Leadership Lessons from the Mirror

Reflection is the difference between excellence and mediocrity. Those who reflect the most, grow the most while those who engage in infrequent reflection, remain where they are. Bottom line, if we want to discover our excellence, we have to take a hard look in the mirror, and we need to do it often.

Don’t believe me?
Check out this tweet I shared a while back.

Reflection is the key to finding your excellence.  Without it, you won't be able to acknowledge your opportunities for growth, i.e. blemishes, messed up hair, or even the sleep in your eye.  But what's worse is that those you lead will notice your inability to pursue growth, and that will do nothing but impede your ability to inspire them to learn and grow by looking in the mirror.

Take a look in the mirror.  Not only will your leadership improve.  Your organization will thank you for it.
