3 Key Missing Ingredients in Your Leadership

Episode #037 Host: Tammy J. Bond

Great leaders always look for ways to improve themselves and unlock their potential. In this episode of Playing In the Sandbox, I take you through the three key ingredients that might be missing from your leadership style.  Whether you’re a new leader or you think you have it all figured out, listen in! I know you’re going to learn something new.

  1. The best leaders are vulnerable and authentic in how they approach and communicate with their teams.
  2. Our culture is obsessed with flawlessness, but projecting flawlessness can come across as inauthentic. Embracing vulnerability as your superpower can help you build trust within your team!
  3. Another ingredient in leadership is visionary curiosity. Asking questions and exploring trends can help us with being proactive and “future-proofing.”
  4. After asking great questions, great leaders experiment without fear of failure. Taking sensible chances can help you build your creativity and resilience.
  5. Hold the eye-roll - as leaders, it’s important that we build empathy and emotional intelligence. If you’re not sure where to start, try journaling to develop your self-awareness!
  6. If we don’t understand our own triggers, it’s hard to see when emotions come up in other people. When we know how to manage our emotions, we can model that for others.
