Martin Luther King Jr. was a great leader. He found ways to take incredible challenges and press on toward his dream. YOU are a great leader also. What you need to do is take your dream, and let it drive you past the Roadblocks, Obstacles and Challenges you face every day.
The fact is, we are all leaders to somebody (read about the value of followers.) Some of us have a more visible leadership role that is under the microscope all the time. The pressure of being the primary decision maker often leads to isolation and burn out. But you are the leader for a reason in the role you are today because you have a purpose that only YOU can fulfill.
There is NO cookie cutter solution to leading a company. Each company, each leader, each situation is different. But there are indeed many similar experiences that can help us avoid problems if we learn from other people’s efforts.
Forbes Magazine wrote an article about Seven Secrets of Inspiring Leaders that talks about a leaders role to Ignite, Navigate, Sell, Paint and Invite their teams to follow their dream. This article was based on input from experienced leaders such as Richard Branson, Suze Orman, and Marissa Mayer, and has great insights that I hope you can use to inspire those who are following you.
You may not have the opportunity to spend time with these leaders, but you can get support, insight, wisdom, and accountability from other great leaders right here in Dallas. Renaissance Executive Forums Dallas brings top executives together in a peer advisory group setting that is designed to set them free to be the great leaders they were destined to be. That may sound dreamy but we mean it, and it works!
We know you have the skills to get the job done, our groups share experiences and resources that help you remove things that get in the way. Most Owners, CEOs and Presidents of companies know what to do or they would not be where they are today. What they often fail to do is EXECUTE due to a lack of time, money, or the right people to get it done. Our monthly peer advisory groups enable members to:
- Reduce the Isolation of being the Top Executive
- Gain new perspectives on Growth
- Make better Decisions
- Hold themselves and their company Accountable
- Stimulate Change in their business
Renaissance Executive Forums Dallas is here to serve the business leaders of the Metroplex. We are passionate about making a real impact on the lives of Dallas top executives and their teams, in our “quest to change the world” (see our Mission Statement). We want to hear from you and know what your plans and dreams are, and see how we can support YOU.
Renaissance Executive Forums has partnered with Leadercast to host a satellite location for Leadercast on May 8, 2015 at the Hope Center in Plano, TX.
