Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

Leadership is oftentimes equated with transformation. But transformation isn't something that happens overnight. Transformation is something that takes a long time.

It’s the small things that you do over time that will lead to great impact.

Here are small things that you can do to be a better leader:

1. Recognize your team members - it can be as simple as saying thank you.

2. Put together diverse teams.

3. Practice self care - you need to take care of yourself so that you can in turn, take care of others.

4. Practice empathy - putting yourself in somebody else's shoes and perspectives and then responding based on that.

5. Take time to be curious.

6. Be sure you are listening instead of just hearing your people.

The servant mindset is one of the four most crucial mindsets that current and aspiring leaders need to master.

It's all about serving four groups:

Your leaders - serving your leaders means having a good relationship with them. Do whatever you can to make their lives easier.

Your customers - it's about making life a little bit harder on yourself so that it's easier on your customers. Go above and beyond to surprise and delight your customers so they would love to come back and even become your own brand evangelists

Your team - whether it's recognizing them, whether it's removing obstacles from their path, whatever it is, ask yourself, what can you do on an ongoing basis to help make those around you more successful, even if they become more successful than you.

Yourself - this is what most of us forget about. Practicing self-care will enable you to show up to work every day, at your best, ready to serve others.

The world is rapidly changing to become more global and more dynamic.

Because of that, the global citizen mindset is one of the most important mindsets that business leaders need to have.

So what does it actually mean? It's composed of two things:

1.   Looking at the big picture.

2.   Surrounding yourself with people who are not like you.

The pandemic has forced a lot of organizations to shift into remote work.

Some people were skeptical about it, but there’s no doubt remote work allowed things to still get done.

Microsoft recently did a study on 61,000 of their employees.

They found that during the pandemic, employees were still able to get things done and be productive. However, long-term creativity actually went down.

So the question is, do we just want to get things done? Or do we want more?

This is why in-person work still has a place in our society.

That is where a lot of great leadership comes from. That's where psychological safety comes from. That's where training and development and growth comes from.

Asking for forgiveness is better than asking for permission.

If you ask for forgiveness, it means you’re proactively trying new things and can get things done quicker.

If you do things right, you probably won’t have to ask for forgiveness that often.

Instead of waiting for people’s decisions and asking for permission, take initiative and just ask for forgiveness.

Communication is one of the most important skills a leader could have.

If you don’t know how to communicate, then your message might not be received well by your people.

But there is one thing that you have to remember - Communication isn’t just about what you say. It’s also about how you say it.

Your demeanor, tone, or body language is just as important as the message itself.
