If you’re looking to work your way up to be a great leader, it will take hard-work and good support around you. Here are three things you’ll need to help you reach that goal…
Caring leaders: A great boss thrives off of teaching, motivating, and leading, and will do whatever they can to teach you how to do all of those things as well. So if you currently have a boss that is less than stellar, hopefully you can overcome your boss’ shortcomings, eventually replace them, and be that great boss for your staff.
Wise mentors: Working with someone who has a lot of great experience is an excellent way for you to learn how to get where you want to be in your career. A good mentor has made both good and bad decisions and has learned a lot from both. Having an experienced mentor in your life, who cares about your future is a great way to learn to lead.
Reasons to be inspired: What gets you out of bed every morning? Being successful at what you do is hard without motivation, and it’s hard to have motivation when you haven’t found your purpose. Think about the employees and members who rely on you now and will rely on you in the future and use that as fuel. Members come to you for all kinds of reasons, and they’ve selected your credit union to help them with their problems. Remember that every morning, especially the days you find it hard to get out of bed.
