Enhance Your Leadership Across The Board

Updated on May 8, 2016

I think that health is one of the most underrated keys to success in existence. The benefits are difficult to deny:

  • Improved Clarity
  • Longer Performance
  • Presence
  • Command

From my experience I have seen the changes first hand when I made subtle tweaks to my lifestyle. Tweaks that pushed me performance from good to great.

Here are a few tips that can help boost your performance.

Wake Up Earlier

It sounds simple, but can have a profound impact on performance. In my experience I have yet to run across a high value leader who doesn’t rise early.

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” – Benjamin Franklin

Listen For Aspiration

The best way to exhibit emotional intelligence – is to listen. Even if you have the best answer taking the teams feedback into consideration will broker trust.

Bring People to Your Way of Thinking

When leadership sets the pace for the team’s production the results rub off on the group. Over time you will begin to see key players emulate your productive behavior.

The aforementioned tips are subtle and may even seem easy to incorporate. Nonetheless, in most instances new habits require time to take root.

It [tends to] require a minimum of about 21 days for an old mental image to dissolve and a new one to jell.” – Maxwell Maltz

That said, Let’s look at some of the benefits of implementing these techniques once they become habit:

Work at a High Level Longer

When you put your health on par with your aspirations you are setting the stage for success. Rolling on all cylinders puts a strain on your mind and body which is aided by peak fitness and mental acuity. In addition, leaders who prioritize health will recover faster and generally be less stressed.

Be More Approachable

Open door policies have been known to remove barriers & make an immediate impact on morale.

The days of leading through intimidation are gone – today associates are looking for emotional intelligence over bravado and leaders with a clear state of mind are primed to create environments that promotes candor.

Leave a Stronger First Impression

You only get 1 shot at it. So why not make the most of it? Today, more than ever – your clients and associates are bombarded with messages. That said, presenting yourself in the best light physically, stylistically and intellectually can be the factors which allow you to stand out in a crowd full of competitors.

Get More Enjoyment Out of Your Work

When you bring a sound mind and body to the table your quality of work and life will improve. Providing you with the added energy and stamina required to achieve peak results.

Time well spent results in more money to spend, more money to save, and more time to vacation.”

Create Accountable Teams

Leaders who appear more powerful to their peers leave a lasting impression on their internal and external customers. Strong impressions resonate with teams and consequently help to foster accountability amongst subordinates.

The aforementioned are just a few of the benefits you will receive when bringing a healthy and alert approach to your brand of leadership. In most instances, the benefits will be limitless. Allowing leaders who prioritize health and wellness to lead from the front and by example.
