The Leadership DOJO – 1
Leaders must become all-rounders to enable better decision-making and to broaden their perspective and understanding of various issues.
Having a life doesn’t burn you up but rather energize you.
You learn so much from meeting different people which you can bring into the workplace.
You need to be good outside of your current job >> you can be the best person at your role, but to be truly world-class you need to have deep interest in other areas of the organization. You need to be able to integrate and collaborate and you can’t do that if you only know your part of the role.
Take on roles that nobody wants >> your biggest growth comes from taking on experiences in areas that you may not necessarily enjoy or be familiar with.
Work on your AQ (Adversity Quotient) >> when you get knocked down, you get up. Reinvent yourself to suit to the environment. When people give you feedback, listen and take note of the feedback. Feedback is a key growth mechanic. Take the feedback, regardless how nasty, and try to adapt and change for the better. Deal with adversity as it comes. The more the better.
Find your own mentors >> have tones of mentors. Go to different mentors to seek different advise. Get an informal mentor to share your journey with. Mentor make a huge difference. They teach you how to manage across levels and also enable you to see things you may not have seen.
You got to have a CAN DO attitude >> always stay on track and keep focused on solutions. If you are positive in life, people will enjoy hanging out with you. In order to achieve positivity, you should hang out with positive people too. But most importantly, always believe you can. Go out and achieve whatever you hope to achieve. Believe you can do it.
