Thoughts and Truth from the Impossible Life

Leadership

Leadership isn’t something you can put on like a suit of clothes or generate by copying someone else. Leadership is about who you genuinely are.

Successful leaders are those who are conscious about their behavior and the impact it has on the people around them. These leaders are willing to step back from the fray and get an accurate picture of what is working in their organizations — and in their lives — and what is not. Moreover, they want to know the why. They are willing to examine what behaviors of their own may be getting in the way.

Successful leaders understand that if we don’t lead consciously, it’s easy to repeat patterns that could be keeping us from achieving the results we are hoping to achieve.

The toughest person you will ever lead is yourself. We can’t effectively lead others unless we can lead ourselves, which starts with knowing who we are.
