Stories of great success differ in a thousand ways, yet they all share a few critical elements.

“The most impactful mentors are often at arm’s length – an author whose book we absorb, a podcaster whose episodes we devour, a radio host, a keynote speaker, a historical figure or someone in the public eye.”

Take time to learn your core values. Stay true to them.

“Until you know what’s most important to you, you can’t possibly know what to do next. Not authentically, at least.”

Develop deep self-awareness and a strong belief in yourself.

“Leadership is communicating people’s worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.” (leadership legend Stephen R. Covey)

Maintain sky-high standards, don’t take shortcuts and persevere.

“There is differentiating value in continuing to work on a worthy problem and persistently ‘figure things out’ even when others are ready to throw in the towel, give up or walk away.”

Demonstrate professionalism, consistency and perspective in everything you do.

“As I reflect on a 30-year professional career, of all the learnable skills I correlate the highest with those of influence, the top is self-regulation.”

Use neuroscience-based techniques to develop positive habits.

Stay humble and grateful.

“Your singular journey is unique and precious to you, as is the journey of others you may not know.”

Be humble enough to learn others’ perspectives, listen to and appreciate their journeys, and share your own. Leena Rinne, a veteran Franklin Covey consultant, emphasizes generosity and empathy – not to be confused with sympathy – as critical leadership competencies. Embracing them takes courage, but you’ll build trust and strengthen your relationships.

Work hard and productively.

“Call me old-fashioned, but no amount of education, connections, money, charm, intellect or charisma can replace the reputation and results that come from simply doing the work.”

Don’t confuse hard work with busyness, though.

Plan ahead, do your work incrementally, and avoid leaving tasks to the last minute. Rushing around to accomplish tasks might feel exciting, but it causes undue stress and harms your output. Rather than reward busyness, assess yourself and others on what you get done and the quality of your work.

Practice and promote honesty and psychological safety.

“When leaders own their messes, they allow and empower others to own theirs as well.”

By admitting and discussing their mistakes, leaders demonstrate vulnerability and make it safe for their people to do the same. They create an environment that allows honest conversation about challenges, fears and opportunities, and enables continuous improvement.
