Do you as a leader know why your team performs well?
Do you know the real why behind what drives your organisation? If not, why not?
Knowing your why is not the only way to be successful as a leader, but it is the only way to maintain lasting success in this fast paced world we are living in.
- People don’t buy what you do as a leader, they buy why you do it. That’s why it’s so important to communicate the why in everything you do when leading your teams.
- Stop and ask yourself at least once a quarter, why do you do what you do?
- Outstanding leaders not only excite the human spirit, they inspire their people to bring their presence, heart and brains to the workplace.
As a leader, I encourage you to know your why and inspire everyone around you to do the same, then we can all make a real difference together.
This blog was inspired from reading Simon Sinek’s work ‘Start with Why’. An excellent book full of content and practical ideas.
