Leadership Skills LEAD to Holistic Well-Being for All

How do you differentiate between a boss and a leader?

In the simplest of terms, a boss catches you doing something wrong and
tells you about it at the most inappropriate of times, whereas a leader
catches you doing something good and tells you about it immediately.
Which do you want to be?

Modeling is the most powerful thing you do to influence the behaviors
of the people in your life. What kind of behaviors to you want to
elicit from your children, your friends, and your co-workers?

As a manager, developing and refining your leadership skills will
create a positive climate in the workplace, reduce stress, and result
in a sense of overall well-being for everyone, including you. The
greatest benefit of leadership is that it results in increased
productivity and happiness in all areas of your life.

Leaders are visionaries and dreamers. Leaders are optimistic. Leaders
are teachers who teach by example. Leaders are approachable and
hands-on. Leaders are welcomed with open arms, excitement, and respect
wherever they go because wherever they are, people are feeling good.

Are you an optimistic visionary? Are you fair, supportive,
nonjudgmental, open-minded, and encouraging? If you answered yes, you
are having a better all around life, physically, psychologically,
emotionally, and spiritually. Leadership is a choice. . .a no-brainer!
