How Much Of Your Life Do You Own?
Leadership isn’t only about impacting those people immediately in front of you, but also about setting the stage for your entire environment to thrive, no matter your position or title.
How much of what you’re involved in do you own? We need to do as much as we can to ensure that those working toward our mission are as prepared as possible to meet all challenges and achieve all goals.
Make Your Own Impact
So, how do you improve your environment? How do you add value to what is around you? You don’t need to be an official leader to make any kind of positive difference.
There’s always an opportunity to help others build up their skills and refine their own value. There are opportunities at every turn to step outside of our own world and make a change in the world of others. That’s one of the foundational beliefs behind this month’s Monthly Check-In on Social Responsibility.
Leadership In These Times
Watching the news may be disheartening, but all the negativity we see can be offset by the little things we can all do for each other through the course of our actions. We can make an impression on others and influence others by understanding who it is they are and what it is they might need. No one can benefit from a divided world.
That belief ties into the Monthly Check-In on Emotional Intelligence.
How Important Is Your Networking?
Look around you. Who and what do you surround yourself with?
Reaching out is not only meant to see how you can improve your position but also to demonstrate what you can provide – who you are and what your value is. You can refine your leadership through who you know. So, networking is the topic for your monthly check-in.
It’s On Us To Make Everything Around Us Better
This is an interesting time to study leadership. Leadership around the world is moving at a rapid clip as evidenced by the rotating heads of state, shifting priorities, and reshuffling of partnerships.

Great article. My favorite question on the list: DO I OPERATE FROM THE INSIDE OUT? In short, how much of what you want truly comes from inside -- for yourself & not anyone else? #Beselfish 😉 #personal #leadership #life #goals #development #coaching ow.ly/pSix30obwjF
