Thought of the Week - 8/3/09

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." -- Abraham Lincoln


What are the biggest challenges you face when placed in a leadership or supervisory position?

How have you dealt with the pressures that come along with leadership?

As Servant Leaders, we must be continuously asking ourselves how are we doing as leaders/supervisors? We need to ask ourselves how we can be better at what we do. We need to identify what changes we need to make in order to better serve both our staff and our organization.

It is critical for the success of any leader to take precious time to evaluate themselves. As leaders and supervisors we need to find consistent ways to look at our strengths and our weaknesses. More importantly, once we have assessed and evaluated ourselves we need to make a conscious decision to do something productive and meaningful with the information we receive.

Are you willing to look at yourself honestly?

Do you have the desire to improve?
