Why your purpose in leadership matters so much…

leadership purpose success Nov 24, 2020

Dear Friend,

To conclude our series on leadership, I would like to focus on purpose in leadership.

The purpose of our lives is more compelling than personal fulfillment, peace of mind, or happiness. It defines our legacy: the way we shape people’s lives today and the impact we leave behind when we’re gone. It gives clearer, sharper definition to our reason for getting up each morning. Every leader must understand this.

It is not enough to have a title or coordinate a group of people. Ask yourself:

  • What is your purpose and that of your organization?
  • Does the purpose of your organization align with your personal purpose and value?
  • How far are you willing to go to achieve your mission(s)?

Leadership without a sense of direction or purpose is sure to give birth to mediocrity. When we are driven by purpose, we look for meaning in what we do and try to create enrichment and happiness in our lives and the lives of others. In that sense, purpose means identifying our reason...

There’s no easy way out in leadership. Here’s why…

hard work Nov 17, 2020

Dear Friend,

Today, I will be sharing a leadership quality that is not focused on enough in leadership circles: hard work. People often get carried away with the benefits of being leaders and forget that leadership requires a lot of work—a lot of hard work.

To truly excel in leadership, you must be prepared to take on several roles, and you must be dedicated to delivering consistently positive results in line with the mission of your organization. You must understand that there’s hard work that only the leader can (and must) do!

You cannot afford to be a leader who’s reluctant to get your hands dirty, and you can’t act as a bystander, watching others do the work for you. Likewise, you should not be the leader who is always looking for the easy way out. In leadership, there is no easy way out—only hard work!

A hardworking leader sets an example for the team so that they dedicate themselves to achieving set goals. It is no secret that leadership is...

Why mentorship is essential for leaders…

mentorship Nov 10, 2020

Dear Friend,

In our last letter, we highlighted one of the most important pillars of leadership: winning and maintaining the trust of people. In this letter, I will be sharing another important tip for the journey of leadership: getting mentorship.

Like winning people’s trust, getting mentorship is something that should start long before you occupy any leadership position. Personally, I believe that everyone—whether you have leadership goals or not—should have a mentor to help them navigate life. Look at it like this: there are things you know about life now that you did not know 10 years ago, or even 5 years ago. Imagine that you could sit down with your future self and ask for advice. You would have wise and valuable insights to share with your current self, inspired by your experiences. This is the beauty of mentorship: it prepares you for the future and ensures that you don’t have to make certain mistakes.

Mentorship in leadership is essential. It enables...

The first step to more effective leadership…

effective leadership Nov 03, 2020

We can both agree that leadership is hard work. It doesn’t matter if you’re leading two people or a thousand people—leadership stretches you more than you can imagine.

This is why preparation is important in every level you attain as a leader. You have to prepare before, during, and for each stage of leadership. How? I have some tips, and I will share one every week in November so we can discuss in detail.

Leadership requires trust—hence, the first step is winning people’s trust. This starts before you actually take on a leadership role. You have to be genuinely passionate about people in order to be a leader. If you can’t help but try to figure out how to make people’s lives easier and better, you might have a call to leadership. People choose leaders they feel have the desire to make lives easier and better. Thus, the process of gaining people’s trust is not a day’s job, or a selfish one.

Likewise, your team will be loyal and...

Why finding your purpose isn’t enough…

mission purpose vision Oct 27, 2020

Knowing your mission, vision, and purpose is not enough.

Yes, going through your life without knowing these things is like shooting a gun before aiming. Everything we do before discovering them seems random and unrelated. We start in one direction and stay with it until something else seems better. Then, we jump over to the next thing, and the next, and the next. Knowing our purpose produces confidence that we know where we’re going.

However, we must understand that finding our purpose is one thing; working at it—challenges notwithstanding—is another. Our purpose becomes clearer as we experience successes and failures, try new skills, and find roles that make us feel alive. Hence, giving up is not an option.

As we walk the path of purpose to fulfillment, we will experience challenges, setbacks, and failures; however, the difference between experiencing the fullness of your purpose and living a life of regret comes with perseverance.
