No matter what your position is, what you do matters. If you are a leader in a senior position everything you do whether positive or negative has an exponential impact.
Leadership is all about pursuit of a future, better than the past. Are you aware of the future you are creating? Are you being intentional in your pursuit of that future? Everyone has good intentions, but are your intentions and impact lining up?
It can take years to build a great reputation but only about 5 minutes to take it down. Do you know what your 5 minute risk is?
Although it is probably one of the least discussed leadership competencies, self-awareness is possibly one of the most valuable. Self-awareness is being conscious of what you’re good at while acknowledging what you still have yet to learn. This includes admitting when you don’t have the answer and owning up to mistakes.
