There are many resources on leadership; the difference in how useful these resources are depends upon your actions and the execution of how you utilize it. Leadership is a process, a journey to take daily, weekly or monthly. The process is not developed in a day but in every day. We mentor our clients through this process.
Leadership has been a skill from human existence to the digital world today. It is nothing else than having influence in your industry and with your team members. As you labor to add value to your customers and team members to leave a legacy, you will be educating yourself on leadership principles. We trust that adding this tool to your business tool kit will help your business navigate in the trenches of entrepreneurship.
The passion you feel for your business needs to flow from you to your customers and team members. To accomplish this, you need to keep enhancing your leadership ability. Everybody can dream about business ownership, but it takes leadership to turn the dream into reality. It took a guy named Ray to help Brothers Dick and Maurice to see the real American Dream with McDonalds. Michael Jordan is hailed as the greatest basketball player. People credit his hard work but miss his leadership skills on the court. You as well, as the business owner, will need leadership to empower your customers and team members along with your technical skills.
The Founding Fathers leveraged leadership principles to build a solid foundation through the constitution still standing after more than 200 years. For your business, it is important to develop your own business principles in order to create a legacy. After developing strong principles, your business will change as it grows. Change is painful and rewarding. Many companies over the years disappear because they resisted change and could not adapt to the new trenches. Business is continually changing. What can never change however, is your business constitution through your business core values.
The principles of leadership are unchanging and stand the test of time. Leadership follows the same principle, no matter where you go or what you do. The universe keeps evolving, technology marches forward, and cultures differ from place to place. However, leadership principles are constant. Whether you are looking at the citizens of ancient Greece, the wisdom of the Hebrews or Toltecs, the armies of the world’s superpowers, the leaders in the international community, or the great business people of today’s global economy, they all follow the same principles. Those principles will also guide you today.
No matter where you are in the leadership process as a business owner, the higher the number of principles you learn, the better the business leader you will become. The principles are stand alone principles. You may find that you are great in some but not that good in others. That is ok. We can help you develop those principles to grow your business.
