I read this article this morning. Leaders gain more influence when we grow in gratitude.
Another great article by Tony Jeary.
As you may remember, I started two Emerging Leaders groups this fall. During the last two months we’ve been studying and discussing Jeff Olson’s book, The Slight Edge. We’re wrapping that up in the next couple of weeks. And in November will kick off a study and discussion on John Maxwell’s book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth.
Our discussions have been rich and I’ve been getting very positive feedback from the eight individuals who are going through this with me. One young lady said that she appreciated having to read a book because she normally doesn’t do that. In fact her mother was astounded that she was actually doing that. But she said she’s gained so much from going through this experience.
In January I will start another new group. It’s been a great investment of my time. Again, these meetings only last one hour once a week. In fact one of the groups meet during the lunch hour. It’s a minor investment that is having great returns. As Maxwell says, an organization gets better when the leaders get better.
I would love to hear your ideas of how you’re developing Future Leaders in your organization. Please share in the comments section. Thank you for visiting Go, Leader, Grow!
I kicked on my first L.I.D. – Leaders in Development session today at my son’s elementary school with the 4th & 5th grade student council. Today we learned that leaders connect best when they care about others.
These student leaders were great listeners and participated so well! These are very thoughtful kids. This month, they are hoping to donate over 1,000 pairs of socks to local homeless shelters (before winter hits here). I think they’ll do it!
How Leaders Connect and Care:
- Be yourself and have confidence in yourself.
- Be real.
- Focus on others.
- Give others hope.
