Hello, and welcome to the Leadership Done Right Podcast, Episode 63: 5 Tips For Leadership and Personal Progress.
Hello, hello! This week I was out with some friends and we were doing some off-roading in my truck. I stopped for a moment so we could look at some wildlife in the area.
When we decided to go again, I shifted the car and hit the gas. By accident, I shifted to neutral so I wasn’t going anywhere. I casually said to my friends, “Well, I can’t go anywhere without the car in gear. I can’t go back or forward.” To which my friend replied, “There’s a lot of good lessons we can take from that.” So what are some lessons we can learn from that?
There’s a lot of great lessons about progress. I want to focus this episode on what we can do in leadership to avoid being stuck in neutral. In leadership, we can’t be stuck in neutral. Instead, we need to be progressing to move forward!
In this episode, I will share five ways we can move forward in our leadership.
Leadership Tip of the Week
Create an agenda for your meetings and hold to it. The most ineffective meetings I have ever attended have been the ones where there was no agenda from the start. Everyone showed up to the meeting with different expectations which led to confusion, frustration, and ineffective meetings.
The agenda may seem insignificant or be overlooked, but it is extremely important for the success of the meeting. The agenda acts as a roadmap for the meeting. It provides direction and helps people stay on track.
An agenda should include the following:
- The date and time of the meeting
- The title of the meeting
- The end goals, purpose, and specific objectives of the meeting
- The meeting facilitator
- The person in charge of taking meeting minutes.
- The main points/topics that will be discussed
- The length of time you will talk about each topic
