Low morale in teamwork, among other things, is due to a lack of responsibility. Whether it is by the group leader or one of its members, this lack of commitment creates a dishonest environment, where others do not want to work.
In general, we know that being responsible means we must do what is expected of us. Also, we must be committed to each of our actions and ultimately our decisions.
I invite you to see the importance of responsibility as a leader and how as a leader you can measure your level of responsibility and commitment to your teamwork.
If you admire action movies, you may have seen one where the main character had to achieve a great act, save the world, or themselves. Regularly, one of the characteristics of these characters, which leads them to achieve what they set out to do in a very short period of time, is their ability to concentrate and focus on their goal.
In real life, this character is the leader. Leaders are leaders because there is an objective, a goal, and a vision. Let’s be reasonable though, just because there is a goal does not mean that the leader can lead themself or others to achieve it.
I invite you to look at what it really means to have focus, why you cannot lead yourself or others without developing the ability to focus on your goal, and how you can test yourself to discover your ability to focus.
We live in a hyperconnected world. We have a large workforce in virtual, mobile, and decentralized offices. Teams and organizations increasingly become more diverse. Today many companies are on social media, using traditional communication channels less and less.
If we add to the above the economic, social, political, and health challenges of recent times, it is no surprise that ethical standards are defied amid all this pressure and complexity in which we live.
Let’s look at how today, more than ever, we must lead with integrity and how we can facilitate the process of making ethical decisions in these times.
Many people say that to be successful you must follow your passion. I think it would be better to say that to be successful it is not only necessary to follow your passion but to also live with passion.
If you have ever heard or read the stories of Vincent Van Gogh, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, or in recent years, the stories of Deepak Chopra, Richard Branson, or Oprah Winfrey, you will understand what it means to find your passion and live with it.
I invite you to take a closer look at why passionate leaders achieve their goals and how to assess passion in your leadership.
