FINDING THE LEADER WITHIN YOU
 
Cameron Mitchell Premiere Events and The Exchange at Bridge Park hosted us this month with delicious bites and Steve Ransom brought the Fizzy Cat Photo Booth out to play! We also heard from Laura Converse-Haines, with Converse Electric, about Finding the Leader Within You.
6 Competencies of a Good Leader
  1. Managing Relationships: Seek to understand before seeking to be understood, listen and ask questions
  2. Goal Setting: WRITE IT DOWN!
  3. Time Management
  4. Strategic Thinking: Don’t get stuck in the weeds. Take a bird’s eye view for improvements
  5. Accountability: Be responsible for your actions
  6. Problem Solving: Understand the problem, devise a plan, be able to carry out the plan, assess the plan
What’s the biggest mistake in leadership? Telling your team what to do!
GWC…Do you… 
Get it?
Want it?
Capacity to do it?
If the answer isn’t yes, it’s probably not a good fit.
Get comfortable being uncomfortable. The best leaders are.
