The Negativity That Limits Your Ability to Lead

Positivity or negativity? It boils down to making a choice. The attitudes we display go a long way in determining what type of leader we are and how many followers we have.

Do we choose our attitudes or do we let our circumstances or other people choose them for us? Do we choose to focus on others or on ourselves? Do we choose to look for solutions or look problems? Our attitudes have been and always will be a matter of choice. Continue Reading…

The Unreliability That Limits Your Ability to Lead

Unreliability or Duty? It’s a choice. Do we choose to do what needs to be done, or just what we want to do? Do we choose to follow through on all our commitments or flake out? Do we choose to give our best in all areas of our jobs, or just the part we really enjoy?

The Selfishness That Limits Your Ability to Lead

Selflessness or selfishness. We all make daily choices that prove we are selfish or selfless. As a leader, if our decisions display our selfish nature, then we are unlikely to have committed followers.

The Fear That Limits Your Ability to Lead

Man Watching through window blinds

Courage or Cowardice? It is the leader’s choice. There is no middle ground. Leaders are constantly confronted with choices that will expose us as a coward or a courageous Leader of Character.

  • What do we do when we are faced with uncertainty?
  • What do we do when we are faced with a situation that makes us uncomfortable?
  • What do we do when we are faced with saying what someone wants to hear versus something they need to hear?

Our choices when we face our fears define who we are as a leader. Continue Reading…

Why a Good Leader Can Make a Bad Decision

Regret

It happens everywhere, and we are all vulnerable. In business, in the military, in non-profits and in churches good leaders succumb to a temptation. Every leader is vulnerable including me and you.
