THE POWER OF THE LEADERSHIP SUCCESS LOOP
Wherever you are in your organization, I’m sure you would like to gain greater influence and credibility. Don’t try shortcuts, quick fixes, office politics, or gossiping.
Instead, learn to understand the power of unleashing the power of a proven process called the LEADERSHIP SUCCESS LOOP.
1. Genuinely care for others
2. Listen to their story
3. Sincerely appreciate others
Whenever I travel for speaking engagements, I choose one person in the food service industry who provides exceptional service. I hand them a $20 bill and sincerely thank them. This way, I am able to brighten their day. I found that sincere appreciation can fuel continued effort.
4. Contribute to others’ success
Few things will elevate your credibility than contributing to others’ success. I love Zig Ziglar’s quote and commit to practicing it:
5. Affirm other people’s gifts
6. Servant leadership
The best way to lead others is to serve others. One of my life verses is Philippians 2:3:
When you lead with a servant’s heart, you gain credibility.
7. Raving success
When Lou Holtz was coaching the Notre Dame football team he would say,
“Do what’s right! Do the best you can and treat people the way you want to be treated– and you’ll experience raving success!”
As you practice the Leadership Success Loop, you’ll notice people will respond to you differently. They will move toward you because you increase their personal value and self-worth.
