Your intentions are the starting point of every journey. A working definition for intention is: “To have in mind a purpose or plan, to direct the mind, to aim.” Your intentions will assist you in taking greater control of your life. Lacking intention, you will stray or drift without meaning or direction. Our intentions are the force that fulfils all of our needs, whether it is money, relationships, health or love. Our destiny is shaped by the deepest level of our intentions and desires.
Leadership is not just a style or a methodology, but an alignment of your values and purpose with your business.
Your intentions are states of being and desire. Your intentions are your higher ideals and must be the reason for any of your specific goals. Let’s cast aside all the management and leadership speak and get down to brass tacks. To be a great leader you first have to address the question; ‘Am I working daily on myself to meet my needs to be a fulfiled person?’. Once you have that conversation with yourself you start to understand what type of leader you are and what type you want to be.
Great businesses need and demand great leaders.
To be a great leader there are many skills that you can acquire – but there are few more valuable than empathy, awareness and a strong set of values. A leader inspires, drives change and innovation, culture and is strong during success and failure.
If you want to grow your business, grow it your way.
External influence is a critical part of any entrepreneur’s journey but as sure as the sun will rise not all voices will be positive or beneficial. If you deeply understand why you are in business be true to your vision and seek the right help.
