Living at the Next Level, Leaders Edition

leadership next level Dec 08, 2020

Leaders need their own sense of right and wrong and the stabilization produced by their own moral compass. Our decisions can’t be made based upon public opinion or even the convictions of others. Leaders are tasked with helping people find their way and as guides, we must know our way. The leader has and will not reach perfection but must know his/her way well enough to correct their path when they drift. Leaders can’t guide skillfully without the skills derived from their walk, skills that are refined as they recover from the battles of life.

Thus, we must learn to lead ourselves, especially in areas of morality. This will never be achieved by just following a code or list of rules. Building strong relationships with like-minded mentors and leaders who can serve as accountability partners can go a long way in ensuring you are kept in check.

In my new book, Living at the Next Level, Leaders Edition, my goal is to help you establish your compass by building a relationship...

The Value of Relationships

relationships Dec 01, 2020

If the past few months have taught us anything, it’s the value of relationships. In many ways, it feels like everything has shifted and remains in flux. Many of the norms we built our lives around are no longer considered normal or dependable.

However, there is one constant, when relationships are strong and resilient, they outlast injustice, questionable leadership at the highest levels, and a global pandemic. My real friends are still my real friends. Crisis has taught me the value of friendships and still, none of those friendships have been as valuable as my friendship with God.

Leaders who effectively understand that there are three things that our relationship with God provides for us that are impossible to find elsewhere. They are a moral compass, inspiration, and a sense of belonging. Leading is challenging, and without direction and emotional strength, it can be overwhelming.

As you expand your leadership effectiveness in the coming year, think beyond just the...

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...
