Leaders, are you prioritizing growth – not just in your business, but on a personal level? Being a coach and being responsible for achieving organizational results means leaders are often pulled in many directions, with competing priorities and a never-ending to-do list. But leadership means constantly learning and adapting. It’s critical that you make time for expanding your knowledge and adapting to new methods and information.
You may feel like there’s simply not enough time and space to work on your leadership, however, I would urge you to consider the return on investment when you prioritize growth and adaptability. In addition to being ready to tackle any challenges as they come, promoting agility within your teams will ensure they view change in a positive way, rather than being afraid of it.
In addition, how you approach your role, how you manage your time, and how you leverage tools and outside resources will increase your leadership competency and inspire innovation throughout your organization. Culture and productivity start with us, the leaders, and our attitudes and actions rub off on others.
If you haven’t done a check-in on your leadership growth lately, perhaps it’s time to take stock of how you’ve grown and adapted this past year. What have you learned? How have you applied what you’ve learned to your role or the way you lead? Leadership growth isn’t a destination; it’s an ongoing journey that fuels results and inspires epic teams and organizations.
And if you’re in need of some guidance, MDR has loads of resources at your disposal. Reviewing your DiSC style and how it compares to that of your direct reports is one way you can reignite your growth and learning. Our leadership development programs targeted at building a musketeer culture can also be an excellent way to learn how to improve collaboration and foster emotional intelligence within your teams.
