NEWS AND INSIGHTS UPDATE:
If you believe in karma, then you believe that your actions today affect what you’ll experience and receive in the future. Therefore, how you behave and your actions as a leader today will affect your future, too.
Alaina Love asks The Little Pink Book audience to think about the karma they want to create as leaders. She offers some options to consider:
- You can create a culture of respect, or you can behave as a domineering, Machiavellian leader.
- You can micromanage your best people or you can trust individuals to be committed to doing their best.
- You can act with integrity or you can backtrack on promises and shift accountability to someone else.
- You can work diligently to know yourself, strengths and weaknesses included, or you can use bravado to mask your shortcomings so that you never really remedy them.
- You can selfishly focus on working your own agenda, or you can generously support others in reaching their goals (and celebrate when they do).
- You can willingly share information, or choose to hoard it because you believe it imbues you with power.
- You can manipulate others like pawns on a chessboard, or you can honestly tell them what you need and want, and engage them in supporting your goals.
- You can actively grow other leaders or spend all of your time demanding that people follow you.
- You can lead from a place of purpose and passion or you can drive for results through power and fear.
- You can focus on possibility and abundance or you can embrace scarcity and defeat.
Bottom-line, the old adage that you should treat others as you’d like to be treated plays a prominent role in leadership karma as well as in life. Your actions today affect your future, so make a conscious effort to create positive leadership karma. You’ll be glad you did.
