Communication as a leader.

September 17th, 2017 Posted by Journey, Lightbulb Moments No Comment yet
My communication skills have always been my weakest link, my ability to get across how I truly think and feel without diminishing my feelings or blowing them out of proportion. While it’s not something I like to talk about I don’t feel like I can tell many people how I truly feel because I’ll say it the wrong way or I don’t even honestly know what that feeling is.

 

This has been my weakest point when leading a team. Communicating effectively to my team about what I believe, why I do what I do and how I do it is a daily battle for me. The next step is even harder, putting KPI’s, tasks and guidelines in place so that they know what they are doing, what is expected of them and where my boundaries are is something I’m continually working on.

 

Especially in a small business, where we are all a little family, we do care about each other on a personal level. Having to follow through on rewards is easy, I love that I want to give my team everything they could possibly want. Having to put in place expectations and boundaries and then follow through on them is the hardest thing.

 

Through all of these ups and downs being able to say what you truly think and feel is incredibly difficult for me, but then it’s not about me at all… is it. Which is a relief, I know that as long as I continue to believe in and work for cause that is greater than myself, it doesn’t matter if I say the wrong thing or communicate in the wrong way.

 

Of course that doesn’t mean don’t try, it means the opposite, it means that I can get the fuel and drive to try and try again because I get to serve a cause greater than myself.

It’s all about the long game.

  • 2 years ago @skeevestevens & I got chipped, now we host “Chipping Parties.”
  • 5 years ago I started using and teaching other people how to use #fittech now we have a company called @superhumanology which is a tech support business for #wearables#lifetech & #fittech
  • 6 years ago we decided that our crazy fit each other so we got married

Of course there has been lots of other things done together and companies started, a lot of hard work and so much fun.
Skeeve always talked about long game, and I knew it was important but I never realised how important.
Just like a lot of amazing leaders Nikola Tesla put it well… the long game is awesome if you stay the course.

This really made me think…

I’ve been talking to people this concept all week. I believe we are in such blessed times, that we can learn from the people who have gone before us. It’s never been easier to learn from anyone no matter where they are in the world. 

I’ve always loved being around people who are older than me, or have really different opinions to mine, or come from a different culture, or younger than me.

As soon as I meet someone from a different culture I go into.million question mode, because I want to know about how they see the world.

One of my strongest beliefs is, I will only move forward if I’m willing to learn from everyone I meet/listen to. I don’t need t share the opinions or beliefs of everyone I learn from, but I can learn something from evryone. 

I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have mentors and influencers from an early age. Some people I asked to mentor me, some people I would have crazy debates, some I just flat put disagree with and some it’s more of a look back and reflect situation. But I will always learn something.
