Your leadership transformation

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

When you stop doing some of the things you are doing now, and start doing more of the more important things that will make a difference tomorrow and years down the road, you are transforming your leadership impact.  

Maybe it’s not so hard after all…

Make space for the new and better activities

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

In order to “do the right things when you work”, you have to do something different.  Something more.  But you can’t do more; your schedule is already full.  

You have to stop doing things to make room; things that are comfortable, predictable and habitual for you.

What do you need to stop doing or delegate to make room for doing more of the “right things” as a leader?

Be grateful

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

When I am having a bad day, and my self talk wants to complain (that’s right, I’m not perfect!), I sometimes catch myself and say “Look at what I have to be thankful for” or “Look what has gone right” or “Look how far I (we) have come since we started”.

It helps a lot.  

Jim Rohn said “Learn to be thankful for what you have while you pursue all that you want”.

What do you have to be thankful for?

Is working harder or longer your answer?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

When we fisrt start in business and we are one of just a couple employees, working longer and harder could make a difference – it was our “winning strategy”. But now we have 10 or 20 or 100 employees and it’s a losing strategy. We are only one person, and working harder to do the work only leaves us exhausted, with no time for our family or having fun.

If you want to earn twice as much, can you work twice the hours? Clearly working longer and harder is not the answer. What is?

Do the right things when you work.  That’s the answer.

Distracted by what is

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

The world is full of what is already; but that should not stop you from seeing what isn’t yet.

How would it be if you had to start over, and things that are already here weren’t clouding the view?

What is your preferred future?

Why #1 is called #1

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

What is your #1 priority right now?

What is #2?

Forget #2.  When #1 is done, then #2 may become #1 when you ask the question again.

Focus on #1 until it’s done.

What’s your #1?

New Boss or Pay Raise?

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Most people would take a new boss over a pay raise!  Think about that one!

Your managers and department leaders; are the “bosses” your people are reporting to empowering and inspiring your people to perform or are they disempowering them?

Market Signals

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

When a business is having trouble or fails, it is a message from the marketplace; “we don’t want what you offer, how you offer it, where you offer it or at the price you offer it”.

Are you having trouble growing your business or keeping sales up?  

Ignore market signals at your peril.

Pay attention and adjust until the market sends you a positive signal.

"Know-it-alls"….don't.

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Some leaders reject ideas from outside (themselves).  They think because it wasn’t their idea that it’s not good.  Of course this is very childish, but we can be that way.

Stay open to ideas – even ideas from your competitors, from your enemies, and from people who aren’t doing as well as you.  There is no way you can come up with all the ideas you’re going to need to succeed.
