Are you the best that you can be? Do you regularly step back from your business to evaluate how you are performing as a leader and how your business’s performance measures up over all?
We all slip into a comfort mode from time to time. This is just what happens unless we consciously choose otherwise. That’s what makes being the best we can be a constant challenge. We don’t have to do anything to slip into complacency, it is there waiting for us. But we have to make a conscious choice to perform at a high level and we need to make that choice over and over again.
I recommend having a regularly scheduled performance review just like you would for any other team member. Schedule a time to objectively review your company’s over all performance and be careful to measure yourself against what is possible rather than a historic pattern.
Great companies and great leaders don’t happen by accident. They happen because there is a plan to make them that way.
