Embrace a New Leadership Mindset by Facing 8 Critical Realities | Leadership to change our schools' cultures for the 21st Century | Scoop.it
As we enter the New Year together, this is the perfect time to reflect upon the ways we can mature and grow as leaders. With the economy beginning to show signs of life, leaders must take stock of their attitude, approach and style and identify ways to improve their performance for the betterment of the employees and the organizations they serve. This process begins by accepting the fact that you may need to adopt a new leadership mindset – a realization awakened by your past experiences, previously missed opportunities and the business trends that demand it.

A mindset shift requires you to break away from old behaviors and habits that may no longer be serving you effectively in your leadership. It demands that you escape your comfort zone and accept that complacency is doing you more harm than good. Adopting a new mindset is the first step in reinventing yourself as a leader, and ultimately regaining your competitive advantage, impact and influence.
