Two Heads Are Better Than One.

"None of us is as smart as all of us." ~Ken Blanchard

This old adage tells a truth that we would be wise to remember. The reality is if we have a purpose or mission that is important, it will take more than one person to accomplish it.

A leader cannot do it on their own, nor can any one team member accomplish it by themselves. Truly great things are accomplished through collaboration and openness to new ideas. It takes the sum knowledge and talents of everyone on the team.

Take your most complex issue. How long have you been struggling to solve that issue? Consider how much better it would be to tap into someone else's ideas or perspective.

Personal Challenge:

-Who do you need to ask for input and advice?

-Who can assist you in reaching great goals together?

Do you want your team to work together? To pull in the same direction? Then you must tell them WHY it matters.

Leaders often believe that they have communicated effectively by providing instructions on what to do, issuing a due date, etc. This is nothing more than giving your team members data. What engages people is giving them understanding on the importance of the work they are doing and WHY it matters. When people are aligned and engaged in their work, they produce and strive for excellence.

This works effectively for Taco Bell. Greg Creed, CEO, firmly agrees "Getting alignment is very important, and how I gain it is by doing 3 things: You tell people what, you tell people how, but must importantly, and it's not something we're particularly good at is you have to tell them WHY...

(1) Telling them what, engages their heads.

(2) Telling them how engages their hands.

(3) Telling them WHY engages their HEARTS and enables you to make an emotional connection. This gets you the best alignment."

Opportunities Arise When Electing Strong Leaders

Each leader must ask what they will stand for and the way in which they will influence and serve their team, organization, or country. Strong leaders possess the strength of character to lead with the integrity of word and action; to respect each person, and to work for the good of everyone.

As we approach the election on Tuesday, I am reminded of the many challenges before us as a country. You could site many obstacles or issues that voters will need to decide when they vote. However, it would seem that an even more important issue would be to decide the type of leaders we will elect to represent us. Will we elect leaders who possess integrity, who repspect and represent every single person? All the issues we face will be easier to confront and we will create better strategies if we have strong leaders. Strong leaders are not those who are the loudest; they are those who have a forward vision of what is possible if we work together, they are honest even when it means admitting mistakes, and they are respectful and care for everyone.

We must strive to be strong leaders in our own sphere of influence and seek to elect those that would reflect those values as well. We have great opportunities ahead if we elect strong leaders! Take this opportunity to make a real difference. Vote for strong leaders who will represent all Americans. 

All The Best,

Rhoda
