Even self-leadership, which can be the most difficult, because of your varying levels of obstinance, procrastination, perfectionism, and self-confidence, requires a gentle, nudge.
Leadership is important. It can have positive or negative effects on teams, families, generations, and nations. It’s no laughing matter — but you are. You are fallible, mistake-prone, occasionally pig-headed, and susceptible to flattery. You’re human, which means you can laugh — and you should. Besides, if you take yourself too seriously, the laughter won’t stop, it will just be behind your back.
Build your self-awareness. Grab a few leadership assessments, or check in with an accountability partner to see how you’re doing. If you’re leading, you’re teaching, and remember, lessons with laughter last longer.
