Habits of Highly Effective Leaders

Nick Teti - CPCO

'Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others." Jack Welch

Why would someone follow you? (Self reflection)

Authentic - trust, integrity, honest, genuine
They believe you know what your are doing.
You have direction - heading in a direction others want to go.
Ability - make a difference
Exercise of influence
Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve.
Integrity is all encompassing (You define yourself when no one is watching)
Trust - The foundational principle that holds all relationships.
"Building trust on a team requires shared experiences over time"
Trust is built on Character and Competence

2. Begin with the end in mind
All things are created twice.
First a mental creation, followed by the physical creation

4. Think win/win
Doesn't have to always be win-win
Agreements and solutions are mutually beneficial -
Life is about cooperation not competition

Abundance vs. Scarcity Mindset.

See the problem from the other point of view
Identify key issues and concerns
Determine what results would constitute a fully acceptable solution
Look at new options

5. Seek first to understand, then be understood
Empathetic Listening - Listening with the intent to understand

6. TEAM -Together Everyone Achieves More
Synergy - Increas levels of communication to get Synergy (Win-Win)

7. Sharpen the Saw
If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first 4 hours sharpening the axe.
Physical - Mental - Spiritual - Social/Emotional

Empower Others
If we delegate tasks you will build followers
If we delegate Authority you will build leaders
It's not about recruiting followers but instead building leaders who can change the world
