20 Habits of an Effective Leader

H3 Leadership ImageI’m excited to begin reading Brad Lomenick’s new book, H3 Leadership: Be Humble, Stay Hungry, and Always Hustle. His book seeks to answer three questions: 1) Who are you? 2) Where are you going? 3) How will you get there?

In order to answer these questions, you must cultivate these 20 habits:

  1. A Habit of Self-Discovery: Know who you are
  2. A Habit of Openness: Share the real you with others
  3. A Habit of Meekness: Remember it’s not about you
  4. A Habit of Conviction: Stick to your principles
  5. A Habit of Faith: Prioritize your day so God is first
  6. A Habit of Assignment: Live out your calling
  7. A Habit of Ambition: Develop an appetite for what’s next
  8. A Habit of Curiosity: Keep Learning
  9. A Habit of Passion: Love what you do
  10. A Habit of Innovation: Stay current, creative, and engaged
  11. A Habit of Inspiration: Nurture a vision for a better tomorrow
  12. A Habit of Bravery: Take calculated risks
  13. A Habit of Excellence: Set standards that scare you
  14. A Habit of Stick-with-it-ness: Take the long view
  15. A Habit of Execution: Commit to completion
  16. A Habit of Team Building: Create an environment that attracts and retains the best and brightest
  17. A Habit of Partnership: Collaborate with colleagues and competitors
  18. A Habit of Margin: Nurture healthier rythms
  19. A Habit of Generosity: Leave the world a better place
  20. A Habit of Succession: Find power in passing the baton

Take a personal inventory of which habits you do well and which one’s you struggle with, then give the book a read!
