Are you holding yourself back from business growth?

Do you ever get the feeling that there is so much more potential in you but you don't know how to use it? Because your business can never surpass the level of thinking that you have.... and you know this but unlocking this thinking will mean you will have to let go of the need to know and go into unexplored territory. It will be the key to transforming your results. And it can be scary, I totally get it. But we all LOVE getting better results.

That's why I thought I would let you in on the secret 6 elements I look for in a successful leader. I trust this will help you decide where your next focus area needs to be.

Leadership traits

Communication- Yeah, yeah yeah, We have heard this 1000 times. But what does it mean? It's taking responsibility for HOW we communicate and knowing that we can not control how others interpret it but what we can control is how often we say it, what method is used and what tone we use.

Be willing to learn- There is a beautiful quote that says "If serving is below us then leading is above us". We are constantly on a learning journey and the way we can develop ourselves is to be service of to others.

Be willing to unlearn- We have all grown up with conditioning from our environment but if we never question this then we will become stuck in the constructs of a limited world. Every now and again ask yourself "Is this the only way to think about this?"

Goal setting - There are 2 types of business owners: Strategic and visionary. If you are a business owner and have not partnered with someone else who evens that our for you then you need to develop your muscle around goal setting and bringing a vision to life. If you don't know where you or your business will be in 2, 5 or 10 years then you won't be making decisions to bring you to your ideal outcome.

Personal Effectiveness - How you handle yourself day to day. What does the outside world see and how congruent is that to your inside world? In coaching, we bridge this gap so that your imposter syndrome doesn't need to run the show because you will feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside.

Effective listening- Your ability to be fully present to your team and customers determines your level of success. Are you waiting for them to stop talking so you can start?

If you would like to have an in-depth conversation about where your leadership gaps are because you are sick of holding yourself back then give me a call and we can create a pathway forward for you to start being that leader that you always knew you could be!
