Why I lead the way I do (a leadership philosophy story)

Why I lead the way I do (a leadership philosophy story): Stories Every Leader Should Tell
Why I lead the way I do (a leadership philosophy story): Stories Every Leader Should Tell

Many leaders keep a one-page document that articulates their leadership philosophy and share it with all of their direct reports. That's a great idea, as it's important for your team to understand how you lead. The problem is, that page is usually just a list of a bunch of buzzwords and management speak. Switch the name at the top of the page and it could just as easily represent anyone. A better solution is to tell them stories about defining moments in your career that shaped who you are as a person and a leader. In this video, see an insightful example and learn tips on how to create similar leadership philosophy stories of your own.
