LA 006: 7 Steps to your new goal

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

When you aim for the right target, your goal becomes more possible  You already know that you need to have a clear goal in your personal development as a leader. Without a goal, you don't know where you are going. And that's exactly where you will end up... drifting somewhere... maybe it'll be great, maybe it'll be a waste of your time. Here are the seven steps to your new leadership development goal: https://youtu.be/APVrdQo_wQY Who is in your Inner Circle? The people closest to you can raise you up or tear you down. Take a long hard look at those who are in your inner circle and fill it, if necessary with people who build you up.

Develop SMART goals in each area of your life. Know specifically what your goal is, know how you will measure it, make sure that you can attain it (with the help of your inner circle). Make sure your goal is realistic (if someone else has done it, it is!) And put your stake in the ground for time. When will you achieve this goal? Can it change, sure it can... you can move the goal posts any time you like.

Breakdown your bigger, longer term goals into smaller, shorter term chunks. Any goal worth having is going to take time to reach. Breaking it down into smaller steps makes it much more manageable. I recommend that you "think week' - after all you can pretty well predict a week ahead. But a month... that's tough, all sorts of things could happen in a month. For example, establish steps that you will have completed by Friday each week (time to celebrate at the weekend!)

Work with an accountability partner. Check with your inner circle regularly to review your progress. Wouldn't it be nice if you could trust yourself to have the self-discipline to do this alone? Sure... but believe me, you wouldn't be reading this if you were that self-disciplined. Work with someone in your inner circle who will support you, cajole you, nag you... whatever it takes. You already know what works for you, so invite them to do so and return the favour.

Celebrate your conquering of each milestone. Don't wait till the end result. Constantly promising yourself that one day you will celebrate. No, choose to celebrate every milestone. My wife and I have a stupid little dance we do... in private I might add because it really isn't something you would like to see... but we have fun and it's our shared symbol of an achievement worth celebrating.

When you reach the goal, choose to stretch yourself to new heights. So you've developed yourself well and achieved the goal you set. Well that just proves that you are a lot more capable than even you thought. Now let's raise your game and set new standards to achieve.

Remember - leadership develops daily, not in a day. Keep on keeping on. It won't happen tomorrow. You don't absorb new competencies or character traits by simply exposing yourself to them. No, you need to put your development into practice each and every day. Repeat what works, learn from what doesn't. Adapt, change and keep on keeping on. Eventually, it'll come 'naturally' and you may even forget that previously you weren't this good.

No-one, who ever achieved anything great truly, did it alone. Build you inner circle, set clear SMART goals and plan each of the smaller steps necessary to achieve them - this is all part of successful personal development. I look forward to hearing about your celebrations. Which of the 7 steps do you do best and which worst?

Hi, you're listening to the advantage podcast with me, John Camery. Hi there, this is Dr John Kemworthy and welcome to this podcast on seven steps to your new goal. You already know that you really need to have a clear goal in your personal development as a leader. Without a goal, you don't know where you're going, and that's exactly where you will end up, drifting somewhere. Maybe it'll be great, maybe it'll be a waste of time. So here are seven steps to make sure that you achieve your new leadership development goal. Step Number One, who is in your inner circle? The people who are closest to you can raise you up or tear you down.

Take a long, hard look at those who are in your inner circle and fill it, if necessary, with people who will build you up, people who will edify you. Step too, is develop smart goals, sm a arty in each area of your life. No specifically what your goal is and know how you are going to measured it. Make sure that you can attain it with the help of your innocent and make sure that your goal is realistic. If someone else has done it, then it is put your stake in the ground for time. When are you going to have achieved this goal. Can you change your goal your time? Sure, you can move the goal...

...posts any time you like. It's your goal. Step three is break down your bigger, longer term goals into smaller, shorter term chunks or milestones. Any goal that's worth having is going to take time to reach. Breaking it down into smaller steps makes it more manageable. I recommend that you think week see. We can plan pretty well a week ahead, but a month ahead that's more tough. All sorts of things could happen in a month. So, for example, established steps that you will have completed by Friday each week and time to celebrate at the weekend. Step for work with an accountability partner. Check with your inner circle regularly to review your progress. Wouldn't it be...

...nice if you could trust yourself to have the selfdiscipline to do this? Sure, but believe me, you wouldn't actually be reading this or listening to this if you were that selfdisciplined. Work with someone in your inner circle who will support you, Cajole you now, give whatever it takes. You already know what works for you, so invite them to do so and later return the favor. Step five is celebrate your conquering of each of those milestones and wait till the end result, constantly promising yourself that one day you will celebrate. No, choose to celebrate every three miles to my wife, stupid little in private, I might tell because it's not really something you would like to see. We have fun and it's our shared symbol of the achievement worthy celebrate.

Step six, when you reach your overall choose to stretch yourself to new heights. So you've just set developed yourself well and achieve a goal you set. I just proves that you are not more capable. Even so. Now let's raise your gail. Set New standards to achieve step seven. Remember, leadership develops daily, not in a day. Keep it won't happen tomorrow. You don't absorb new competences or character traits by simply exposing yourself to know. You need to put your development into practice each and every day. Repeat what words, learn from what doesn't, adapt, change and keep on keeping more. Eventually it'll come naturally and you may even forget previously. You will this good.

So the seven steps. Make sure you know who's in your inner circle and fill it as need be. Build your support. You set a smart, longer term goal and break down that goal into smaller charts. MILESTON, thinking weak wherever possible, working with an accountability parlor from within your inner circle. Usually it will help up you and support you, keep you keeping. Celebrate each at every milest and when you finally reach that goal, stretch yourself to new DS, remembering the whole time that leadership developed daily, not every day. See no one ever achieved anything rate. Truly build to your innocent...

...set those clear, smart goals and plan each of the smaller steps necessary to achieve them. This is a part of successful person development.
