This week I’d like us to continue from last week with the most important skills of leading yourself. Today’s skill being RESPONSIBILITY
As a leader you have responsibility towards owners, customers, clients, followers, suppliers, relations.
Responsibility can be formal, informal, legal, moral, professional, corporate, individual, collective, social.
Again, and as always, it starts with taking responsibility for yourself. Are you someone life happens upon or do you take charge?
Your responsibility lies in controlling what you can control, influence to your best where you don’t have control, accept what you cannot control nor influence – and act accordingly.
Now --- You can choose to act or be acted upon, but in the end – you decide what you choose!
Responsibility gives you freedom, with freedom follows responsibility.
As Victor Frankl, the Austrian psychiatrist survivor of Holocaust said:
‘Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way’.
This week I propose you get yourself my freebie video and accompanying document presenting the 10 self-leadership skills for Conscious Effective Leadership.
