THE LANGUAGE OF LEADERSHIP - V
What you value becomes clearer when you can articulate your values.
For some, it’s a gut instinct and others it’s words of faith.
Values are at your core. They anchor you and guide you through challenges and opportunities in life.
When I work with some businesses you’re confronted with their values, literally. Words on a wall or website. I’m always impressed when a business delivers on these words and they even use these words with pride in their communications.
Yet, there are some organisations who can’t tell you their values let alone deliver on them. This would seem the minority given my interactions in the past couple of years.
We have a mandate in leadership: to enable others to be their best selves in the workplace.
What becomes clearer for those who we lead, is articulating our vision. Parents do this easily by sharing their heartfelt wish for their children to grown into good healthy and happy humans.
In small business, when you’re the founder and creator, it’s easy to be the visionary aspirational owner. You have that new idea, that service or product which will solve and satisfy others and blow the minds of others.
And in organisations, it can be the same exciting adventure. Looking around corners is achieved by your involvement of the team. Get the whole mind and heart to see the vision for the business.
What’s your vision and what do you value. These two words work beautifully together in leadership.
We’re travelling The Language of Leadership. Join me with your V words which you use to express your leadership.
