Catalyst One Day Session 2: Craig Groeschel – 5 Ways to Break Your Leadership Barriers

5 Things to Change About How You Think

1. Change what you believe is possible.

  • If you don’t believe something can be done, you’ll prove it can’t.
  • You can make excuses or you can make progress, but you can’t make both.

2. Change the way you structure your organization.

Structuring for Growth

  • Empower the board to oversee not manage.
  • Develop a right hand team not a right hand person.
  • Keep the number of directional decision makers small.
  • Drive non-directional decisions deeper into the organization.

3. Change how you empower to grow or help them to go.

Making the Developmental Conversation Easier

  • Things aren’t going well.
  • I want you to succeed. I’ll do everything I can to help you.
  • We’re going to meet regularly to evaluate your progress.
  • If you can’t get there, we are going to have to make a change.

4. Change how you think about your goals.

Create Short Term Wins

  • Your goals should be measurable and defined.
  • The distance between the goal and the win should be short.

5. Change what you believe about yourself.
