Leadership: UP Your Leadership

Lead Yourself First
A manager oversees tasks, whereas a leader inspires
people. The effective leader is the individual who has
mastered themselves.

What is leadership? You must first look in the mirror
and ask yourself: what inspires me? Armed with
answer in hand, it becomes your responsibility to share
that inspiration with your team.

Create a hero in your workplace, at home, or in the
community. Your legacy will not come from the number
of followers you create, but rather, the number of
leaders you mold! ~ Jerry Dollar

Know People & Personalities
An effective leader is one that knows their people
inside and out- and personality is a critical part of
'knowing'. When you know the personality types and
traits of your staff and direct reports, you can more
effectively communicate with and motivate them. You'll
know how to bring out their best and how to encourage
them to overcome their challenges. You'll also be able
to compose better-functioning teams, because you'll
have the correct balance of skills and personalities to
ensure success. ~ Dianne Daniels

A Matter of R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Ask any great leader their preference when it comes
to being “liked” or being “respected” and 9 times out of
10, they’ll say respected. As a leader, you should
strive to be respected by those who look up to you. If
you are an exceptionally gifted professional, you will
garner not only the respect of your subordinates and
peers, but also their esteem and admiration. ~ Dr.
Madeline Lewis

an impact on their profits and income.
Ensure you do this while you are questioning Be Specific With The Benefits
effectively, and make sure they agree with the
analysis you have worked out. The benefits must be worth more to the
customer than the price.

The best way to do this is to get the customer to
quantify the specific financial impact of your
differentiators on the finances of the problem.

You might quantify how much the customer will
save with you rather than your competitor’s
product, or the value of the time they will save if
they use your services rather than anyone

Following these ideas makes the customer think
of the financial impact of NOT going with you,
rather than the price of doing so.

If you can get the customer thinking this way,
not only will the price not be top of their agenda,
but the value of what you have will be that much
greater to them.

Health Wise:

If you’re looking for the perfect healthy
post-dinner treat, look no further!

Peppermint tea has been used for
centuries to aid digestion. Studies have
shown that it helps relieve gas and
bloating, and can reduce heartburn and
indigestion as well. It’s also delicious!

Ending your meal peppermint tea really
hits the sweet spot without adding any
extra sugar to your meal. It’s zero calorie,
naturally caffeine-free, and doesn’t
contain any sugar.

Choose a peppermint tea that contains
only peppermint; be sure it doesn’t
contain any additives or caffeine.

Human Resource: Building Positive Workplace Climate Part 1/4

Promote positive communication— Authentically model the type of communication that you believe contributes
to a healthy climate. Encourage conversations about what positive communication looks like on your team.
Different cultural reference points and varied life experiences means that not everyone defines positive
communication in the same way.

Let your employees know they are valued and appreciated— Find small and meaningful ways to say thank
you and recognize outstanding work. A public “thank you,” a thank you card, a $5 coffee card, a lunch out, a nice
piece of chocolate are examples of small recognitions that communicate a big message.
