063 - Marine Corps Leadership Trait: Endurance
Leadership is a journey, not a destination. Furthermore, leadership involves hardships, stress, pressures, and burdens. This being the case, endurance is a crucial trait in leadership.
The Marine Corps is full of opportunities to demonstrate endurance. Leadership endurance involves mental and emotional stamina, in addition to physical stamina.
In this episode, we'll discuss endurance and tips that will help you endure the demands of leadership.
1) Take care of yourself
2) Pace yourself
3) Establish an infinite mindset
062 - Marine Corps Leadership Trait: Loyalty
Every leader wants their team to be loyal. “How can I get my team to be more loyal?” I hear similar questions often. As a leader, they key question to ask isn’t how to get your team to be more loyal. The key question is, “how can you be more loyal as the leader?”
In this episode, we’ll explore the Marine Corps leadership trait of loyalty. In addition to the Marine Corps manual, we’ll discuss tips for increasing loyalty in your leadership.
1) Revisit your purpose often
2) Take good care of yourself
3) Find a community of other leaders
061 - Marine Corps Leadership Trait: Knowledge
The importance of knowledge in a leadership role is obvious. However, this Marine Corps leadership trait reaches far beyond specific subject matter knowledge.
The Leadership Calculator uses Competence to calculate leadership effectiveness - essentially the same as knowledge. This competence is specific subject matter competence, general industry-related competence, and leadership competence.
Here are a few tips for increasing your knowledge...
1) Books - Leaders are readers
2) Invest in yourself - Courses, content, communities
3) Get a coach - see our Coaching options at credibleleaders.com/coaching
