Healthy Leaders Grow

We all know that healthy things grow. If you’re not growing stronger, you’re weakening. So, how can you grow as a leader? One of the best ways to grow in leadership is to surround yourself with people who are better, smarter, and stronger than you are. If you are always the smartest and most talented person in the room then you need to reevaluate who you are allowing to influence your leadership. Who has been doing what you do longer? Listen to them with a hungry and teachable spirit. Matthew 5:6

 

Some practical tools to grow daily are podcasts, books and articles from influential leaders. Seek mentorship from the great leaders around you and ask questions. Remember, you are becoming who you are practicing to become. If you want to be a great leader you have to practice to be great. As you improve as a leader, so will those you lead. The speed of the leader = the speed of the team!
