Before you decide for anything at all, either in life or in the business you´re involved, first decide to benchmark!
Last week I followed the hype of the Red Shoe Movement! It was originally launched by the famous authoress Mariela Dabbah who won a prize with her book and now the hype grows and grows. All simply started with her story and the prize. She wrote for a large target group! As for many, it is about Leadership and entering the stage of the strong deciders.
A leader is a practised self-leader in first grade.
Like in chaos, where you can only start from a certain point (x) with what you have and own (either talents, education and the pressing urge) as a leader and strong decider you need to start from the best strategic point in life! This point is your benchmark result. If you start from the “wrong” or say rather inappropriate point, your decisions will not lead you to where you belong. And, you´re not in chaos! Do your homework first – research your current position!
Opposite from chaos, as a self-leader you know your position in life!
To walk on to a stronger Leadership as a tough and relevant decider, first know who you are and where you are. Find your unit (to whom do you belong?) to benchmark yourself so you´ll know your starting point! It is way more easier than starting in chaos where you move-on from where you are, without any navigation. In chaos, you don´t know how fast it will go on for you and whether the next move is taking you any closer to your goal. As a leader & decider from a certain point you´re faster, you´re stronger and you´re more focussed! You know where you are – on the chess board – and it makes a difference!
As a self-benchmarker you definitely become a 1st class decider!
There´s more to come …..
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
