Leaders as well as followers exercise personal leadership at all levels. Personal leadership is the self-confident ability to crystallize your thinking and establish an exact direction for your life, to commit yourself to moving in that direction and then to take determined action to acquire, accomplish or become whatever you identify as the ultimate goal for your life. Personal leadership is a process of developing a positive self-image that gives you the courage and self-confidence necessary to consciously choose actions that satisfy your needs, to follow that path with perseverance, and accept responsibility for the outcome.
The foundation of personal leadership is a personal mission statement which describes a philosophy or creed that focuses on what one wants to be (character) and to do (contributions and achievements), as well as the values and moral principles that drive one’s attitudes and behaviors. Much like the United States Constitution, it is a personal constitution that is fundamentally changeless.
This workshop will take you through the formation of a personal vision, identification of your personal values, a stakeholder analysis to analyze the degree you are meeting or exceeding their expectations. Also included is a PowerPoint presentation and worksheet to help you raise key stakeholder issues and set goals to address them. The provided survey will allow you to identify what things you value or find important. This information can then be used to help you develop your own personal mission statement.
