Personal leadership is the leadership of the self. It is not an academic exercise of finding the correct buzz words and phrases that make up your leadership philosophy.
Personal leadership involves a self-reflective journey within. It means you’ve made a conscious decision to be awake to your automatic reactions and behaviors.
Personal leadership means you are willing to look at situations as a “moment of choice” where you choose to reach higher, reflect on being your best, and discern the most effective way to proceed.
In order to optimize those “moments of choice” you must first find your inner compass. That compass is discovered through exploring your beliefs, values, experiences, strengths, and level of emotional intelligence. It is only after that exploration that you will begin the work of designing a vision or direction for your leadership and life.
Practicing personal leadership then is about moving with perseverance and persistence in the direction of the vision you created grounded in who you are and what you value.
I do not have a model to follow to build my personal leadership plan.
I need a plan for my personal leadership in order to execute the corporate goals.
I lack a creative way to communicate my vision for how I will lead my team or organization.
