Leadership Day 1

Welcome everyone and since this is the first post.. there really aren’t many of you!  This blog is going to be practical things you can do to increase your leadership.  You don’t have to be a leader to increase your leadership potential!

A little about me, I am a senior project manager for a great company and I have held many leadership roles through out my career in both for profit and not for profit organizations.

Being a leader is not about telling people what to do but by helping them find their motivation to get the job done.   This can be really easy if you have a bunch of people who really love their jobs or really hard if you have a bunch of people who really dislike their jobs!

The first thing you need to do is establish who falls where.  Not everyone will be in the like or love bucket but you can pretty quickly establish where everyone is.  Once you’ve got that done you’ll need to establish WHY they like or love their job.

The rest gets harder from there!  For today, you have 1 job – make a list of the people on your team – this can be in your regular job, volunteer job or circle of friends and determine if they like or hate what they are doing.  Tomorrow we’ll talk about the next steps! Welcome to leadership simplified!!
