Practice 1: Develop a Leader’s Mindset


Keep the following questions in mind while you read the rest of the practices. At the conclusion of this book, you’ll take your insights and craft a plan for becoming the leader your team deserves.

  • What kind of leader does your team need right now? What kind of leader does your organization need you to be?
  • What do you need to learn (or unlearn) to become the leader they need?
  • Picture yourself ten years from now. What do you want your team to say about this time in their lives? What results will you and your team have delivered? How would you want your team to describe your leadership?
  • What do you need to do in the coming months to make your vision happen?
