Good Morning Thought Partners!

Do you blame, shame, or claim?

Life is challenging. Being a leader is difficult. We expect a lot from ourselves and others. Thank you, Captain Obvious. 

In response to these realities however, when you don’t show up like you need to, like you are expected to, or even like you want to, what is YOUR default reaction?

Do you blame, shame, or claim? (Psst…..There’s really only one right answer to this question.😉)

The late Jim Rohn said “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.”

This might hurt a little, so hold on tight…As a leader, everything is your fault. Yup. You have responsibility for every part of it and you have to CLAIM responsibility for all of it.

☞ Good or bad, success or failure, profit or loss; it all falls on you, Top Dog.

☞ It’s easy to say parts and pieces are not my responsibility, not my task, not my job.

☞ But as we look a little closer, you know we’ll find a place where action, on your part, probably would have changed the outcome.

When a team fails to win, it’s the Head Coach who gets fired. Right or wrong, they bear ultimate responsibility. As the head coach of your team are you taking ultimate responsibility?

Are you CLAIMING both the wins and the losses or are you BLAMING and SHAMING instead? Think on it for a minute; there’s no time like the present to get a new game plan if you think you could benefit from one.

Captain Obvious said being a leader is difficult. Jim Rohn said ”We have both the ability and the responsibility to make better choices beginning today.” 

There’s no better choice than leveling-up leadership, accountability and communication skills. Let’s talk more; I would love to help you and your team in that process. 📱
