Do you have what it takes????
Leaders will need to MOTIVATE others to respond and move towards a direction of success for all.
Anytime you as a Leader want to influence others you have to…. Motivate them and inspire them to follow your thoughts.
Motivation is all about influence, and influence is all about adding value to others. So to be an effective Leader do not ask…..What can they do for me and how do I influence them to do that!
Ask yourself…what I can do for them that will add value to them today, so that in turn they will want what I want, and go where we need to go.
Leaders always lead by example, and show others how to do it, as opposed to simply telling them.
“Show me your troops and I will tell you everything about their leader, show me your leader and I will tell you everything about their troops”
General George S. Patton
“There is a single reason why 99 out of 100 never become leaders. That is their unwillingness to pay the price of responsibility. By the price of responsibility I mean hard driving, and continuous work…the courage to make decisions….the scourging honesty of never fooling yourself about yourself. You must travel the road of leadership heavenly laden. While the nine-to-five o’clock worker takes ease, you are toiling upward through the night. Any new effort, the psychologists say, wears a new groove in the brain. And the grooves that lead to the heights are not made between nine and five. They are burned in by the midnight oil.
Owen D Young
“Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country”
John F Kennedy
“In leadership ask not what they can do for me, but rather what you can do for them, to make them a success today.”
