Willingness to Grow: The Domino Effect

Episode 13

Transformation in the world happens when people are healed and start investing in other people.
Michael Smith

How do you want your family to grow under your leadership?

How do you want to influence others in your work environment?

Our willingness to listen and grow changes others’ lives, which impacts their sphere of influence.

I watched this amazing movie called Collateral Beauty with the actor Will Smith. One of the most amazing scenes was an elaborate city of dominos that was set in his office. The dominos were spread across multiple tables and they were set up in all different colors, shapes and sizes. At one point in the movie, Will Smith touches the end domino and the chain reaction begins as they follow suit.

Building Your Relational Leadership Muscles

Successful leaders are learners.
And the learning process is on going.
John Maxwell Leadership 101

Many years ago my company sent me to a nine month Leadership Class. I had been promoted to a Director, which carried a Board Position with it. And I needed some extra training in my expanded role. It was grueling and exhilarating at the same time. The class was three hours after a full day and most days I was at work at five A.M., which was the grueling part. However, the class was so well managed with practical applications and interaction with peers it made it an incredible growing time for me in honing my skills as well as learning new ones.

One theme was woven through out:

Keeping your Focus while Building your Team. 

One of the ways to strengthen your leadership muscle is by understanding how you lead. In last week’s blog, we studied Relational Leadership.

In review, Relational Leadership is the ability to build a rapport with their team in a way that maximizes every person’s potential while creating synergy among them in achieving clear set goals.

How do you lead?

Today, we are going to look at two very different styles. In fact they are polar opposites.

Improve Your Team Leadership with these 4 Strategies

You can download my New E-Book Relational Leadership with all the information needed to implement these 4 Strategies. 

Are you killing off your team? – I was!

Do you remember the first time your leadership style was critiqued?

Boy, I do! I was actually quite shocked.

I was the manager of a call center that handled some of the most prestigious companies in our region. My boss and I were chatting over coffee about work when he said, and I paraphrase, “You know Cindy, you are terrific at meeting the corporate goals, however, sometimes you leave a body count in the wake of your success. You are so determined to make the goals; you forget it takes people to help you achieve them.” I was taken by surprise! I am extremely relational, as well as, being goal driven, but it was apparent I was not incorporating them together. From that day forward I became intent on developing my skills as a Relational Leader.
