Today’s show is brought to you by Brandon Dawson, the CEO and founder of Audigy Group and Stratus Dental Group. Brandon is a sought-after lecturer and CEO advisor on topics of entrepreneurship and leadership. The following excerpt was taken from a recent public speaking appearance that Brandon made to a conference of audiologists and dentists.
If you want to change your business, you have to change your thinking. Broken results occur because of broken thinking. And when that broken thinking is something that’s so ingrained innately in you because it’s the way you’ve always been, changing your thinking to change your results requires you to lead yourself.
How do you change other people’s thinking? How do you break through false beliefs and limitations if you can’t demonstrate that you can do that for yourself first? Well, this is why the leadership lid– this is the sole purpose of what Maxwell talks about, because all this is actually leadership.
But the leadership lid says, first, I gotta learn to change myself. When I learn to change myself, I will then be an example and have the respect of those around me to want to change themselves. And I can show them how to do it. So first, I learn to lead me. Then, I learn to lead we.
