What Is Your Leadership Point Of View?

How do you answer the question: what is your leadership point of view? Randy Conley told us in Simple Truth #29 “Self-Trust Is The First Secret To Success” we should clearly identify our leadership point of view. To do this we need to answer these questions:

  • What motivates you as a leader?
  • What are your values?
  • What are your beliefs about leading others?

Randy said, “If you don’t know the answers to these questions, your leadership could be drawn off course” (p. 79). Randy also asked us to contemplate what leadership legacy we want to leave. I learned from my friend and mentor, Dr. Joseph Michelli, CEO of The Michelli Experience, how important is was have a Legacy Statement. Here is mine: “Hopefully I’ll be remembered as a thoughtful leader who showed love for those I served by providing growth and development.” It is amazing how often I go to this to make sure I am serving people in a way that will carry out my legacy. Along with my core values, this serves as a compass to keep me pointed true north. Finally, as Randy reminded us, make sure and share all this with those you serve.
