06 Jan Paradoxical Leadership Inspiration 2017
I’m the first to admit that my metric-driven-scientific brain has never leaned towards mastering the art of poetry. As you read, I hope you will be challenged to tackle the stewardship responsibility of leading all of the up-and-coming leaders in your life, both work and home, in 2017 as you read.
However, to get the expected results, we must also help our staff achieve their personal goals and dreams.We’re expected to be strong leaders with a compelling vision;
However, to inspire the vision, we must serve our client, employee and constituents.
We inspire and create new opportunities;
And, yet, we also need to provide resource and reduce risk.
We create discipline to guide decisions and actions;
And, yet, that discipline is useless without the creative talents of our teams.
We exude external, confident strength to our teams;
And, yet, we can’t delude ourselves—we must be intensely in touch with our own internal misgivings and fears.
We’re called upon to stir a strong faith-in-the-future for our followers;
And yet, we’re called upon daily to deal courageously with the facts-of- current-reality.
We are laser-focused on delivering bottom-line results;
And, to deliver those results, we also focus on nurturing relationships with those around us.
We access all the resources and talent that we can;
While relying on the Almighty for wisdom and insight.
Use your leadership experience and wisdom to nurture and coach our future leaders in 2017, so that you might see them flourish as they help you reach your business goals.
Leadership Lesson: Focus on business results AND focus on building relationships.
