If you are reading this, I think it’s safe to say you want a higher purpose for your leadership. You want to be authentic, and you recognize the difference between superficial benefits and real purpose. But that might not make it easier for you to discover your true leadership “why.”
I often challenge teams and individuals that I work with to think about the health of their overall relationships inside and outside the organizations they work for. Sometimes they look at me puzzled as to why I would ask such a question.
2020 is going to be a great year for Leaders Edge. I’m proud to say that my business has grown in a manner that truly amazes me, and I find myself in a position of authority and influence that I only imagined in my most optimistic dreams. This year my goal is to continue build that momentum while making sure leaders and influencers come along for the ride.
I’ve got big plans for 2020, and I’m excited to have you along for the ride! Leadership is changing and transforming, and I will offer my perspective throughout the year so we can all stay informed and empowered.
I feel like this has been an amazing year for me, personally, as well as for my business, Leaders Edge, Inc. The success I am experiencing is a direct result of your interest in me and my approach to modern, grounded leadership. I literally could not do it without you. So, I just want to say that I am very grateful for your continued support from the bottom of my heart.
Practicing self-care is simultaneously one of the easiest and most difficult things you will attempt to do. The momentum of conventional life will always pull you into a frenzied state if you let it, and the culture will never reward you for being good at self-care. But once you find what works for you – and make a commitment to doing it – it will seem effortless.
I think we can all agree that some amount of self-care is necessary for everyone, especially leaders who want to operate in a consistent manner and guide their organizations to greatness. However, every individual is different, so what might work for you may not work as well for your counterpart in a different department or another organization. With that said, there are some basic aspects of self-care that can be adapted to any leader or any leadership situation.
To me, leaders will perform at their best on all levels when they are comfortable integrating essential self-care into their lives. It is not just a “nice to have;” it’s necessary to keep up and to thrive in today’s modern organizations. Without it, leaders get burned out and are unable to provide inspiration. But when leaders practice self-care in a healthy manner, integrated fully into their lives, they benefit tremendously – and so do their teams, as well as their respective organizations.
