It's 7:59 am, and I'm just about to hop on to our daily team meeting. Our meetings are pretty light-hearted, we share a joke, walk through issues that have come up and review what's happened over the last 24 hours.
When my coach told me I HAD to implement them, I did so begrudgingly.
But, he was right.
Daily team meetings have changed our business and really increased team engagement.
But I got a little complacent...
Because the meetings were going so well, I stopped looking at our daily CEO dashboard.
Cue end of month, I grabbed the figures and I was a little shocked that half of them were missing.
It was at this point, I could have gotten really annoyed and called the team to task.
But the reality is, leadership is my job.
And when the team don't perform, it's my responsibility.
Learning to become a leader isn't like learning your times tables.
It's a trial and error thing.
There will be times when you slip.
There will be things you suck at but still have to do.
SO I wanted to share with you the 4 areas of leadership that I find myself tripping up over and over again, through the 15+ years I've been in a leadership role.
To show you that even though I've been doing this for years, I still sometimes get it wrong.
BUT, a great leader knows the signs and corrects the course as soon as possible.
So the team stays on track.
And they respect you for it.
