(From the article)" Surround yourself with people you want to be and it's far less taxing to do what you should be doing.


In his excellent book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg says: "When people join groups where change seems possible, the potential for that change to occur becomes more real."

The Longevity Project, which studied over 1000 people from youth to death had this to say:

The groups you associate with often determine the type of person you become. For people who want improved health, association with other healthy people is usually the strongest and most direct path of change. [The Longevity Project]

And the research on friendship confirms this. From my interview with Carlin Flora, author ofFriendfluence:

Research shows over time, you develop the eating habits, health habits, and even career aspirations of those around you. If you're in a group of people who have really high goals for themselves you'll take on that same sense of seriousness.

You not only need warmth to win over people/gain the trust of your team, you also need competence to fight on their behalf and make things happen:-)

It takes maturity and humility and wisdom to grasp that oftentimes the best thing you can do with that spotlight is to put it on those around you, so that they blossom in ways they didn’t realize were possible … and so that your organization can benefit fully from their fully developed talents.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, July 3, 2014 9:39 AM

Wow, I absolutely love this article!

 

What a powerful message to remind us that leadership is not about us, it is about helping our teams shine. 

 

So today if the positive spotlight is turned on you, turn it back to the team and let them shine! 

 

What do you think?  Would love to learn from our experiences and observations....The SPOTLIGHT is on YOU:)

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

There is a lot of servant-leadership in this article. I thought about how often I heard School managers spoke using language that suggested ownership. For example, my School, my teachers, my leadership, etc as if they were the only ones who had a vision.
