As a leader, you have an incredible opportunity to change someone’s life every single day. It could be something as simple as saying hello, writing a handwritten note stating you did an excellent job today or remembering your employees’ names when greeting them.
Some leaders take these things for granted but believe me, your employees will feel valued. Leadership is all about people, the little things make a huge difference, and the organizations that get it are the ones that ultimately succeed.
Leadership is never about tearing people down and making people feel less than themselves. Leadership is about people; it’s about inspiring people to believe that the impossible is possible. It’s about developing and building people to perform at heights they never imagine. It’s about making a positive impact on your community, your company, your department, your employees, and by extension, the world.
As a leader, you don’t inspire your team by showing them how amazing you are. You inspire them by showing them how amazing they are.
