What if everyone in your company acted this way
3 Simple Ways to Foster a Culture of Leadership
Cultivate Seeds, Pull Weeds.
Watch for the people who naturally rise – who demonstrate creative thinking, are positive role models, and whom others turn to for help. Shower them with opportunities for growth. People who regularly choke out good ideas, live in negativity, bring the team down… coach them. If they continue to be weeds, you have to let them go. This is essential if you want to build a thriving, high-performing culture.
Ignite, Not Mandate.
If you want to lead people somewhere, first think: Why would they want to be there? From that point of view, get busy creating reasons for them to join the journey. If you exude the passion and belief, others will follow.
Know Thy Leadership
Make a list of the top leadership qualities you have admired in other leaders throughout your career. Keep it nearby. How many of these do you exhibit in a week? Really? How many do you violate?
Be the change you want to see in the world.
And watch who changes around you.
