Positive Quote: “Leadership is the willingness to put oneself at risk.” – John Maxwell

 

When you think of yourself as a leader and when others think of you as a leader it becomes less about you and more about others.

 

There are many ways to define risk. Some of the ones that come to mind that affect leaders are…..

  • Are you making the right decision?
  • What if you are wrong?
  • Do you back you people’s decisions?
  • Do you hold yourself accountable for your team’s actions?
  • Are you investing your time to grow people?
  • Are you investing your time in the right people?
  • Are you holding your team accountable?
  • Is your business model (or processes, goals, roadmaps) the right ones?

 

There are so many variables to leadership and each day I learn more and more about my own leadership style. I chose to believe that the risks are so much less than the rewards of developing people and helping others succeed.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
