In a team or organisational context, it’s about achieving what’s expected from your job or role – be it the CEO or the janitor. Yet often, many smart people do their ‘best’ without any clarity on what are the top outcomes expected from them are and how their success is to be measured.
One of the most powerful things I’ve discovered in a leadership context (be it business or life) is that we all have an inner narrator. When people or events don’t line up with the way we like them, you’ll find that voice is activated. Most will listen to that voice as if it’s the real them.
Many people say they’re fully committed when really they aren’t. They hold back out of perhaps fear or from being focused on too many things at the same time. What really matters most to you? Are you fully committed?
In today’s world, leaders need to be aware that mindset has to be pro-actively managed. Why? Because it affects everything that matters. And in particular, it affects your state of mind or mood.
