Without trust, there is no relationship. People will genuinely connect with you when authenticity, vulnerability, and honesty are at the core of the relationship. The exceptional leaders, coaches, managers, executives, colleagues, partners, and friends earn trust, respect, buy-in, and stay in. They master creating opportunities for all parties to engage in lifelong learning and discovery, realizing when they stop changing, they halt their growth individually and collectively.
Those who are continually growing, developing their craft and improving their performance live with intention and strategy. These individuals deliberately put themselves in challenging environments where they can aspire, succeed and fail. Focusing on their habits and constant improvement they learn to become comfortable with being uncomfortable.
To optimize productivity and performance while exhausting our fullest potential, we must successfully transport our thoughts, beliefs, behavior, career, and future from a 20th-century mentality to a 21st-century growth mentality. We have a unique opportunity every day to holistically nurture and lead ourselves. The better you know yourself, the better capable you are of enhancing your life.
