This message is short and sweet—but potent for you as a leader if you want to be at your best.
You’ll notice that when you focus on any of the three behaviours below, you’ll develop hugely useful insights into your leadership and create opportunities for you to accelerate towards being first-class.
Already good leaders become even-better leaders when they boost their behaviours in just one of the three categories. How would it be if you moved up a gear in all three?
How would you be thinking if you scored 10/10 on courage?
What would you be doing differently if you were entirely courageous?
What about the most awkward of conflicts—what would impressive courage look like with them?
What sorts of thoughts would you have with 10/10 humility?
In which situations do you have scope to be more humble?
Specifically, which of your behaviours would change if you amplified your humility?
When discipline is needed, how much discipline do you have?
Rigour, application, consistency, control, follow-through. How would others perceive your behaviours?
In which areas of your work would greater discipline pay off?
Your Action Steps
Considering 10/10 is the ideal for each of the three trademarks—which of your scores are high—and which could do with attention?
Our most important question is this…
What important next step will you take, with either courage, humility or discipline, that’ll be a giant step forward towards you being a 10/10, first–class leader?
“I really valued being able to run scenarios of possibilities
through with someone who was not directly inside the business.
And having a sounding board for why an action could be
perceived a different way from that viewed my myself.
Really appreciated your help with these things Carolyn.
It was great to have a navigator to share the journey with.”
