How often do you consciously make things happen?

The difference between the majority of leaders and those that have great success is when opportunities and success do not come their way, they make things happen.

This is the thinking you must have to make it as a successful leader.

Let me ask this question…

Ranked on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being never and 5 all of the time, how often do you allow your team to just drift along?

Done that?

Good. Now, let me ask you this…

What made you give it that rating?

There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened.Tommy Lasorda

Given that score, what could you do to improve on that and make things happen?

Think, “what can I possibly do…“:

  • that would improve the communication within the team?
  • that would be innovative?
  • to generate some new and fresh ideas?
  • to be more in touch with my team?
  • to improve the skills of my team?
