I’m going to keep things short and sweet today but I’m going to ask you a hard question and I want you to think about it over the weekend.
Are you a leader?
In my experience, I’ve found that leaders do two main things – and two things only. They have the skill and determination to get things done and they have the ability to inspire and motivate those around them.
Do you get things done?
Do you motivate others?
Take some time to reflect on your performance over the past year. Did it feel like you were pulling teeth when working with your team members or were they glad to work with you? And – there’s a question right there – were they working for you or were they working with you?
So, are you really a leader? And, if not, will you become one this year?
