandela said
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. Cast off your chains. Lead.
We need to keep moving forward in life, in business. We need to keep innovating developing new ideas and better ways of doing things. Whenever you try something new you set up a new neural pathway.
People do business with people that they like
People do business with people that they like, businesses fail because they diversified too far and became mediocre in execution. Do what you do best and delegate the rest. It is not what you make, it is what you keep. Don’t get seduced by the top line.
Think about business as simply a way to connect with people. People love to buy but they do not like to be sold to.
Bill Gates said
I want to build an organisation where people feel they are part of a dream.
People may forget what you say, people may forget what you do, but no-one will forget how you made them feel.
Can you recall a buying experience that you have had where you have just felt that the sales person wasn’t really interested?
Steve Jobs was obsessed with the customer experience, he was obsessed with creating the wow factor
