Today we’re going to explore leadership habits – the routines and disciplines we all have that either help or hinder our leadership impact. “The good news is that leadership is a set of skills and behaviours that we can all learn and develop.”

Today we’re going to explore leadership habits – the routines and disciplines we all have that either help or hinder our leadership impact.

“The good news is that leadership is a set of skills and behaviours that we can all learn and develop.”

Leadership is what we do every day that helps us to achieve results through people. And psychology has taught us a lot about how to change our behaviours and to develop new skills.

“Those other people are not here, so we can’t do anything about them.  What we need to work on is you”

If you want to make a change to your habits and routines, the first thing you need to do is look at what you already do and decide what you want to do differently, what you want to change .

In the same way, we can have healthy and unhealthy leadership habits that we can identify through feedback and by paying attention to how we’re spending our time.

When you’ve identified habits you want to change, or new habits you want to develop – involve others. Their feedback and encouragement will make all the difference.
