  5. Maximizing YOUR Impact Lead • Leaders vs. Managers • Managers: title granted, task oriented, inward focus • Leaders: title earned, vision oriented, outward focus • Manage from the head, lead from the heart • Leadership Traits • Highly visible – no one has to be told who the leader is • Energetic • Speed – of the walk; leader determines pack • Builds Consensus – leaders create dialogue, not a monologue • Team Builder • Team entry – difficult to join • Team maintenance – culture corrects non-performers • Vision – turns a job into a cause – people quit jobs, die for causes • Covey – Begin with the end in mind

  7. Maximizing YOUR Impact Maintain a Positive Mental Attitude • Difference between man and animal is the 5 second gap that exists between what happens to us and how we respond to it. • Can’t control the world, can control how you respond to it. • Exercise: • What words would you use to describe yourself? • What words would others use to describe you? • Is there a difference? Why??? • Refrigerator in your mind • Mental trash • Issues – Write down concerns and revisit in 60 days - did it happen? • Peoples opinions – Only worry about the opinions of those who matter to you • Benchmark: measure against the best YOU, not against others

  8. Maximizing YOUR Impact Prioritize Your Time • Grid • Where do you spend your time? • Do you ignore what is important? • What determines your priorities? • The task? Or the Requester? • Covey “First Things First” • Voice in your head - I should, I should have - its never too late • Close the gap between knowing and doing • The power of NOW • If you can’t find the time to do it right, how are you going to take the time to do it over? • Finish it!

  9. Maximizing YOUR Impact Take Ownership • Direct the credit • When it goes right, give credit to the team • When it goes wrong, take the responsibility yourself • Don’t play the blame game • Finger pointing – 1 at them, 4 at you • Fix the problem, not the blame •  Decision making • Invite dissenting opinions – generate open discussion • Emerge with an agreed upon solution that ALL publicly support • Are you part of the problem or part of the solution? • Stand Out – Entitlement / Instant Gratification generation • Celebrate success • Recognize the little things – project completion, deal, birthdays

  10. Maximizing YOUR Impact Live With Integrity • Character • Non-negotiable • Like Steel – forged in heat, tested under pressure • Character is who you are when no one but God is watching • Leaders do what is right….not what is convenient • Anyone can hold the helm when the seas are calm • The Test - Would you still say it if they were standing next to you? • Praise in public, reprimand in private • When integrity defines you, decisions are easy
