The 1 question all future leaders should ask themselves – every day

The 1 question all future leaders should ask themselves – every day

I play golf once a week (also go to the driving range).

Nothing surprising about this really.

But………….

After every game I go to a cafe and whilst waiting for my scrambled eggs I reflect on my game.

I ask myself:

What shots could I have played differently today?

You see, I still want to improve!

When I worked in corporate life I did something similar.

At the end of the day when I was travelling home I would ask myself,

What could I have done differently today?

Perhaps I missed a chance to praise someone or I should have asked another question for example.

It did not matter what it was.

But it was often a small change.

This was my way of trying to improve as a leader.

Leadership can be learned and improved.

The habit of reflecting every day on what you could have done differently and what you have learned are simple, easy ways future leaders can develop themselves.
