Want to Go Places (Part 3)?
It has been said, “The person who keeps busy helping the one who is below him, won’t have time to envy the person who is above him.” The right attitude is absolutely essential to contentment in the middle of an organization. Indeed, leadership is more about disposition than position. With the right attitude and the right skills, you can influence others from wherever you are in the organization. You can develop an attitude of contentment and fulfillment for where you are in the organization by doing the following five things... 1. Develop strong relationships with key people: It’s more important to get along with people than it is to get ahead of them. If you make it your goal to reach out to others and build relationships with them, you will derive fulfillment wherever you are. And whatever you do, don’t give up too easily on others if at first you don’t like them or easily connect with them. You may be surprised by how, over time, a potential adversary can become an ally. 2. Define wins in terms of teamwork: Legendary basketball coach John Wooden said, “The main ingredient of stardom is the rest of the team.” In other words, teamwork is what creates success, and we shouldn’t lose sight of that. One player may be crucial to a team but one player cannot make a team. When I think of someone who created a win using teamwork, I think of John Wooden. Anyone who values teamwork, and saw Wooden's teams play, remembers them. More ideas on developing an attitude of contentment and fulfillment for where you are in the organization tomorrow...
