Since you took the quiz, it’s likely you’re contemplating if leadership is right for you. If so, it’s imperative you build a strong foundation of entry-level leadership skills if you decide you want to be a leader. You want to be ready when opportunity knocks. Maximizing your leadership skills can positively impact your professional and personal life. Developing these skills is one of the surest ways to enhance many aspects of your life.
Your Greatest Challenges
Comparing yourself to others – In the age of social media, emerging leaders find themselves comparing the number of likes on a post, their number of connections and accomplishments to their peers. STOP IT! Everyone’s purpose in life is different, which means you could miss out on creating a meaningful and fulfilled life if you focus on what others are doing or try to follow in their footsteps. It’s okay not to be in the same place as your peers. Just focus on defining your purpose and creating goals that will lead you toward living your best life.Identifying your career goals – Based on your responses to the quiz, you may be unsure whether leadership is for you, so you don’t push yourself to do more than you’re already doing. Maybe you don’t think you’ll be great at it or perhaps becoming a leader will not be a meaningful enough career. Whatever the reason, understanding your career goals will help you identify if leadership is for you. It’s time start looking inward so you can figure out what you want to do.
Shifting your mindset – if you want to become a leader, you’ll benefit from shifting your mindset from focusing on you and your current role to how you can contribute to your team or the larger organization. Leadership is about supporting and being in service to others. Ask yourself what is getting in the way of you stepping outside of your comfort zone and making it known to your boss and others that you would like to be a leader. What more can you do to help others achieve their goals?
How To Stay Motivated
Identify your strengths and make sure you use them regularly. The more you use your strengths, the happier you will be, the better results you’ll produce and the more motivated you will be.
Take the opportunity to identify your personal values. Personal values are the principles, beliefs, and standards that you live by. They are your compass or GPS that influence your decisions and shape your view of the world around you. The more familiar you are with your core values, the better you will be at making decisions that align with you who you are. The more you live by your values, the happier you will be. Next Steps
