You can’t be a good leader to your team if you’re not constantly improving your habits and mindset
For me, there’s nothing more important that having that thirst for personal development in whatever you do – may it be in business or personal life. When you engage in something, it should not be just for the sake of doing it. Personal development – being continually better at what you do – is the motivation to develop a sense of ownership and responsibility for one’s own success. This includes creating positive change, overcoming obstacles, and determining a career path that will be fulfilling on a personal level and impactful for the entire team.
The problem is that when a business leader is already successful, he would often think he no longer needs to develop any further skills. As a Business Coach, I’ve worked with many business owners and I’ve learned that when they decide to keep mastering business leadership beyond what they’re expected, it helps them gain more empowerment. As a result, they become more committed to their work and feel much inspired about exceeding their goals and expectations.
The ultimate measure of business success is when you’re able to triumph in all aspects — financial security, sustained business growth and leadership mastery.
Map out the journey for your business first, then for yourself
In previous articles, I discussed about the importance of knowing your business and personal whys. These are the things you want to achieve for your business and for yourself. This is where you need to establish a workable path to both your long-term and short-term goals. Without a clear vision, leaders can lose that sense of meaning, and as a result they may get discouraged. Work becomes more stressful until they burn out.
It’s rather difficult to start working on becoming a good leader if you don’t even have a clue where your company is going or where it’s supposed to go. When you have a vision, you can put it into words and start on getting your team on board towards achieving it.
Personal development also means developing your team; their success is your success
You can’t measure the effectiveness and success of a leader without taking into account the morale and personal satisfaction of his team members. Even when you’re able to reach the peak of business prosperity, but everyone in your company is professionally and personally dissatisfied, you still would have failed as a leader.
You need to be genuinely committed to take your team with you in your journey for you to become a true leader. The goal is to motivate them to the point where they are able to perform their responsibilities not just because you ordered them to, but because they’re personally driven to achieve something for the team and for themselves.
Discover what Business Coaching can do to help your personal development
When you’ve established a clear vision and the right team mentality, it’s now time to go to work, and that’s where a Business Coach can be most helpful. As a Business Coach, my objective is to work with leaders to enhance personal leadership so they get clarity about their vision and goals, as well as their value to their own team. I help them become more focused on their priorities, so they can zero-in on the ones that have the most crucial impact. Doing this helps them take clear, specific actions to achieve results, with accountability, methodology and measurement.
Business Coaching can help leaders fill in the gaps. By helping them learn about themselves, they are then able to identify and leverage their own strengths. They become more efficient and they become better in maximising their time. They become better decision-makers and because their actions are more calculated, they spark more inspiration and trust among their employees.
