Self -Evaluate Before Making Leadership Decisions
QUESTION THAT EVERY LEADER SHOULD ASK
Have you ever noticed that great leaders ask a lot of questions? They realize that asking questions is part of being a good critical thinker. These leaders also have the courage to ask key questions of themselves. In doing so, they uncover their singleness of purpose that gives them a measuring device for their performance. Great leaders determine “what” they are doing, “why” they are doing it and “where” they fit into the mission. These people are courageous in self -evaluation revealing the true personal values and weaknesses. They lead with maturity and not insecurity.
Leaders Values Guide Behaviors
In the day-to-day routine of being a leader, values are put to the test. In the heat of the moment, a leader can choose to respond emotionally to the situation or react as a great leader would. Having the mindset of a great leader raises them above the circumstances and reveals their true motive in decision-making. These leaders ask a single question that prompts a series of other guiding questions and behaviors. They ask themselves- “what would a great leader do?”
The question, “what would a great leader do,” reveals their core values and motives. Would the particular action- taking in leading, further the mission of the organization or is it self- serving in furthering a personal agenda? Would the actions of the leader make the organization superior to the competition or create a set back?
This personal insight gives the leader clarity into how they should behave. It raises their leadership above the circumstance at play. It reveals their true motive and ultimately any weaknesses that is holding them back from becoming a great leader. Getting outside of the comfort zone isn’t for the faint of heart however. It requires that the leader be mature in processing information. Taking this journey will be well worth it in advancing leadership skills and furthering the organization’s mission.
