Leadership begins with you

Happy Monday everyone! 

I participated in a three-day leadership training seminar and learned a lot about me.  Yeah, I won't bore you with my history, but here are some quick tidbits of information I took away from it.

  • Leadership begins with YOU!  
  • Lead others and manage yourself. It is a continuous process. 
  • Figure out what renews you... 
  • Lead by example 
  • Always have personal goals for improvement. 
  • Great leaders know what they value, make decisions, and take a stand.
  •  Leadership means collaboration.
 What does leadership mean to you?


  1. Personal goals for improvement of leader are always necessary!!

    leader has to lead himself also!!

  2. Thanks for sharing! I've always said being a good role model is the best way to lead.

  3. Ooh, the continuous process statement is such a good point!

  4. I think those things are important and I think setting the example (like you listed) is so important and not being afraid to let others do work.

  5. Leadership also means that you know when to 'lead' and you know when to 'follow' :-D and it's never as easy as some people make it look.

  6. Awesome additions! Sometimes we miss humility. LM is right about that.


  7. I'm on the Campaign Trail, stopping in to say hello (Hi! *waves*), give you a follow, and let you know I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

    It sounds like you got a lot of the leadership seminar. :)

    Have a lovely week,

  8. One of my mentors always said a successful leader never forgets to give credit to his/her followers.

  9. Being a good role model, constantly striving to improve, and everything you mentioned in your post...all of related to good leadership in my opinion

  10. What an inspiring post! I loved all the tips here! I agree with Christine in being a good role model by leading through example. Being an example is the most powerful, in my opinion, of all forms of leadership!

    Who wants to follow a leader who says you can't do this or that when he does exactly that?? :P
