Your leadership compass

The quality of life and leadership is built by the choices we make – small and large – everyday. How do you have a meaningful life and strive to be a great leader?

Begin by reflecting on the “best” of you – your thinking, Your understanding of reality and the person you strive to become. These insights inform the compass that guides how you live and lead.

Developing your compass requires a commitment of time. Reflect on your experiences, beliefs, instincts and goals. If you do it right, your compass feels authentic as your crystallized wisdom that strengthens judgment, decisions and actions.

The compass includes:

Success. What are you trying to achieve? What impact do you desire to have?

Sacred Principles. What are the non-negotiables? What is completely off the table when it comes to your actions and decisions?

Values. What principles will guide your decision-making and action?

What works. What thinking and actions will deliver success – and align with what’s sacred and valued?

Humanergy’s leadership compass? We are passionately committed to the greater good. (Yep, even in corporations!) We bring the character, wisdom and competence to achieve it.

What’s yours?

  1. Nearly every day we either see a news story, or hear about someone who has taken their leadership responsibility and laid a path of destruction, waste and pain through their organization or their community…all under the guise of “leadership.”
    What saddens me most is the often-heard message that what has happened was “not my fault.” This is communicated in a number of ways, but the bottom line is a lack of personal responsibility as it relates to the role of the leader.
    Alternatively, there are many stories of leadership as an art form–brilliant, committed, dedicated individuals who understand the role of service in leadership.
    There is a desperate need for leaders who engage their followers from a place of “centeredness.” The concept of the leadership compass is a good one because it gives leaders a place to being asking themselves the difficult questions.
    If leaders would “begin with the end in mind” and ask “what will my legacy be?” they may discover that their actions today don’t support their own expectations of how they want to be remembered.
    The good news is that, as leaders, we have the opportunity to change–be better, do better–and that we can begin right now to make those improvements. Setting aside the ego message of “I am king/queen” and asking “How can I best serve those I am responsible for?” may help lead us in the direction of authenticy, wisdom and ultimately, positive leadership for an improved organization and community. I remain hopeful…
