The evolution of leadership has been coming for some time now. All things evolve. Markets evolve. People evolve. Leadership must evolve too. One of the most significant shifts is the focus on leaders to encourage others to feel like it is there company. It can be noticed in the words they use. Today I talk about how you should encourage others to say "our company" because when they feel like it truly is "our" company, they will show up in new ways. The evolution of leadership is here.

Do you take time for yourself? No really think about that question. Are you intentional with your self-care? I find that leaders are so focused on goals, growth, and others that often they make excuses about not taking time for themselves. This is about the three ways you can set up self-care when you lead others.
