Before coaching or exerting any effort as a leader, ask yourself these three questions: 1.) Who am I trying to convince? 2.) What do I want them to do? 3.) Why do I want them to do it?
~ Linda Byars Swindling
That statement applies to any area of your life. Leadership is not inclusive to ‘the office’ or your profession. Think about it. Who am I trying to convince? A teenager, neighbor, spouse, or even, yes, you! Leadership is a character trait that needs developing when you choose to step out as an entrepreneur. Let’s go back to question number one. Who is your target audience? It’s important to define who you want to reach and adjust your leadership language accordingly. Each of the examples given has a different relationship with you and therefore, you must know the language to capture their attention. Think about the similarities rather than the differences, if you are leading a large group of people.
Question two is the call to action. You may have a great idea or product, but if you don’t tell them what you want them to do, you may lose them. No matter how obvious the action you require, buy, watch, listen, etc., you must directly communicate exactly what it is you want them to do. Question three is the qualifier of why you want the action to those you are addressing. Remember question one? How are you meeting their need or resolving their pain? Communicating through stories and examples that create a picture in the listeners mind are effective with any group.
To excel in life and build wealth, leadership development must be a continual part of your assent. Whether you are just beginning to look at what makes a leader or you currently lead others, leaders stay connected with other leaders. Lee Arnold’s Las Vegas WealthShop was overflowing with leaders exhibiting leadership character and extremely successful! Those in attendance are fired up and know the importance of being together, in person, to inspire, support and learn from one another. There is only ONE MORE opportunity to learn from Lee Arnold’s leaders this year. November 12-15 in Spokane, WA is the Home Buyers Tour. If you haven’t heard about it yet, keep reading this week or
