LEADERSHIP CULTURE LEARNING

​

'Claim your calendar before someone else does.' - Michael Hyatt

​

​
Some experts will say that we leaders need to become experts at
'managing time'.

​

I disagree.

​

No one can manage time.

​

Whether you are organised or not, time will pass. Managed or unmanaged.

​

Instead of attempting to control something that is uncontrollable (i.e time), I believe leaders like you need to become experts in self-management.

​

That is, knowing what's important AND sticking to it!

​

With self-management in mind, I have two questions for you:

  • Have you planned your 'ideal week'?
  • If yes, are you sticking to your ideal week MOST of the time?

​

My guess is that your answers to those questions are either:

​

  • No, No; or
  • Yes, No

​

You are not alone.

​

'No, No' or 'Yes, No' are the answers I hear most often from service-based business owners.

​

Your team and clients are important. But, they are not MORE important than you making it a priority to better manage yourself.

​

To enhance your leadership potential, and ultimately to build a better business, you need to manage yourself FIRST.

​

For years, I've been using Michael Hyatt's Full Focus Planner as a guide to manage myself.

​

The most useful pages inside the Full Focus Planner are the ideal week planners. ⬇️

​

In short, my leadership culture learning for you this week is:

​

'To lead others you must learn to lead yourself first.' - Tristan White

​

To get started, I suggest you draft your ideal week AND track how well you stick to it.

​

A good goal to start from is to stick to your ideal week at least 50% of the time for the next 3 weeks.

TEAM CULTURE TOOL

'A strong business culture starts with a compelling core purpose'.

If you believe that your team culture is important, then one of the most important foundations you need is a compelling core purpose (instead of a wishy-washy mission statement).

​

For inspiration, here are the core purposes of some service-based businesses I've helped guide and discover:

​

  • Birman & Ride exists to help people simplify and solve legal problems.
  • Coerco exists to provide safe liquid management solutions that you can trust.
  • At Family Law Matters, we believe there is a more positive way to end your relationship.
  • Women’s & Men’s Health Physiotherapy exists to restore pelvic health, empowering every person to live their best life.

​

​

If you need feedback on your core purpose, please let me know.
