Henry David Thoreau once said, “Distrust any enterprise that requires new clothes.” His way of saying, don’t give your life to something that won’t allow you to be yourself.
When it comes to your leadership style, are you “dressed appropriately?” Do you spend more time copying other successful leaders than you do trying to discover your own strengths?
Great leaders know themselves and they understand their own talents and abilities.
If you want to have a great week of leadership this week try being yourself. I believe you will find it a lot easier than “buying a whole new wardrobe.”
