Become A Generative Leader
March 21, 2023
Want to experience more success and fulfillment in your career?
Here is a simple mantra to adopt-Contribute to the growth and development of others.
Personal accomplishment can take all of us some way down the road to success, but it’s those who gain meaningful insights into themselves and invest in the development of others who are able to experience consistent growth and success in life.
When you transition from being self-focused to other-focused, you naturally attain the stature of a leader. By passing on to others the distilled wisdom you have gained from all your experiences, you keep yourself relevant and updated. More importantly, by supporting others, you expand your circle of influence, enabling you to accomplish more.
In leadership psychology, there is a term ‘generativity’ that refers to the idea of “making your mark” on the world by using your life’s work and values to aid the development of others. Mentoring, coaching, volunteering, parenting, teaching and fostering others’ growth and development- are all examples of generative leadership.
If you want to build a meaningful legacy and enjoy continuous success, your best bet is to invest yourself in the development of others and contribute towards creating leaders of tomorrow. Become a generative leader.
