My biggest fear as a leader is that I will one day be so distracted by the need to delegate what needs to be done, that I forget to clue people into why we are doing it. That one day I will neglect inspiring my team.

We loved hearing from all of you on which leaders come to mind when you think of passion. Here are some of our favorites from the week:

Despite what culture tries to convince us, big paychecks do not make happy people. You’re not waking up in the morning excited to hit the office for a big paycheck… sure, maybe for a season, or a portion of your life… but not for the long-haul.

If where you are right now is not where you aspire to be, that’s ok. Working a job you don’t love is not failure. Giving up the pursuit of what you do love… that’s failure.

Can you imagine if kindness were required in all professional environments and was taught alongside traditional subjects in all classrooms? Because just as we can learn to add or multiply, we can all learn to be a little kinder and a little bit more compassionate.

You see, as a company you can try as hard as you want to appear to be what people want you to be. You can spend millions on advertising — certainly companies do just that — but what will create loyal supporters and attract better employees is a company whose business practices speak for themselves.

The understanding that mission and vision shouldn’t just live on walls is well documented, but thinking about your work having “tangible results in the real world” is a way of framing it that truly captures the weight of the responsibility.

Do you want to be a great leader who helps your team uncover innovative strategies, practices, and products? Take a look at your workflow and accountability process. So much of what takes place on a daily basis in our workplaces happens because it has always happened, not necessarily because it is the best way.

By chance does this sound familiar- “I don’t know what I want to do, but I know it’s not this?” I am pretty confident that you have either said that or heard it from those in your personal or professional life.

There is power in allowing people to be heard. Beyond the value that we feel when our voice is heard, we develop a sense of ownership, and a greater involvement in the process.

If you don’t want to be an intern, stop acting like one. Own your job, don’t covet someone else’s. Rise to every challenge, but never at the expense of others. Help others excel, with no expectations of any return. Be the most respectful person in the office, and never forget that public loyalty leads to private leverage.

If I am honest with you I spend a significant portion of my life in tension, tension I both crave and loathe in equal parts. In fact for a majority of my life I lived with tension about tension.

If you read my January post, I mentioned my four core career beliefs that inform everything that I write, do, and speak about. In each of the next four months I will go deeper into each one so that we are speaking the same language in our march toward getting you firmly in the driver’s seat of your career.

There will likely come a time in all of our lives where the spotlight is focused directly on us. In that moment we will all have a choice of how we handle the attention. Essentially there are two options… absorb, or reflect.

Last week my dad called my brother and I to let us know that he would once again begin the arduous process of job-hunting. The tech company he had been working for hadn’t hit their numbers in 2013 and had been forced to layoff a section of their company.

We so often hear how culture defines business or team success, and while so many leadership books attempt to validate this claim, the real question is how do we create, or architect, culture? Far too commonly, culture becomes an elusive mystery spoken only in human resource conference rooms. In my career, I've had the privilege of working for some of the world's most recognized and respected brands. In each of these companies, I've witnessed many leaders and meetings attempting to define culture, impact culture, measure culture, and change culture. They tended to be tactical in nature, including ideas like; changing the environment, giving people more time off, and adding fun into the workplace.

Moments of peril often drive humanity to serve one another in unparalleled ways. Ways that go beyond oneself for the sake of others. Atlanta, the city where Leadercast is headquartered, is slammed with winter weather just a few times a decade. While many look at the 2 or 3 inches of snow as a ‘dusting’, this city shuts down due to inadequate equipment and manpower to service the roads. These moments open the doors of opportunity for neighbors to help neighbors, strangers to become friends and through the power of social media – an entire community of leaders can rise up.
