Active CEO Performance Tip

“With great power comes great responsibility” – As Spiderman once said, while sharing his wisdom. As a leader you not only have a responsibility for yourself, your family and your people, but also for the industry you work in and humankind. We are not leaders if we shy away from inappropriate behaviour and negative decisions. We have a responsibility to ensure that the industry we work in grows in a positive manner as the actions of the negative few can have a harmful effect on everyone. Ask yourself the question, is these actions and behaviour moving the industry forward or taking it backwards? What is the consequence to human beings as a result of these actions and behaviours? How responsible are you as a leader?

PURPOSE Create A Ripple Effect

Craig Johns talks about PURPOSE, create a ripple effect and the importance of knowing your WHY, VISION, MISSION and VALUES.

Have you ever wondered what the most successful people in the world have in common? They have absolute clarity on their vision!

It is very difficult to find your destination, when you don’t know what it is. To be able to gain clarity on your vision, you first need to understand your purpose in life.

Why do you get up each day with a  spring in your stride, what fuels your fire, what brings a smile to your face?

Today we are going to explore why you need to understand your purpose so you can be a world class leader who is creating a ripple effect.

Why – Vision – Mission – Values

Let’s start with your Why, your Purpose in life

What is your reason for existence as a human being? What is your intention and objective that you want to achieve in life? Why have you been put on this planet?

How can you create a ripple effect through your employees, team members and people of influence?

Focus on something bigger than just yourself. Determine what your companies or your own real purpose is in life. Your why or your companies why?

What work can you do to serve that purpose and leave a positive mark or dent on the world? The WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us.

Vision

What is your destination? What does the future look like? What does success look like in 5, 10, 20, 30 or 100 years time?

Does your vision inspire you, challenge you and make you feel a little bit or a whole lot uncomfortable? (for the right reasons?)

My vision:

“DEVELOP HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS WHO POSITIVELY IMPACT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD”

Mission

What is the reason and path you will take to get to your vision? What is your intention and how you will do it?

The mission must be simple and easy for people to understand the path that you will take and why you will take it to achieve the vision.

My mission:

“TRANSFORMING INFLUENCERS INTO BEING HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS”

Values

What is your DNA? What are the core values that you will base decisions and beliefs on?

What will you be consistent with so your are congruent with your message and who your are?

My values:

Craig Johns values NRG2Perform DNA

BUILD YOUR OWN TRIBE

Build Your OWN TRIBE – who are the mentors, coaches & people in your proximity

The recent events have led to a lot of self reflection, you realise you need to upskill and upgrade, but you don’t feel like you  have the right people around you to make the change

We usually surround ourselves with two types of people. First the cheerleaders and like minded-people who give us comfort through telling us what we want to hear and two those who distract us with negativity and lack of hope.

It is important to surround ourselves with people who ask the thought provoking questions, keep us accountable and ensure we stay true to our mission.

BUILD YOUR OWN TRIBE

Who are the mentors, coaches & people in your proximity?

  1. Identify and write down a list of every skill you want to upgrade
  1. Write down a list of people and/or types of people you need in your proximity to upgrade those skills
  1. Write down 3 curious questions that you would like to ask each person and make a phone call or send an email and ask for a virtual coffee
