GROUP ACTIVITY Choose a leadership practice. Brainstorm strategies for developing the practice. Present to the large group.
Challenging the Process Take risks and honor others who do. Question the way things are done and suggest new systems and procedures. Treat each assignment as a chance to make things change for the better in an organization. Find something broken and fix it.
Inspiring a Shared Vision Know others- enlist their support by appealing to their values, interests, hopes and dreams. Orient your thinking to the future. Hold an image of the end result. Create a succinct statement or presentation about what you are trying to accomplish.
Enabling Others to Act Always say “we.” Delegate to others and help them succeed. Involve people in planning and problem solving. Build up others. Create a climate of trust. Share information and power. Focus on gains rather than losses.
Modeling the Way Lead others where you are also willing to go. Know your own basic set of values and talk to people about them. Do what you say you are going to do. Walk the halls. Encourage ethical behavior. Establish norms about hard work and caring. Decrease job stress and tension.
Encouraging the Heart Say “thank you.” Celebrate team accomplishments. Install a systematic process to reward performance. Be creative about rewards. Make recognition public. Look for people doing something right.
Leading From Within It takes courage to examine one’s inner life. LPI is one way to expand self-examination and growth. The journey is downward and inward.
