One of the best and most satisfying aspects of our work at Humanergy is when a person reflects on what they’ve learned in their leadership journey. A recent coaching client remarked, “You know, I’ve always been a goal-oriented person. What I’ve learned is, until this year, my goals were about me. Yes, I put an organizational spin on it, but everyone knew that what mattered was what I was going to achieve. Now my goals are fully about the organization and its people. What will be the lasting impact for the greater good?”
Are your goals about you, about the broader organization or something outside of your personal success? That’s one of the keys to being a transformational leader.

Excellent post! It can be easy to forget what we should really be focusing on when setting our goals. Great point that this is key to being a transformational leader. Being the leader you should be is not just about your behaviors, for example.
