Unless you do the right things the right things will not happen to you. Great leaders are shaped by overcoming insurmountable challenges. Doing the right thing demands that you have a clear motive and take instructions from your consciousness, and never from impulsive emotions triggered by other people’s shortcomings.
Being a leader means striving for the ultimate within the area that you work, and not being held back by believing only in what you think you are capable of – or what you think you are not capable of.
One’s title – whether one is a director, manager, or leader – does not detract from the responsibility of being “a decent human being”.
As a leader you are wasting your time believing that you are capable of being the best at everything. You must make a choice about what you really want to do. Prioritise. Become the best at one thing, and not mediocre at many.
The only way to gain control of your life is to be more flexible than your environment. This entails gaining increased insight about yourself, your successes, your strengths, what you like to do, what you are excellent at doing, and how others perceive you. At KF Andersen Leadership Academy we enable you to gain this insight and thereby allow you to explore your full potential.
As a leader there is a huge difference between what you like to do, and what you need to do. Only by doing what needs to be done, will you turn into a great leader.
As a high potential leader all of your forward momentum depends on the things you learn and how well you learn them. Have the humbleness to accept that there is always something more to know and that many people know more than you do.
What are your unique strengths? Research shows that the more you use and build on your unique strengths at work, the happier and more productive you are. At KF Andersen Leadership Academy we focus on identifying and enhancing these unique strengths.
As a high-potential leader, you may love the realm of big ideas, but it is essential to conncect the big picture vision with the ground-floor execution. By shifting your thinking from high-level strategy to the specifics of how to make it happen, you enhance your own mental capabilities as well as your value to your company.
