The essence of leadership
Leadership is about moving an organization towards good business results It is about inspiring people to move in the same direction. It is about fostering action that creates success.
Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers – Robin S. Sharma
As leaders, we create strategic input, develop a vision for the company. We set common goals. We make sure the budgets are in set to reach them. We have a full agenda every day. But, have you booked time in your agenda to nourish your organization?
Nourish your organization
Have you created a strategy on how to nourish all your plans and inspire your people to have enough fuel to reach your organizational goals?
An apple a day keeps the Doctor away
Too often, we are too busy to lead to remember that we need an apple a day to fuel the organization. Our people needs an apple, the clients need an apple, our suppliers need an apple, the strategy and plan also needs to be fueled and last but not least, we also need an apple a day as leaders.
You need to find the apple that can re-boost your energy, the apple that lifts you up, the apple that gives you energy to keep going. Inspiration and motivation are key factors to move and take action. All the element needs to be nourished to bloom. It only takes a snapshot.
We all have weekly meetings. The agenda is full of budgets, issues, stories. We take the time to discuss all sorts of things. Unfortunately, my experience is that we spend far too little time in these meetings to discuss how we should get the organization to move in the right direction and make success a reality.
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality – Earl Nightingale
What you focus on is what you get. We need inspirational apples on our weekly agenda. We should focus on how we as leaders should empower ourselves to move the organization. To become better, we should have time to discuss the importance of motivating people and what we as leaders and as a team can do to make sure we create that movement.
My experience is that this happens too little in most organizations My wish for this book is that it gives leaders inspiration to empower their leadership. This is the reason why I wrote Leadership Snapshots. My wish for this book is that it gives you the inspiration to empower your leadership. A snapshot a day keeps issues away, and will give you additional time to focus on the essentials in your leadership.
It only takes and apple, it only takes a snapshot – be inspirational!
