One of the great things about the human psyche is that we inherently look for answers to the things that the universe throws at us – both good and bad.
Even when things get tough, after an initial period of acceptance, we usually realise that we must fix it, or live with it, and so we do something about it or accept it.
But for some people that is not so easy. They struggle with the concept of a better way and often allow things to get on top of them, blurring their vision.
This is where you and I come in.
As leaders, we so often hear about the skills and the expectations that come with being a leader, but very rarely do we discuss one of our most important roles, and that is to provide and promote HOPE to those we lead.
To let people, know and feel like there is a better way just around the corner and that their current situation is just a glitch in the bigger picture.
But to be able to promote HOPE to others, we must first adopt the principles of GRATITUDE and RESILIENCE into our own lives, because HOPE is lived by example, not just through words.
My understanding of HOPE is this:
H - helping
O - others
P - perform
E - everyday
Our role as leaders is to help others perform every day, but also to help them realise that what they do is in turn creating a better way and providing HOPE for others.
So, what is the message of HOPE that you are promoting right now, both in your workplace and in your personal life – because people need something to hang on to and believe in.
It is very simple – GREAT Leaders promote HOPE.
Something to think about!
