5 Signs Your Leadership Is Running on Empty

Is your cup half empty or half full? Is your leadership running on empty? Use these 5 signs to make sure you have a positive impact on the team.

Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are usually right. – Henry Ford

5 Signs Your Leadership Is Running on Empty

When your leadership is running on empty, you stop others from realizing their full potential.

How you lead directly influences team performance.

Think about the following questions, and jot down your answers.

  1. Do you have a clear vision, with clear goals for the team?
  2. Do you start each day you start work full of energy?
  3. Are you positive and upbeat about your job and the team’s work?
  4. When something goes awry, do you learn from the experience?
  5. When the best laid plans fail, do you bounce back?

What were your answers? Yes… no… occasionally?

Let me be blunt. Anything short of 5 affirmatives and your leadership is probably running on empty.

Indeed, when your cup is half empty, you are an energy-sapper. You’re saying it’s okay to do an average job. You’re saying commitment isn’t necessary. And you're setting a bad example.

Your team looks to you for inspiration and motivation.

Stick with me, and I’ll show you what to do.
