Why We Need More Leaders
This is a call to action. The world needs more leaders. And not just leaders who are assigned to a position, but true heart-centered, servant leaders who are creating a difference every day and causing change in our world. There has never been a better time in history to step up and lead than there is today.
Gratitude Tip: Either you are a follower or a leader. Ask yourself this, where in my life am I a leader? And where in my life am I a follower? Are there areas in your life where you can grow and develop your personal leadership? In order for our gratitude movement to grow more quickly, we will need more people to step up and lead from where they are, and no matter who they are leading, start with a foundation of gratitude.
I have been spending a lot of time listening to John C. Maxwell lately, and really enjoying his latest book, Intentional Living: Choosing A Life That Matters. There is an amazing chapter on how once you know what your mission in life is and the mission of the tribe you are building, you will begin to attract the people you are seeking. We spent quite a bit of time on this during The Art of Leadership this past weekend and it was very powerful. As USANA leadership team, we spent three long days clarifying on our core values, our mission statement and our code of conduct. We have put together something truly amazing and we’ll be sharing it with all of you in January.
Leadership is a privilege, not a right. In the past, I would often step up as a leader for the wrong reasons and it was a challenge to create a culture that fostered growth and advancement. It’s taken me a long time to go from being assigned a leader to actually operate as a servant leader – and I still have much to learn. I’ve spent a lot of time in personal growth and development to become a better leader and I feel that now I am at a point in my leadership career where I am truly learning to lead from my heart and in service to others. I am committed to guiding others to grow their own personal leadership as well, and to help them avoid some of the pitfalls that I came across, or if they do end up in a hole, reach down and given them a hand to get back up.
My question for you today is are you leading to the best of your ability? Or are you ready to step and a develop your leadership to another level? If the answer is YES, I’m ready to step up – we’ve got room for you on our tribe. Take a look at the details of my mentorship program and see if it’s a fit for you. All of the people I mentor directly are a part of my USANA team, so you’ll get the opportunity to create your most vibrant health all while developing your leadership.
