In both stage I and stage II, you were introduced to the one-page blueprint from The Great Leaders Guide.
This tool was specifically designed to help you develop the self-confidence to identify your purpose and build the positive leadership habits required to level up your leadership.
Here are 3 ways to get the most out of The Great Leaders One Page Blueprint …
1) Start with purpose.
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain
Purpose is the game-changer.
The quickest way to move from a hesitant or stuck leader is to connect with your purpose.
There’s a reason why you’ve been put on this earth – and your job is to figure out why.
If you have yet to figure out your purpose, then your purpose is to discover your purpose.
Your purpose can be found by exploring your story – the unique set of events that have brought you to this point in your life.
Your story is a combination of your …
- Struggles – What challenging experiences have you overcome?
- Strengths – What is your unique way of viewing the world?
- Standards – What compels you to take action?
Just like the edges of a puzzle, once you uncover the patterns of your story, the pieces of your purpose magically fall into place.
2) Master the skills.
You’re not going to become a great leader scrolling through your social newsfeed or binge-watching the latest series on Netflix.
At some point, you need to do the work.
The confidence that you need to become a leader is developed through intentional action and regular practice.
The fastest way to develop the skills of great leaders is to use The 7 Skills of Great Leaders that I outline inside The Great Leaders Guide.
The 7 Skills of Great Leaders are …
- Lead Yourself
- Achieve Results
- Optimize Systems
- Walk Your Talk
- Nurture Relationship
- Manage Up
- Coach Your Team
Use The Great Leaders One Page Blueprint inside The Great Leaders Guide and make it a priority to develop these core leadership skills.
3) Make an impact.
It’s impossible to be on your game 100% of the time.
In reality, there are just a handful of moments throughout the day where we need to be at our best.
These situations are called moments of impact and occur when you suddenly find yourself outside of your comfort zone.
And it’s in these situations where we are the most vulnerable, we face the most resistance, and we tend to be the most emotional.
When these moments happen, we have a choice.
We can either …
1) Step back into our comfort zone by adopting our reactive leadership style.
2) Choose to embrace the growth that happens when we step out of our comfort zone and train ourselves to show up at our best in these critical moments.
Just like professional athletes train for those critical moments during the game, great leaders prepare by bringing their best selves to their moments of impact throughout the day.
The secret to becoming a great leader is to identify those moments and intentionally show up at our best.
Would you follow someone that wasn’t clear on their purpose?
Nope, didn’t think so.
I’ve never seen a great leader that didn’t have a clear and compelling purpose.
To become a change leader, start with purpose.
Leadership is not something that is granted overnight.
You need to master the skills.
Start by mastering The 7 Skills of Great Leaders.
And finally, you don’t have to be on your game 100% of the time.
Use The Great Leaders One Page Blueprint inside The Great Leaders Guide and pick those critical moments of impact that will make the most significant difference.
