Do This Leadership Awareness Exercise

Do This Leadership Awareness Exercise

I made an excuse last week. 

I was running 30 minutes late to meet a friend and I told him it was because I had to drop my son off at sport. It was true. So it felt like an excuse.

Except when I really thought about it, it wasn't. The reason that sat behind my lateness was actually my time management. I could've dropped my son off earlier if I'd been better organised.

It reminded me about this leadership graph and how important it is to look yourself squarely in the eye and ask if you've done things below the line. It's not a guilt tripping exercise, it's an AWARENESS exercise. And it's a bloody good one.

The more you do it, the more you'll catch yourself before it happens. Before you know it - you're leading above the line.
