4 Crucial Skills that Separate a High Performing Leader from the Rest

Did you know that in an article from Insider, it found that the top three reasons why people do not like their jobs (62% of responses) were all communication-related and all due to a lack of CLARITY.

As a business owner, one of your most important responsibilities is to give yourself and your team the CLARITY needed to thrive. The clearer you are about what you want, the more easily you can share it. And, for employees, the degree to which they can understand the tasks they are meant to be doing, and the more easily they can perform their role, the higher their level of performance at work will be. It’s a WIN WIN!

When we speak about High Performers, there are four areas that differentiate them and separate them from under performers and give them an amazing ability to GET CLEAR on what they are after.

A High Performer Has:
  • Clarity about Self: they know how they want to be and who they are.
  • Clarity around Social Interactions: they know how they want to show up in situations to get the outcome desired.
  • Clarity around Skills: they understand the need for development and find ways to improve their skills in order for them to thrive.
  • Clarity around Service: they know the importance in helping others and going above and beyond in situations.

‘A lack of clarity could put the brakes on any journey to success.’
-Steve Maraboli

As a leader in your business, take a moment to see how you measure up in these areas?

Clarity About Self: is all about knowing who you are.

  • Do you know who you want to be, and how you want to act?
  • Do you know how you want to show up, especially in difficult situations? Are you reactive and defensive?
  • Are you aware of the influence you have with others and the impact that has on your outcomes?
  • Do you have a vision beyond your current situation in life?
  • What would be three words to describe your ideal self?

Clarity around Social Interactions: knowing how you want your relationships to look.

  • Do you believe that you are a good leader?
  • What energy do you bring to your team?
  • Are you aware of your closest relationship and the way you show up?
  • Do you demonstrate the qualities you want others to remember you by?

Clarity around Skills: knowing the skills you need to develop in order to succeed.

  • What are the top three areas you need development on within the next year?
  • You know where you want to go, but are you developing the skills needed to get there?
  • Do you know who you need around you to develop these skills?

Clarity around Service: knowing the importance of giving.

  • Do you ask yourself how can you go above and beyond to serve others?
  • Do you give people more than they expect?
  • Do you look for new opportunities to share your knowledge and serve others?

If you choose to make one big difference this year, seeking CLARITY must be at the top of your list. Once you have CLARITY, extraordinary things happen, in your business, in your life and in your relationships.
