Sometimes, especially as leaders, we get frustrated and ask ourselves:
- Why wasn’t I more consistent in having one-on-one conversations with my people this week?
- Why didn’t I put more energy into checking on certain things this quarter?
- Why did I allow other issues and demands to distract me?
I have two things to share with you about the topic of consistency. First, give yourself a break. As I said at the beginning, we are all human. We all mess up. We all fall down. What you did in the past doesn’t define what you will do in the future. You define that.
Second, if you want to be more consistent in how you lead yourself and others, choose to embrace the 5 Cs. Watch the video, print out the tool, and begin to act in alignment with the ideas.
