Ever feel like you’ve got a target right on your chest for all to see and take practice shots at?
It can happen to all of us from time to time but you may want to see who placed the bull’s-eye on you in the first place.
If you are a leader merely relying on your position or title to ‘inspire’ people to follow you or listen to you, then I have good news for you, you can remove the target from your chest simply by putting it down.
You put it there with posturing yourself as a positional leader.
Stop wearing it like armor and instead begin serving.
That’s right serving.
Serve the members of your team by asking them how you can help them. Ask them what is the one obstacle that if it were out of the way they could deliver a better result?
See what you can do to serve them, your customer, the vision.
Drop the title.
Drop the pretense.
Drop the rhetoric.
Just drop by and serve your team and over time you can throw away the bull’s-eye for good.
