Are you doing everything you can to be the leader that cultivates an atmosphere that’s conducive to success?

To be a good leader you have to take calculated risks and when you do, you will certainly make some mistakes along the way.

Good leadership makes people feel that they’re at the very top of their game while demonstrating solid principles of leadership and consistently encouraging others to be at their very best.

Engaging leadership is a process that focuses on the individual’s strengths and contributions in order to drive their motivation and performance to a higher level. When people are encouraged, they feel valued and engaged.

It is a leader’s duty to inspire others, to build and develop other leaders and to encourage people to change the environment where they currently live.

There are many lessons we can learn in the art of leadership, but one of the most important lessons is to start with your heart and lead by example. Don’t ask people to do what you wouldn’t do yourself, and balance connection with a conviction.

SkyMTOP-PM12X12When you allow limits to exist in your life, barriers are created.  You will have overwhelming obstacles to overcome in your path of life. When running life’s race, you will have to jump hurtles, break things down into smaller, and simpler, steps to move forward in life.

If you are feeling “Overwhelmed” by your goal or vision then you haven’t broken it down enough into smaller pieces that you can manage.  So instead of just stopping and saying “I can’t do this because…” stop, and think, break it down again, make it smaller, make it the simplest it can be, then take your next action step towards your goal. If it helps don’t look at the future today, just look at the next step in front of you.

So stop placing limits in your life, get out of your own way and go make it happen.  “Living” your life isn’t for the weak and it will never be easy, but your other option is you could always live your life like the rest of the world by playing it safe so don’t be like everyone else… live without limits!

There are many leaders that people admire and who have influenced their leadership style. However, there is a style of leadership that does not always capture people attention and may confuse other people.

Imagine a leader who creates a team from ordinary people who were not from an elite or educated community. Consider how this style of leadership created other leaders by encouraging them to go out on their own without micro-managing them to carry a message.

This style of leadership focus on the growth of the individual, that they themselves might flourish and achieve their full potential and not primarily the growth and potential of the organization. The primary concern would be to serve their followers, and the only stipulation reviled was to share the responsibility and ownership with the people who follow, and to be mindful of their role and how it played in moving a message forward.

Leadership is an attitude, a behavior and an influence. Each one of us needs to exhibit leadership strategies in our relationships with others, in our marriages, in our workplaces, in our child rearing and in every other aspect of our lives. We should lead to serve others.
