Ethics in leadership- what is your walk?

Ethics.  Simple word. Much involved in it. The last two weeks have had me in a leadership role overseeing actions, communication and ethical practices for people I have responsibility for.

One piece of wisdom and insight for all leaders to remember: we, when given a role of leadership, we serve others best when we remember first and foremost that it is us who must guide ourselves with each step, thought and action in order to help raise up others in every situation.

What we do in every situation- whether you wear the role of ‘leader’ or follower’ is felt and observed by others. They may not comment. They may not question. They DO observe and they do change their actions and thinking towards you.  Manage your own efforts and actions first, live ethically and morally. When you do, you will be able to guide others for betterment as they see you are consistent through and through.

One of my favorite quotes on Leadership ” A leader is one who may make a decision that does not get the popular vote. A true leader will stand firm on that decision because they know it’s the right thing to do.”

Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you could? Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you should?

Innovative Business Pioneers Share Their Stories on POL Radio

Ever wonder if your idea could really take off and be the ‘next big thing?’ Great ideas often start with the quickest thought. Once you recognize that thought as an opportunity, then find a way to create a solid system (or plan) to make it happen- you can become an innovative business pioneer too!

This weeks Power of Leadership Radio guests were two innovative business pioneers. I interviewed Bonnie Ross-Parker (The Joy of Connecting®) & Rick Itzkowich (Productive Learning & Leisure).

Bonnie has a unique perspective on networking- she’s founded a female focused networking organization that is rapidly growing. Drawing from her working experience in a male dominated corporate arena, Bonnie gave experiential knowledge as to why that time was of value- and how she’s using that to further help female business owners today!

I’ve known Rick for years – and he is one of my favorite people to introduce others to! You know that saying ‘if you keep on doing the same thing expecting different results’… you are fulfilling the definition of insanity (ok-that’s my own special twist on the definition)… well, if you ARE stuck in a thinking rutt- then Rick is a person for you to know.

Rick shared with our listeners his unique brand of thinking and results producing way of branding and staying top of mind in those around you. If you missed this show- and are looking for a GREAT way to keep your name, your business and your brand in front of those you need to be in front of- be sure to listen into the archive of this show! Rick has a very cool offer just for you. (I’ve been using this for quite some time now and am very glad to pass it on!)

Enjoy and keep on growing as the awesome leader you are!
