Be Sure to “Walk The Talk”

“Walking The Talk” is a requirement for today’s leaders. It’s just another way of saying … practice what you preach.

Here are a few “Walk The Talk” leadership behaviors from the bestseller 144 Ways to Walk The Talk that I particularly like:
1. Create a list of desired results (end states) when planning tasks and projects. By evaluating potential activities against the list, you’ll maintain focus and increase your chances of achieving the results you want.
2. Become a Continuous Learning Machine. Set a personal goal to learn something new about your job, about your organization, or about your professional discipline every week.
3. Work with team members to develop a common (shared) definition for “intelligent risk taking” – to be used as a guideline for future activities.
4. Remember with authority comes the responsibility to use it wisely, sparingly, and for the benefit of your entire team. The organization can bestow a leadership title, but it’s up to you to really earn it.
And remember … when you Walk The Talk you, your team and your organization get BIG results!

Become An Effective and Respected Leader

Become An Effective and Respected Leader

It’s a fact! Leaders and organizations that practice what they preach, aka Walk The Talk, consistently outperform those that don’t. And, the secret to those successes are consistent and predictable leadership behaviors such as these from 144 Ways To Walk The Talk:

#6 - Create a list of desired results when planning tasks and projects. By evaluating potential activities against this list, you’ll maintain focus and increase your chances of achieving the results you want.

#49 - Be a Star Catcher. Regularly “catch people doing things right” and recognize them for it. And, make recognition self-perpetuating by recognizing those who recognize others.  Remember: What gets recognized gets reinforced, and what gets reinforced gets repeated.

#130 -  Supply all meeting participants with a written agenda two to three days prior to the meeting. Make sure the agenda includes: meeting objective(s); issues to be discussed; start/end times and location; who will be attending; how participants should prepare; and what they should bring.

Look Beyond Your Profession

Look beyond your profession. Consider pursuing developmental activities that have nothing to do with your job, but can help you grow as a person. You’ll probably be surprised to find that unrelated learning can positively impact
your job performance.
