Things You Can Do Right Away
Being a leader isn’t about the position you’re in; you’ve got to put your guts into what you do. These are the three pillars of leadership Brad says it takes to be an influential in today’s culture
- Stay humble. An awareness of who you are is where it starts. You must have self awareness, that idea of being open to vulnerability, being honest and being transparent. It requires that you understand your calling and have the perspective of seeing your place in the story. As a humble leader, you’re content with where you are in the story; you’re confident in the place you’re supposed to be. Because if you’re not, the lack of humility will show up in the small things in your life. Being humble is a trait as a leader we’ve got to live out before we lead it. It’s a habit and a posture. Even if you’re leading something massive, there’s a bigger story going on than your church or organization. When you carry a humble posture, you’ll realize it’s not about you, and it alleviates the pressure you face.
- Be hungry. It’s the posture of consistent and ongoing learning, carrying the idea that you’ve never arrived. A leader may dominate in the industry, but someone who’s hungry is taking notes in meetings. They know that what you learn after you know it all is where it counts. Regardless of where you are in the process, you’ll always be teachable and wanting to know more. And a hungry leader is always curious. The key to curiosity isn’t just willing to learn new things, but a willingness to listen.
- Always hustle. This is the drive, your ambition. When you’re the person in the front, no longer are people willing to follow you because you’re in front. They’re willing to follow you because you’re willing to get into the ditch with them. If you’re not in the ditch with somebody getting your fingernails dirty, you’ve got to prove you’re willing to hustle with them. You’ve gotta be willing to move the ball into the end zone. If you’re not willing to make sure things are getting to completion, otherwise, you’re just walking around with a good idea.
