As you are leading and impacting others, are you getting the results you want?  If yes, do you know what you are doing to get those results so you can keep getting them again and again?  And if no, do you know what you are doing that is disempowering others, so that you can change your approach to achieve your desired results and empower others in the process?

So, what does it take to be an impactful leader?  Being a leader is not about your title, the power of your position or how many followers you have.  It comes down to three critical steps.

1.  Know where you are coming from - Know what you believe in and what your values are so that you can make decisions and lead your team in the direction that supports your vision.

2.  Adopt a leadership mindset that positively affects your behaviors, your outcomes and therefore your impact.  When you have a leadership mindset, you take responsibility for your team and your results.

3.  Empower your team members to be their best.  Identify the strengths and talents of your team so you can empower them to achieve the desired goal.

These simple tips will help you to be an impactful leader while getting the results you want.  What kind of an impact are you making as a leader?  I would love to hear your comments.
