Leading Your People
To create your leading your people maxims, you need to explore how you want to interact with the individuals on your team. This self-examination requires you to figure out what you want to stand for and what your team should expect from you in every interaction. You must also think about how you will build their skills and capabilities.
A maxim by definition is a principle or rule of conduct. In the context of the leadership maxims approach, it is a short, personally meaningful and easily explained statement that reflects one of your beliefs about leadership. Maxims do not contain buzzwords. Maxims are simple, clear statements that serve as reminders for how you want to behave and lead and how you want your team members to behave.
I invite you to share your maxims and ideas related to leading your people in this forum. Simply write your maxim and share the personal story behind it in the comments below. I’ve shared a few of my own. I look forward to reading yours. If you’re interested in courses we teach related to leading your people, just look for the LYP icon on our course listing page.
