Want to Lead? Don’t Fit In

“Fitting in” is a big deal, and in many organizations it’s seen as the way to career longevity.

That’s a problem.

People are influenced by those they see as being “ahead of them.” If you simply match the rest of the workforce and blend in, your influence is diminished. Eventually, you become invisible.

If you want to lead, be willing to raise your personal standards to exceed the common expectations of your organization or work group. “Raising” equates with “elevating.” Once you raise the bar for yourself, you begin to view things from a heightened position that expands your perspective. When that happens, you’re able to see and describe a greater vision for those around you.

What can you start doing now to raise your standards and lead even more effectively??
