Today I was at Haverhill Elementary School leading another session in leadership. Today we talked about developing healthy habits. You can see from the pictures the kids were getting into this.
We talked about journaling, exercising, being grateful, doing a random act of kindness, and reading a good book among other things. We’ve encouraged the kids to bring their journals back in a month to see how they’ve been doing.
By doing habits such as these, we will become healthier leaders and ultimately happier leaders.
What kind of habits are you developing your life that’s making a positive difference for you? Comment below.
“So how is adding value accomplished? John C. Maxwell has developed three guidelines that help him add value to his team:
1. We add value to others when we… truly value others. Good leaders go out of their way to never subtract value from their people. They are intentional about adding merit and make it part of their core values.
2. We add value to others when we… make ourselves more valuable to others. The premise of adding value to the lives of your team members is based on the fact that you have usefulness to add. Are you able to teach a skill? Are you able to make a career changing introduction? Are you able to open the door to a better opportunity?
3. We add value to others when we… know and relate to what others value. As a leader how do you know what your team values? You listen. Many leaders are too quick to take charge. A good leader takes the opportunity to listen to what every person believes is important, and then leads.”

In a couple of hours, I will be facilitating another “Emerging Leaders” group sessions here at work. We are working our way through John Maxwell’s book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Here is an application from the end of chapter 5 (Law of Consistency) that is worth sharing:
“The more whys you have for pursuing personal growth on a daily basis, the more likely you will be to follow through. Start compiling those whys. Think of immediate benefits as well as long-term ones. Consider reasons related to purpose, vision, and dreams. Think of how it will help you relationally, vocationally, and spiritually. Any reason to grow is a good reason as long as it’s your reason.”
