Evaluating Leadership…

Evaluating 2020 causes confusion at best and concern at worst. It has been quite a year for leaders in every arena. How can we deal with the challenges of leading during such a time as this?

The first step is an awareness of the needs. Unless we can see the need to improve the steps that follow have no value.

The second step is a resolution. Without the resolve to make changes, recognizing the need is only a wish in disguise.

The third step is implementation. The difference-maker is a plan to implement our resolve. How will we accomplish the goal?

Head, Heart, and Hand Leadership…

Three components that symbolize necessities for leaders.

Head: The head involves knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Leaders provide information that allows followers to gain the knowledge needed to make decisions based on understanding.

Heart: The heart involves an emotional connection. While there is a need to provide followers with knowledge, when the information connects emotionally, conviction runs deeper and lasts longer.

Hand: The hand relates to action. Once there is an informed, emotional connection, the natural response involves activity.

Information alone leads to confusion. Emotion alone lacks conviction. Action alone limits inspiration. Leaders who connect all three can change the world.
