I’ve been reading the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell. This book speaks to me as an entrepreneur and leader of my amazing skin care team! There are nuggets of wisdom that I can apply to being a leader that will help my team continue to succeed and grow. The lessons in this book are those that I practice in my leadership role. As some of you know, one of my passions in life is to help others live life to its fullest, no matter their age. This book has given me the tools to do this even more efficiently. I want to share a few of the 21 laws that I believe are the reason my team continues to thrive.
The Law of Connection
Maxwell says, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” My goal is to have a personal relationship with each of my team members before they become part of my team. I believe listening is a powerful way to connect with people; it shows them you care about their hopes, dreams and burning desires.
The Law of the Picture
Those who follow are always watching what their leaders do. – John C. Maxwell.
I routinely ask myself, “Is what I’m doing going to result in others achieving success by following my example?” My job as a leader is to model the actions that people can see and follow that lead to success. When my team members have questions about what works, I willingly share what works for me, how I do it, and help them see the potential for themselves.
The Law of the Inner Circle
Leaders don’t succeed alone! It’s important to surround yourself with others who share your passion, drive, and commitment. It is also important to surround yourself with talented people who excel at different skills than you. I’ve surrounded myself with individuals who inspire me to be a better person and a better leader!
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership has even more to offer! I encourage you to read it for yourself, become inspired, and become a better leader in whatever you do!
