Room For Improvement

As an intentional leader, you spend a great deal of time working on improving yourself with the hope that it translates into improved leadership actions. I was reflecting on my own self-improvement last week while listening to a podcast by Marshall Goldsmith. He is the author of  What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There.  As a personal life coach, Goldsmith was discussing how leaders need to continually work on themselves. A question instantly came to mind, “Do you know what room in your leadership house should be the largest?”  The ROOM for IMPROVEMENT! Now think about that for a second and ask yourself, “How big is my ROOM for IMPROVEMENT?” if it is like mine, your need is huge, but maybe your room is about the size of a small closet. We get so caught up in the day to day activities that we often forget to work on our own self-improvement. This has made me rethink my commitment to self-improvement and to consciously expand the size of this room in my own Leadership House…It has helped me reconnect with what I call the Four Pillars of Leadership: Mindset, Self-Reflection, Self-Healing, and Emotional Intelligence. 

How about you?….Would love to hear how you work on self-improvement as a leader every day. Join In…
