Leadership can be a time suck, and some days, it may not feel like having a business is even worth it.
Yet, we know that good leaders have great leverage.
Good leaders surround themselves with the right people, provide clarity for what is expected, communicate clearly in all situations and then hold their people accountable to Get Stuff Done (GSD).
And, when you have other people Getting Stuff Done, you have leverage as a leader.
When a leader makes a commitment to work on their leadership style and develop their people, it is ONLY then they have true leverage. Voila – more time for the Leader!
So what do you do with your time and how do you view it?
I recently read an article by Joanna Gaines that was in the magazine “Magnolia.” I could not find the article online to link it to, but it is written below and I hope that it provides you with some insight into how you, as a leader view time. As you move down the road of becoming a better leader, may you take the time to work ON yourself as much as you work ON and/or IN your business. Your personal development is as important as your business development.
Take time for yourself and you’ll be so much better for everyone around you.
