The Impact of Leadership is Judged Over Time

December 19, 2023

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Have you ever worked out, then looked at yourself in the mirror the next day and felt discouraged because nothing seemed to have changed? We eat healthily and exercise diligently for weeks, months, or even years, and only then do we start to see the significant differences.
The same is true with leadership. It’s not about quick-fix solutions; it takes time to build culture, develop trust, and truly see your impact. We must strive to win each day, yet at the same time, we should not be overly focused on the immediate outcomes of our daily actions. The true impact of leadership will reveal itself in due time.

Quote of the Week:

“Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. That’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.” - Vince Lombardi

Reflection of the Week:

Consider your current leadership roles. How are you performing in showing up consistently day in and day out?
Reflect on the areas of your leadership where you have noticed gradual improvements over time. Remember, leadership is about the influence you have on others, regardless of your position or title.
