Back to Basics

Recently took the plunge on committing to a 12 month fitness program. Finished last year’s soccer season with an injury. So making choices this year and really had to reassess what help most. See, have this secret vision. Want to be a really fit and healthy 90 year old.

With this in mind, the next 12 months is about rebuilding core working on mobility, strength and fitness. Going back to basics, that we know, yet might have forgotten, overlook or ignore without realising, because we get busy, excited by something new or avoid what we think might be difficult.

Not just talking sport. In leadership, the basics matter.
It’s extra of the ordinary, everyday things that create extraordinary at work and in life.

When Kate asked recently during a webinar on Building Leadership Strengths, what’s the most important leadership competency for a person to have?

Be an Effective Listener – and to do that use:

  • Eye contact
  • Pauses
  • Supportive and engaged body language,
  • Acknowledgment of the speaker ‘their feelings & their facts/version of events’ before stating own
  • Understand own triggers, know what might ‘invoke’ a response or reaction in advance.

Here’s to the basics.
