I came across a great blog posting recently related to – you guessed it – Leadership.
What a cool story this blogger has to tell about their grandfather and the 20 Mantras of Great Leaders he developed through a business and teaching career. Read the full post here.
I think my three favorite (maybe the ones I connect best with) are:
1. Followers choose leaders they trust, respect and feel comfortable with.
(Those values of trust, respect or responsibility and caring really resound with me)
2. Be yourself.
(People know when someone is phony and they won’t respect and trust that person. You can only be an effective leader when you are yourself. Just because you might be a different leader than others, doesn’t mean you aren’t a leader)
3. Integrity is the bedrock of effective leadership. Only you can lose your integrity.
(This couldn’t be more true. Great leaders have integrity)
These three “Mantras” of leadership are things I strive to live up to daily. Which ones do you find important?
