Limiting Internal Beliefs: Controlling
Levels of Development
Humans develop through very specific stages over the course of their lives, and along the way they can become better equipped to handle the complexities of today's fast-paced and interdependent business environment.
By understanding the stages through which people develop, you'll be able to set forth a path to increase your effectiveness as a leader.
"Are leaders born?"
This is an interesting question that I am often asked in the leadership development programs we run at 5.12 Solutions.
We believe that leadership isn't about being charismatic and it’s not about some magical qualities that are bestowed upon you at birth. And you don’t have to go through special forces training as a rite of passage.
Leadership is about employing key skills and behaviors on a consistent basis.
And those skills and behaviors can be learned.
The first week of January is over. Are your people aligned?
Is every team member, from your front line employee to supervisor to mid-level manager and above, clear about the strategic direction of the organization? In most companies, it’s well into the calendar year before team members understand the vision and strategy. If this is the case on your team, you'll probably notice a lack of clarity, confusion and unspoken expectations. The business results you'll experience are lost productivity, low employee engagement, and missed opportunities.
Let’s face it; we all need help along the way.
Congratulations on establishing your goals! That is a huge step toward personal growth and success in the coming year and beyond.
Make 2012 your best year yet!
I designed The Ultimate Goal Setting Guide after years of facilitating strategic planning and goal setting workshops for organizations and individuals. I wanted to make my proven process accessible to everyone, because I believe more than ever that we all need a clear vision and intention for how we live our lives.
If you have been following my last few posts, I have been setting you up for this goal setting article.
With guiding principles to help steer you in the right direction and a bold and audacious attitude, you are ready to establish the goals that will help you generate the life you desire and deserve.
So, what's your plan for 2012? Henry Ford said it best: Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right! What you decide to focus on has a huge impact on the goals that you set for yourself and your ability to achieve those goals. To truly create and align goals with your wildest dreams and aspirations, you have to embrace a bold and audacious attitude.
