TRIPLE III TIME: “Measuring Pride”
As I have continued to grow and develop in my small business owner role and as a professional consultant, one of the areas that I believe is often overlooked when involved in assessing professional leadership is: Measuring PRIDE. Let me explain.
When you think about quality leadership traits most often you identify: poise under pressure, a great communicator, understanding of issues, a fair compromiser and visionary as some of the top ones. But do you ever think about someone’s ability to express their PRIDE with style, sincerity, and with the right amount of passion (but not brag) as important traits? Logically wouldn’t it be appropriate to apply Measuring PRIDE when you are interviewing someone for a job, considering someone as a business partner and/or agreeing to be a professional reference for anyone? I believe Measuring PRIDE is a true reflection of someone’s leadership character.
So what’s the TRIPLE III TIME point?
As you go forward as a professional please consider Measuring YOUR PRIDE with style, sincerity and passion when you think about:
- Being a friend
- Personal achievements
- Educational achievements
- Professional achievements
- Volunteer efforts
- Mentoring opportunities
- Allowing someone to help you
- Leaving a legacy
- Level of commitment
- Partnership requests
I think addressing these TOP 10 Measuring PRIDE considerations will help you be appropriately recognized as positive, humble and success-driven.
