Developing a Leader’s Mentality

In the olden days, first-level leaders had multiple managers above them who had steadily climbed the leadership ladder, accumulating experience along the way. However, companies now have fewer experienced managers to teach new managers how to do their jobs. One practical strategy to become an excellent manager is to develop a leader’s mentality. Leaders must be aware of how and why they think as they do and make sure their suppositions are accurate and realistic. Using FranklinCovey’s “See-Do-Get Cycle” as a mental framework can help navigate change and develop the behaviors that accompany the transition to becoming a better leader.
