Since the pandemic started, I know many of you have felt burned out and exhausted physically and emotionally at times. I know I have, which can decrease productivity. Don’t worry. Help is on the way!
It’s been a long stretch of disruptions, hasn’t it? For me, it certainly has. If you’ve cruised through the last two crazy years of the most challenging time in our history, and you’re “crushing it” in your fitness, your business, and your life, good for you!
I wish that was true for everyone.
If you’re like most of us, it’s been a time of unexpected change and reflection because everything is different from what we were expecting.
If your goals for 2022 started out with wanting to live a healthier lifestyle, have more energy, or make more money, there is good news: a breakthrough is still possible for you. You still have time!
To be an effective leader, you must lead yourself first.
Disruption is never easy, especially in all areas of our lives.
Maybe you’re concerned about your health or relationships?
Or your weight has crept up, and your fitness has dropped in the ranks of your priorities.
It’s time to seize this opportunity to make the changes you want to make and move the needle in the right direction.
5 Power Habits of a Great Leader for High Performance in Difficult Times
#1 – Have a Bulletproof Mindset to Up-Level Your Inner Game
Mastering the skill of self-leadership starts with mastering your mind. Self-leadership is about constantly developing your inner game, which is your mindset, and your outer game, which is action. Achieving mastery in all aspects of your inner game is your intention, self-awareness, confidence, and belief in yourself, and your outer game consists of influence and impact. A bulletproof mindset helps you lead with agility, creativity, and empathy.
#2 – To control your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, you must have Emotional Intelligence.
Emotional maturity skills help you respond to challenges in positive and efficient ways rather than reacting to them. A response is a deliberate, thought-out plan to address a challenge, while a reaction is a spontaneous outburst. Oh come on. I know we’ve all been there. Perfection isn’t possible. A reaction is driven by emotion, and a response is driven by logic or reasoning.
#3 – Self-Leadership
Top high performers have self-leadership. Be the CEO of your life with self-leadership. This is the practice of intentionally influencing your thoughts, feelings, and actions towards your goals.
This gives you the ability to lead yourself to achieve your personal and big professional goals. It involves having a good perspective on who you are, where you want to go, and what you can accomplish.
#4 – Top high performers lead with influence
Influence is another essential characteristic of high performers. As an effective leader, you have more influence over others because your beliefs and actions align with your values. You inspire the people that you influence to work harder to achieve the success that you’ve accomplished.
As a great leader, you need to have the ability to lead your team by example. This is the result of intentional action. Through self-awareness and self-confidence, you increase your capacity to influence. Because when you yourself are grounded, you can focus on others and what’s best for them. You can have a positive impact on yourself and the world around you in times of change.
This means great leadership begins with self-leadership skills.
If you can control your own emotions, thoughts, and behavior in these challenging times to accomplish personal goals, this translates as a positive influence on those around you.
#5 – Curiosity Learning & Personal Development.
To harness the power of personal development, you need a passion for learning and a sense of curiosity. Almost all great leaders love learning and are curious. Curiosity helps you close any knowledge gaps, which makes you more competent. It also inspires you to find new ways to solve old problems.
High-performance leadership is all about personal growth and becoming a better leader. It’s about being honest with yourself, not self-criticism. It’s about recognizing what you’re doing that is and isn’t working and how you can make positive changes.
Self-growth is about striving to continuously improve yourself. It requires being open to feedback and creating a plan to keep you accountable and on track. Committing to self-growth can have a positive impact on your career and help you lead by example for those around you.
Again, the 5 power habits of a great leader are having a bulletproof mindset, emotional intelligence, self-leadership, influence, learning and personal development.
