1 Question Every Leader Should Answer That Most Don’t

I spend a lot of time shaking up my clients’ thinking.

It’s fun to hear the wheels turn when you ask a provocative question.

So many leaders are going 90 mph they rarely stop to ask & answer the juicy questions.

One of my favorites: What drives you?

Don’t gloss over this one… it’s more profound than you might first think.

Psychologically, we each have an innate, biologically determined urge to attain a goal or satisfy a need. This innate need influences how we operate and control the direction and speed of our lives.

What drives you requires you to:

  • reflect on where you’ve been
  • evaluate where you are
  • predict where it is you might go. And why.

Spend a moment reflecting on who & what influenced you early on… how they influenced you early on… and how they might still be influencing you today.

Which of these influencers need to be thanked and which ones need to be tossed?

When we are very clear on how we satisfy our innermost needs and meet & exceed the goals that are significantly meaningful to us, the choices we need to make get pretty darn clear.

To being brilliant drivers of our lives,

P.S.

I’m driven to teach. It’s in my DNA.

If I won the lotto tomorrow, I’d travel more for fun of course, and I’d still teach.

And in this spirit – I’m teaching a brand new course on HOW TO BE A NATURAL LEADER.

Leaders are made not born, so you can absolutely learn the skills that will make you a HERO and having people exclaim, “You’re a natural leader!”

I’ve spent 20+ years teaching sales teams: “An objection is just an opening to close.” So last month in a room full of sales & marketing folks, one weary attendee said, “I’m so tired of hearing the word no.” I wasn’t having any of it. I literally.

Young Woman:  All our parents do is work. I’m not working that hard. Young Man:  Me neither. What’s the point? Young Woman:  I know, right? Life is supposed to be LIVED. To be fun. Young Man:  All that work for what? Young Woman:  I know, right? Young Man:  I’m hungry..
