What really changed in the last year? Did you really grow? Did you really raise your game? Did you really raise the lid on your leadership? Or...if we’re honest...was it largely more of the same? After coaching leaders for nearly fifteen years, when it comes to change, I am convinced of this one truth:
Growth is not automatic. Growth is always intentional.
Why aren’t most people growing? They don't have a plan for growth. They are not being intentional about it. Growth comes in asking and answering questions like:
- Where do I want to go?
- Who do I want to become?
- What do I want to achieve?
- What do I need to be doing to get there?
- How will I know if I’m getting there?
- Who can I ask to hold me accountable?
Hope is not a strategy. A strategy is a strategy! We need a strategy. We need a plan. We need tools. We need perspective. We need accountability. We need mentors. We need a coach.
I don’t have a coach. I have three or four at any given moment. I know the difference that coaching has made and is making in my life. I'm not the perfect leader, either, but I can honestly tell you that I am better than last year. Next year I will be better than this year. Why? I'm seeking outside perspective. I am developing a plan. I'm being held accountable to work the plan!
I believe every leader needs a coach. Do you have a coach? Do you have a plan for growth?
At CourageToLead, we CAN help you with this...whether you’re in the middle of a startup, or lead a large organization or ministry. One of the most genius-by-mistake things we have done is scale our ministry for both small and large organizations.
I would love to help. I feel CALLED to help. I have been coaching leaders for nearly fifteen years now. I know what it will take. I know how to help you get to the next level. Take a chance.
Don’t be in the same place next year. Get a plan. Get help. Get encouragement. Get accountability. Get better this year!
