Over the years I have learned many things but one of the simplest is this: to become a better leader requires discipline.
We will all end up somewhere, doing something, there is no doubt in that. Maybe for leaders there is a need to develop a different approach, one not relying on a default way of life but rather one through discipline and design.
I was not always great at this and I am still learning. As I watch other leaders and wonder how they achieve what they do I discover this same simple truth: they have developed their leadership disciplines.
As a leader I have had to ask myself, am I happy with my leadership? Am I willing to do what it takes to improve? How can I grow myself as a leader, so that I can become a leader who has what it takes to grow others?
What are your specific leadership disciplines? I have a few and will unpack them in some upcoming posts.
