LEADERSHIP

ARE YOU WILLING TO STEP TO THE FRONT?

LEADERSHIP CHALLENGES SPECIFIC TO HIGH ACHIEVERS

  • High achievers who are very caring and very responsible may put too much effort into problem-solving the difficulties of irresponsible employees.

  • High achievers who are big-picture, abstract thinkers may have difficulty understanding those who are concrete and sequential in their process.

  • High achievers may under-estimate the uniqueness of their skills and in doing so, become frustrated that others cannot achieve equal standards.

  • High achievers who are focused on problem-solving the destination may forget to adequately praise employees along the journey.

by Jim Collins

This is a great book for those who love information that is grounded in research. Jim Collins and his research team systematically evaluated what factors contribute to great leaders. Their findings are in this book. The book does a great job of detailing the research strategy, the findings, and associated applications.

q-17Start with Why

by Simon Sinek

This book helps leaders to really hone in on the reason of what they do. Clear and easy to read, it guides us to identify the most elemental “why” of what we do and to use it as a compass to direct ourselves and our businesses.

q-18Uncommon

by Tony Dungy

In an extremely non-preachy way, this book motivated me to step up my game. It speaks of character, congruence, integrity–leadership that allows us to be at peace with ourselves while making an impact on the world around us. Great for anyone who wants to lead from a place of personal excellence.

Years ago, I attended a leadership conference. I recall wondering what I was doing there as I did not currently lead people. At that particular conference, John Maxwell spoke about the need for self-leadership before we can lead others. I began focusing on self-leadership from the angle of wanting to trust and respect myself…and to be the kind of person that I would follow. For me, this includes living out my priorities, being careful about the promises I make, and realizing the power we all have to make a positive or negative imprint on the lives of others.

“I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.”

Robert E. Lee
