Daily Leadership Tip Series – Introduction
This is the introductory video for our Daily Leadership Tip Challenge. This series is based on the book 28 Ways to Influence People & Gain Buy-In by Doug Staneart (The guy in the video. 😉 ) We encourage you to apply each of the 28 daily leadership principles during your four-week challenge. Focus on applying just a single principle every single day.
Why this Leadership Tip Series was Created.
In 2002, The Leader’s Institute® developed processes that help people communicate with, lead, and motivate others more effectively. Since then, we have constantly refined this process over the years. At the beginning of each High Impact Leaders ™ program, we give class members a desktop card file. This card file contains a visual reminder of each of these 28 Leadership Principles. We encourage the participant to purposefully apply one principle a day for 28 consecutive days.
We created this daily leadership tip series to offer real-life examples of each principle. During the 28-day leadership challenge, we want you to purposefully apply these principles in your life. If you do, I think you will be surprised at the number of people you will influence in a positive way. To get the best results, look for ways to apply one principle per day for 28 consecutive days.
We Organized This Daily Leadership Tip Series into Four One-Week Sections.
Each week, we cover seven different principles focused on a single topic within leadership development. In Week #1, we cover 7 Ways to Build Trust. Next, in Week #2, we give you 7 Conflict Resolution Leadership Tips. Then, in Week #3, we show you 7 Ways to Gain Cooperation from Your Team. Finally, in Week #4, we cover 7 Ways to Build More Leaders.
I know what you are thinking, though… Wait… Doug… There are only five days in a workweek. So, why are there seven leadership tips each week? There are two main reasons for this. First, the goal here is to help you create new habits. We form habits by doing certain behaviors every day. If you take a couple of days off, you will break your momentum. More importantly, though, the relationships we have with friends and family are also important. You also want to use these daily leadership tips with your friends and family!
How to Get the Most Out of these Leadership Skills
- First, go through the entire series in order from start to finish.
- Next, highlight any important points that could help you personally.
- Then, re-watch one principle per day for 28 straight days. When you do, look for ways to consciously apply that principle during that day.
- At the end of 28 days, review any principles that were particularly difficult for you to apply.
- Finally, begin the entire process again to reinforce each habit.
