A truly great leader is rare... When I was a Manager of 55+ team members at 27 years of age it was difficult to find the right support to get me through not only the challenges of the workplace but the personal challenges that came with it as well.
Lack of sleep, stress, and the long hours led to underperformance as a leader at the office and at home. The owner didn't care about that though and didn't see the correlation between personal and professional performance which is ironic because it had a negative effect to his bottom line. It's true that our team needs our support, but just as, and in my opinion, even more important, the leaders of companies need support. It all starts with the leader. It can be a lonely feeling and most of us struggle with opening up for help and guidance.
As a leader in the auto industry, a parent, an entrepreneur, and a certified professional Performance Coach, I can relate far too well with the ups and downs. To be the leader you always wanted and one that your team and family will love, this article is a great resource to draw from.
You got this!
