That Unsuccessful Leaders Won't
This is the reality of the majority of leaders; they keep doing more of the same and continue to cause themselves and others unnecessary pain.
Few leaders admit that they don't have it all together and need help. The rest wing it as they go.
It's time to admit we need help, then go out and get it.
Below are 3 things that successful leaders get help with.
Start doing them for greater success.
1.Engage Counselors & Coaches
It is not easy to admit you are struggling and need help.
Successful leaders are aware of how life experiences shape how they show up as leaders. They, therefore, invest in counselors (therapists) and coaches to help them overcome limiting beliefs and behaviors that compromise their health, relationships, and work-life results.
Stuck in a rut and don't know how to move forward?
Take the courageous step to book a session with a qualified counselor or coach.
“A leader, first and foremost, is human. Only when we have the strength to show our vulnerability can we truly lead.”
Successful leaders know that if they are to go far, they will need to do so in community.
That is why they build strong communities of other leaders that they can turn to for insights, lean on for support, and answer to in decision-making.
If leadership has been lonely for you, it doesn't have to stay that way.
The quality of your life and leadership is a reflection of the quality of the community you surround yourself with.
Build or join a community of other leaders to help you grow beyond yourself, and offer support to others in the areas you are able to make a difference.
“Don't join an easy crowd; you won't grow. Go where the expectations and demands to perform are high.”
Successful leaders outsource to done-for-you services to save time, energy, and financial returns.
Whether it is getting their CV (résumés) professionally written, their meals cooked, their mail managed, or a myriad of other tasks, they release themselves from the pressure to prove that they can do it all by delegating or outsourcing to others. This frees them to do the things that matter most to them, the things they cannot delegate.
If you often feel rushed to do it all, or guilty for not doing it at all, give yourself permission to outsource tasks and move on with your life.
“Do what you do best, and outsource the rest.”
