The Four Agreements Leadership

Here are the four agreements that you might consider life rules or guidelines on life: If you put these four agreements into practice and are intentionally, you will be more aware of themselves. And instead of trying to do your best, you have other perspectives that will help you improve and be a more effective leader.

For example, focus on being blameless with your word and talking about it for an entire week. Or focus on not taking things personally. The four chords are simple, but powerful. All you need to do is put them into practice consistently. Here are three places to start: this one is simple: TELL THE TRUTH.

I`m just trying to say what I mean, showing my colleagues and clients that I can be trusted. ESPECIALLY NOW THAT COVID-19 IS INFAMOUS FOR STEALING THE TRUST WE HAVE IN EACH OTHER. AND IN THE WORLD AS A WHOLE. I firmly believe that those who, by their words, are beyond reproach are more likely to be welcomed into team projects, deserve leadership and get more business. And the fourth chord of always doing your best is almost like the combination of all….
