I’m in my fourth state in five weeks as I write this, Kentucky currently. And I just finished facilitating/speaking at back to back leadership retreats — both for the hospitality/resort/recreation industry. But no matter what type of business, organization, association, or other group I speak to, I always come away reminded of one thing…
Human beings are human beings. No matter what their title, position, financial status, or any masks they may wear. People across culture and political affiliation still care about similar things and the decisions they make still create predictable outcomes — good or bad. My ultimate takeaway?
Human beings are absolutely worth investing in.
By the facial expressions, body language, engagement, and occasional tears of the groups I speak to, it seems I’m not alone in my opinion. Grown women and men courageously cry when they care.
In preparation for the groups I just met with, I culled information from my years of experience as a leader and business coach to come up with what I called, Five Lessons from Highly Effective Leaders. But as I thought about it, I realized most of the leadership tips on this one sheet apply to anyone who wants to experience deeper happiness and an enhanced quality of life. We all lead someone, the question is, are we leading well?
Every person, including you, needs a reason to get out of bed each day: a purpose, positive plans, power to make a difference. If you lead no one else, to live a life of true happiness, at the very least you should lead yourself.
