The difference between average and excellent is, literally a matter of moments.—Lee J. Colan
Not only are we advocates of continual learning, we actively live (and pursue it)! One aspect of this includes reading and listening to the ideas of others.
Lee J. Colan wrote 7 Moments …That Define Excellent Leaders; we’d like to share some of his ideas that are both simple yet powerful.
The 7 MOMENTS ARE:
#1 A Moment To Commit – Think Excellence, Create A Compelling Cause, Secure Your Foundation
#2 A Moment To Plan – Set A Vision, Know and Optimize Your Sweet Spot
#3 A Moment To Act – Check Your Focus, Treasure Your Resources, Make Real-Time Decisions
#4 A Moment To Connect – Look Beyond Your Staff, Cultivate Your Network, Ritualize Your Team
#5 A Moment To Invest – Inspire Future Leaders, Live Your Legacy, Exercise Your Brain
#6 A Moment To Change – Delight In Discomfort, Know Fear, Multiply Your Power Of One
#7 A Moment To Conquer – Move Through Adversity, Take Your Stand, Secure Your Foundation
Excellent leaders don’t limit defining key moments for themselves, they also provide opportunities for their team to create their own defining moments. AND, they provide feedback and guidance that adds to levels of excellence.
How are you helping others define their “key moments”?
