President’s Day has never really meant a lot to me…except that we got out of school. I don’t know if it means a ton to you either.
Unless you’re a government worker, then you’re probably happy because you’re not working today either.
But since it’s President’s Day I thought I would ask the question:
How is our President doing?
However, that’s really a rhetorical question. You see, I want you to answer that, but mainly in your own mind.
How do YOU think he’s doing? After you have that question answered, I want you to ask another question:
What is the President’s job?
For me, it comes down to one word; lead! It’s our President’s job to lead this country. To lead our people. To lead our elected officials. His job is to lead. Now that you have that in mind, how is he doing?
Once again, not looking for you to answer below. Instead, I want you to now ask the question of the closest leader to you. By the way, that should be YOU. How are you doing as a leader?
If I asked all of those around you, what would they say? Would they support you? Would they fight for you? Would they proudly tell others of how you’ve blessed them? How you know their kids names? How you have made them a better person?
If not, you have to ask another question:
What is it that you’re doing, or NOT doing, that keeps your team from supporting you? You’ve heard me say it over and over – as a leader, it’s YOUR job to make your team successful, not the other way around. Click here cuz you know you wanna Tweet that!
So today, I want to know, if we called you your team’s president, how are you doing?
Question: What areas do you need to work on as a leader to get the support of your team?
