In our Seeds of Success program, SOS Leadership teaches: a leader’s growth determines the growth of their followers – when you, the leader, stop growing, your followers will stop growing as well. Your organization will stop growing. Dr. John Maxwell calls this the Law of the Lid in his book the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership. When this happens, you must step aside and let someone else take over.
There is always something new to be learned. Legendary singer and actress Eartha Kitt stated, “I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.” SOS Leadership Institute is committed to developing leaders that make a difference. We strive to lead by example in all that we do and strongly believe that people follow leaders because of their passion, vision, integrity, and love for people. We promote the importance of a “What Matters Most” focus and encourage leaders to choose a life of significance!
Obtaining a “What Matters Most” focus requires work. We must allow ourselves to continue to grow no matter what stage we are at in our lives. We have to let go of our “we already know it all” mentality. Even if we think we know it all, maybe we can gain a different perspective. Robert Brault said, “Each day learn something new, and just as important, relearn something old.”
If we continue to learn, we can continue to teach. We can continue to grow. I encourage you to plant your seeds of success today. I encourage you to challenge yourself to learn something new everyday and to continue growing. I encourage you to answer the call to leadership!
