Garage Sale Follow-Up

Reading time: 35 seconds                  Click here to watch the video.

The garage sale that I held a few weeks ago to clear the shelves of old leadership ideas was both a roaring success and quite disappointing at the same time. The success came as a result of those shelves being pretty well emptied to make room for a shipment of the leadership skills we’ll need in the 21st century.  The disappointment was because I only collected $1.73.  It’s a tough market when nearly giving things away is hard to do.

Meanwhile, we need to make the choices for how we will stock the shelves for today and tomorrow and it’s critical that we choose well.  Change continues to accelerate, we have four generations in the workplace now, each with its own needs and motivators and what we choose today has to anticipate what will be effective tomorrow.  How will you do that?

There is a very small handful of things that are consistent, that will be true tomorrow just as they are true today.  The most powerful is that we work with people.  Sure, we work with things, too.  Still, as a leader, what is consistent for you is that those who look to you for leadership are people – not units of production, not assets, not something to refer to on your list of company values.

We all have needs and wants, hopes and aspirations and we look to our leader to be helpful to us in filling them.  If you are to be the best leader you can be and create the greatest employee engagement, a major piece of your focus needs to be right there.  And that is the focus of Fully Alive Leadership.
