Those in leadership roles frequently feel the burden of that responsibility. It is real! To whom much is given, much is required.
Being the best leaders we can be requires us to spend some of our personal resources on self-care. If WE are not healthy and well, what makes us think we can lead entire organizations toward health and wellbeing?
From my observations of some particularly "well" leaders over the years, I deduce common forms of Leader Think in which they engage.
Particularly "well" leaders...
- Hold zealously to their principles.
- Remain relentlessly committed to acts of service.
- Doggedly pursue continuous improvement, personal and collective.
- Engage in disciplined "exercise"_intellectual, physical, and emotional-spiritual.
- Ask excellent questions, grounded in curiosity and in relationship building.
- Engage and meaningfully connect with many others.
- Model and expect respectful behavior.
- LEARN daily.
