Leading Yourself First

Leading others may be front of mind when most think of leadership, but leading yourself first is the foundation a true leader builds on.

 

In today’s episode of Come Rain or Shine, I share a recent personal situation that had the potential to be life-altering. The crisis was averted because I chose to listen to my spouse and lead myself, but there are some key takeaways that any leader can learn from.

 

  • Listen to your spouse
  • If your chest hurts, pay attention
  • Listen to your spouse
  • Your diet and fitness will only get you so far
  • Listen to your spouse
  • Start exercising and make it a point to get your heart rate up periodically
  • Listen to your spouse

 

In my upcoming book, How’s the Culture of Your Kingdom (releasing August 11th), I break leadership into three sections: lead yourself, lead your team and lead your organization. By leading yourself, you are laying the foundation to create a culture of security and trust for those following you.
