Lots of definitions of leadership are out there. Which one do you aspire to?
Let’s use this leadership pyramid, with the focused vision at the top expanding to the broad and inclusionary values that support that inspiration at the bottom:
Vision – Clearly state the purpose and goals of your business. Identify your customers and say how you will serve them.
Values – Define how your business will operate. Share your ethics and how your business will be run with integrity.
Empower – Give your staff the tools to accomplish goals and continuously grow and expand their capabilities.
Encourage – Accept the mistakes that will occur and use them as learning guides. Be the chief cheerleader for your employees!
Sweet and simple, yet a powerful basis to guide your actions as a leader!
