Habits of Successful Leaders Continued...

Last week I wrote about an important topic that I talk about with many of the leaders that I work with, their habits

This is a critical topic for those of you who are running your own business, leading teams, navigating the corporate ladder, or managing a household. How do you keep your habits in the best shape to be personally successful and of service to those around you. 

Continuing on last week's theme, here is a list of ideas to help you take your leadership to the next level. They are: 

  • Returning phone calls and emails promptly
  • Being on time and even early to meetings
  • Having quality communication with team, colleagues, and clients
  • Clarifying and documenting your 90 day goals 
  • Keeping your desk and working space clean and organized
  • Allowing enough travel time for appointments
  • Networking five hours per week
  • Being an active listener
  • Starting your day in solitude, and then clearly defining your "main events"
  • Remembering the names of those you are introduced to
  • Getting up early at your most productive hour
  • Exercising 3 to 4 times per week (no exceptions)
  • Eliminating fast-food 100% of the time
  • Eating at regular times and adding healthy snacks to your day
  • Unplugging in the evening and being present with those you love
  • Taking time for time off and fun with family and friends

What are a few habits you can commit to over the next week? If you don't like what you see on this list, feel free to add your own, but be sure to write them down. Review your new habits daily and watch your commitment to self-care supercharge your leadership and effectiveness!
