Positive Quote: “Earn your leadership every day.” –Michael Jordan
This is a quote that says a lot with few words. Is it right? Do you have to earn your leadership every day?
I believe so. The people who look to you as a leader are hyper aware of what you say or the actions you take. If they don’t know why or understand they will make assumptions.
I’ve come to the realization over the years that being a leader is hard work. There is no coasting. Every day you are on stage, front and center to be viewed by those that follow you. Every nuance, every sentence can and will be mentally reviewed by others.
In my opinion, the way to earn leadership every day is to be consistent, fair, and not let your emotions get the better of you. If your normal routine is to come in every morning and say hello to people, try to keep it consistent. The day you forget you may receive a few inquires asking if you are “ok”.
What do you think? Should a leader earn their leadership every day?
