A closed an unbalanced mindset will look to blame others for their failures.
They use this predisposed narrative to convince themselves that other people are responsible for their success.
Here’s 5 practical tools:

- Brainstorm with others. Put your ideas on the table and encourage the team to build on, improve, or toss the ideas out as appropriate.
- Meet unspoken needs. Recognize when someone is struggling with an emotion, and connect with a word of encouragement and support.
- Listen. Don’t merely listen to pickup on what you expect to hear; to formulate a response.
🤔Listen to understand.
❓Ask clarifying questions.

Complacency stalls brilliance, kills innovation, and creates friction within teams.
Leadership agility catalysts are the changemakers.
The incremental stages of growth are not massive. Each phase on leadership multiplication is the scaffolding for building knowledge.

I put my experience on display because Im passionate that leadership skills are scalable. Our posts are not superficial.
Like many of you, I am challenge by the many faces of mindset. They present themselves in many forms.
I like to call these “the 4 mini-me’s” and they manifest themselves in different ways.
👺The 1st is the “Doubtful Devil”. He’s always at the ready to challenge my mindset. Frequently presenting arguments to challenge my qualifications.
🕺The 2nd is the “Distracted Daydreamer”. He’s the silent one. Sending reminders to relax, take it easy, and enjoy some social media distractions. Trying to Pull me out of focus and into comfort.
🆕The 3rd is the most fun. The “Determined Daredevil”. He encourages me to try new things, puts me in uncomfortable situations and embraces failure with a winners mindset. Fueling my insatiable desire for growth!
🎯The 4th is my favorite, “Boundless Believer”. He’s my superpower. Giving me the courage, strength, and limitless energy to contribute and to multiply leadership.
Your responsibility is to manage your mini-me’s. To own the stories they tell you and to drown out the dissension!
Keep moving forward. 🚶
We are at the crossroads of resistance and persistence. The winner is the mind that grabs the steering wheel and presses on the gas!
👊🏼Embrace the grind.
😉Enjoy the journey.
Credibility, relationships, followed by focusing on logical work.
Greek Philosphy of influence:
🏦Ethos: is your personal credibility — how people view you, whether they believe what you say.
😑Pathos: is about feelings and relationships. It’s being emotionally in tune with others and their needs.
🤓Logos: is about logic — whether you are rational in the work you do with people.
