You get to a leadership position because of the hard work you’ve put into yourself. There are all the personal and self-development tactics that you’ve practiced. There are the books you’ve read and applied. And then there’s the
life change you’ve implemented into your life.
Once you’ve got into a
leadership position, none of that stops. You have to continue growing and learning. Otherwise, you stagnate and stop growing.
That’s not what you want. It’s not what I want. And it’s not what your team wants.
It’s your responsibility to
create an environment where you can continue learning and growing professionally and personally. Don’t stop learning, is what I say!
But, how do you create this continuing learning environment? I’ve shared about creating an environment for growth in previous articles, but we’ll expand on it in this one.
Leadership is a delicate balance. You have your work life. Then you have your home life. And everything in-between.
Too often these lives get out of balance. Sadly, our family life is the facet of our lives that suffers.
You put in the long hours at the office. You trudge through the week. And then, when you get home, all you want to do is kick back and relax.
But that’s not what your wife needs. It’s also not what your children need.
Your family needs you.
How To Give More To Your Family
Research shows a majority of people will rate their family as their top priority in life. Next to their faith.
However, you know that no matter how much you want to love your family, you’re not giving them all your all. You’re worn out and you’re giving them your sloppy seconds.
Do you want something more for your family? Do you want them to be more, do more, and have more?
