Leaders, First Lead Yourself

dreamstimecomp_19433599Be the example you want to see in others.

A strong and confident leadership team does not happen overnight. It takes planning and training to develop the leadership required for the organizations success. It requires an understanding of the people within your organization and a knowledge of their observable knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors critical to successful job performance. These skills, abilities, and behaviors can be demonstrated by the actions of the potential leader.

Every one of us has a history, a past that can be traced to our last job, our last successful adventure, our last failure or most embarrassing moment. Some of you have shared these key points in your life with the world online. If you are planning to take on a leadership role in the future, your history will be thoroughly examined and possibly torn apart. Companies will be looking for when and why you took control of your goals and how you moved yourself to your current status. Why you ask? Have you heard the expression “Lead by example”? How can an organization expect you to handle a leadership position and help move their organization forward, if you have not lead yourself first?

At this point you are probably thinking, how can you take charge of your own goals today so you can be the example you want to see in others and secure your future? There are several steps, but I will give you just a few in this post.

1. Start by preparing a personal mission statement and you will start to define your core values.

2. Next start setting realistic personal goals and hold yourself accountable for every step.

Remember to break your goals down into 30 days goals, 6 month goals, 1 year goals, 3 and 5 year goals. You will also need to confront limiting beliefs and expand your comfort zone.

This is just the beginning and I know you have a lot of thinking and planning to do, but this will open your heart and mind to dreams you kept way in the back of your mind and start to move you in the right direction. I have included my detailed list on my web site for you (http://www.ypiconsultants.com/media/lead-yourself-first/).

Take the steps you need to move forward and become the leader you are meant to be!

Your Mission Statement

Do you have your own personal mission statement?defining-it-project-success[1]

I do! If you don’t , you need one. Why? For the same reason a business has one. A personal mission statement is your reminder of your ethics (standards or code), morals (personal character) and the reason behind your purpose. Creating your personal mission statement will give you clarity for your goals and define your mission.

As a business owner or leader, a personal mission statement will hold you accountable and keep you focused. It will give you insights to the challenges you face and open your mind to new possibilities. How? If you are honest with yourself, you can start to see yourself change and move your life in the direction of your focus and your goals. You will see your accomplishments differently, note your success and see a pattern start to form. Your confidence will boost and your demeanor will change.

If you don’t believe me, try it and see what happens.

Basic Etiquette

Image

Today on “Image Talk Tuesday”, my blog talk radio show (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ypiconsultants/2013/03/26/image-talk), we discussed Basic Etiquette.

Dictionary.com defines etiquette as:

1.conventional requirements as to social behavior; proprieties of conduct as established in any class or community or for any occasion.
2.a prescribed or accepted code of usage in matters of ceremony,as at a court or in official or other formal observances.
3.the code of ethical behavior regarding professional practice or action among the members of a profession in their dealings with each other: medical etiquette.

Too often we take basic etiquette for granted or think it is not required. How wrong is that way of thinking? . Very wrong. Basic etiquette shows that you respect yourself and have respect for others. That is a big statement to make without speaking a word and can separate you from your competition when looking for a job, a promotion or closing a sale. Basic etiquette is simply having respect and using the words “Please”, “Thank you:, “Your welcome”, “May I be excused:, “Excuse me” and alike, you get my point. Seems so simple yet not considered essential. Etiquette is essential in today’s business environment and can make or break a deal. Understanding Professionalism and using your etiquette skills properly makes a big difference. Your language, tone, body language, attire and etiquette shows others Your level of Professionalism.

Do not let your lack of etiquette or professionalism keep you from reaching your goals.

Uncomfortable or unsure of your etiquette skills or your level of professionalism, contact Joann, Founder and President of YPI Consultants at joann@ypiconsultants or call 631-320-0217.
