Leadership Tools: 3 Critical Decisions for Success. Decision to Adapt, Decision to Find Resources, and Decision to Execute Daily.

1.The Decision to Adapt:  

Do you have a clear vision of the skills and behaviors you need to demonstrate to be successful in the role you want (or need) to have five years from now?  

Have you truly made the decision in your mind that you need to build yourself? 

Hint - Writing this down in very specific and quantifiable language with timelines can be huge.


2.The Decision to Find Resources

Have you tenaciously sought out the resources that can help you build yourself? These resources include meeting the right people, joining the right groups, finding the right training, books, websites, etc.  

Hint - think about your first “low-bar” as having 50 conversations with people who are successful and closely associated with the role you want to build yourself into. 


3.The Decision to Execute DAILY

Have you laid out and stuck with a rigorous professional development program? 

Hint - this is as regular and committed as a routine you would use to train for a triathlon. Most successful people just simply train harder, train longer and are willing to fail more while continuing forward with a positive attitude.  




The Quit Option
Most people rarely quit in the middle when they can see the end. They just have trouble getting started because the overall “Big Goal” seems too complicated.
Retirement Onboarding - Future Vision for Your Company
Owners have the unique position of having both the luxury and the responsibility of making sure that their vision for the company is the future vision of the company.
Vision + Execution
The first limitation most people and companies put on themselves is the size of their vision. While vision alone will not guarantee your achievement, a limited vision will nearly always guarantee limited achievement.
