There are a few ways to earn loyalty. The underlying foundation is all about how you make them feel. The first step is to practice empathy, everything becomes easier after that. Treat them how they want to be treated. Give them what they want so you can later give them what they need. The second step is to hold yourself accountable and always take full responsibility.
Build trust by:
- Respecting Others
- Encouraging Your Team
- Being Humble
- Focusing on Integrity First, Outcomes Second
- Apologizing Fast
Sometimes, we don’t know our strength… or the strength we inspire in others.
Happy Birthday, Julia!
The ultimate secret to great leadership is threefold:
- CARE: Care about others. Show you care.
- GO: Go to where you want to be, where you want to end up, go towards your vision and dreams.
- DO: Do what it takes to support, encourage, and guide your team to get there with you.
Our ability to overcome pain and disappointment determines our overall wellbeing. If we are focused on ourselves, we can never be truly happy. Often the only way to overcome something is to embrace what we feel, accept the situation, and keep moving forward anyway. When we focus on the goal – when we focus on others – our ability to endure increases. When we endure we can readjust our expectations and then gain the needed flexibility to create the life we want.
Smart people have great ideas. Smart leaders help others create great ideas.
Smart people get stuff done. Smart leaders help others get stuff done.
When you can listen to another and hear what they hear, when you can look at another and see what they see, when you can connect with another and feel what they feel, that is when you are on the road to empathy.
Leadership is not a position, it is an action – it is many actions and it is the result of those actions.
We are free from everything we disconnect from. Attachment creates the need. When we are detached, we are free. Attach to what is important, attach to that which is true, and light, and good. Detach from negativity, from greed, and from selfishness.
Love doesn’t manipulate. Influencing others for our own sake will never lead to the best results. The intention of the result is not as important as the intention of the heart.
