New kind of Leadership
The world is changing, as you are well aware of. There is globalization, digitalization, more diversity in families, groups and communities with changes in various demographics and we can go on and on. All of this calls for new ideas about leadership.
Today I want to talk to you about 360° Leadership, for your private and professional life.
Be a full circle leader for your own benefit and for everything around you.
Be a leader in these four areas of your life
Look at those four areas of your life mention here below.
What goals do you want to set for each of them? How can you best align them with your values? Prioritize your time in those areas in proportion to which of them matter the most to you. How satisfied are you with each area? Can you improve your performance and contribution in those areas of your life?
The four areas are:
- Work and Career
Look into what you can do to become a better employee or worker, for you, those you work with and the organization in whole.
Use your time efficiently and prioritize your assignments according to the goals of the organization.
Find ways to grow and develop yourself in your job.
Do your best when communicating and working with your colleagues.
- Family and home
How much do you give of yourself, to your spouse, children, parents, siblings or other people close to you? How often do you have quality time with this people? Prioritize and set some time aside to be with the people you love.
Be a role model, regarding healthy lifestyle, how you handle your finances, how you treat the place where you live etc.
Do everything you can to solve any disagreements that may arise in your relationships and communication you have, look at your part in those possible disagreements.
What do you do for your neighborhood and community? Take as great part as you can in your community´s projects, sports clubs, volunteer, support a good cause etc.
See if you can be a mentor for someone in your community, or some of your cousins, someone you can help and would benefit from your experience and support.
Think about the environment by using environmentally friendly products, use public transportation, recycle everything you can etc.
Be your own leader, practice good Self-Leadership. I have discussed with you before that in order for you to be a leader for other people or certain goals and results, you have to start practicing good Self-Leadership.
That includes knowing yourself, your skills and strengths, your values and where you want to go. Along with the ability to influence, good communication-skills, emotional intelligence, habits and behavior that will lead you to the goal you are aiming for.
Find ways to strengthen yourself, to grow and develop yourself as an individual and human being.
Be aware of how you think of yourself and how you talk to yourself. Are you building yourself up or tearing you down? Talk to, and think about, yourself in a positive and constructive way. The way you talk to yourself affects your self-image and self-confidence which again affects how well you do in your challenges and life in general.
This new approach in the leadership discussion is in my opinion long due and I´m pretty sure you agree with me.
It is also a great way to bring about the changes we have been longing for, to develop ourselves as individuals and create work environment and communities we all want to be in.
