We need to draw out and leverage the unique talents within our organization so we can make a difference and improve levels of engagement (studies report that 73% of staff is not engaged)
Making a difference starts with CLARITY and it starts with YOU.
Since YOU are in control of ensuring CLARITY exists, we’ll go in reverse order:
Y – How would YOU define your leadership skills? Would they be aligned with the perceptions and feedback others provide?
T – Are you able to build (and maintain) TRUSTing relationships with colleagues, direct reports, and partners?
I – Integrity is said to be the most-mentioned corporate value; do you live those values?
R – Are your desired results directly linked to your vision, mission, goals, and behaviors?
A – Is your delivery authentic? Are your behaviors aligned with your expectations? Would others say you’re the “real deal”?
L – Do you truly listen (not just hear) what others say? Are you open to changing your mind, approach, and strategies if new information or opinions are shared with you?
C – Do you consistently communicate and do you confirm your message is understood?
Thomas Leonard sums it up nicely: Clarity affords focus (and focus increases engagement which brings results!)
If you want to help somebody, make sure you’re coming from a place of clarity and complete non-judgment; that way, you can begin to understand their journey, too.—Mary Lambert
