You can achieve much more than you think you can. So can your team and your organization. But you must take the first step and personally commit to leading. That’s the key principle for success. Whether you’re a new frontline manager or a seasoned CEO, the only actions you can control are your own. Your ability to understand what it takes to leads – and, more importantly, your commitment to do what it takes – will define much of your success.
Leadership involves many things but is primarily about confronting the day-to-day challenges that can keep you from reaching your goals. Leadership is about managing your time, getting your team in the game, and communicating simply and explicitly with your organization. All these leadership priorities have one thing in common: they start with you.
