As I watched the performers with my family last night at Cirque du Soleil at the Roanoke Civic Center, I thought about how fearless and focused they were and how much fun it has to be to perform like they do. May this list help you on your journey this week.
WATCH THIS… Cirque du Soleil Quidam (7:58) and see if it doesn’t inspire you to motivate yourself and your team to reach slightly higher this week. What the performer does at 6:52 is amazing!
DO THIS… be generous with compliments and constructive encouragement. Those you are leading need to know if they are moving in the right direction or the wrong one. They are executing your vision. Do they clearly know what that vision is and whether you value and appreciate their efforts? Don’t take your A players for granted or they will be someone elses one day.
READ THIS… 6 Habits of Strategic Thinkers, this article will guide you to Anticipate, Think Critically, Interpret, Decide, Align and Learn your way to great leadership qualities.
DO YOU WANT THIS… lessons with many chapters or one’s that can fit on a flyer.
Choose one task this week that is not urgent but very important. If you and your team have already created a vision, how long has it been since you clearly communicated it. Does each player know what their part is? Do they know when they’re doing a good job and where they need to improve? Both types of feedback are important. If a leader above you doesn’t communicate both sides of that equation, be the change you want to see. You are a champion. Act with the highest of integrity in every situation this week. You set the tone and can effect the mood. Be fearless. Be focused. Have fun!
