Becoming a Leader

The biggest mistake leaders make is the lack of desire to go deep with their employees. It’s uncomfortable. But you have to listen.

One of the first things you need to do as a leader is self-leadership. Lead yourself first. How authentic are you being? What is your why? You have to care for yourself first before you can care for others.

Ask yourself, how are others experiencing your leadership. Lead yourself first.

You should have at least one 1:1 meeting with your employees each week to be able to listen to them. Ask them what excites them about their work. Ask questions. Listen.

Don’t blame others.
