Can you express your leadership principles on one piece of paper with maybe 15-25 bullet points? How powerful would it be to have such documentation in front of you every day? Mark Figliuolo in One Piece of Paper-The Simple Approach to Powerful, Personal Leadership describes the following approach. Remember this is not intended to be a complete review but some key points for pharmacy leaders. Seek out the book or Book Summary www.summary.com if this material interests you.
The author indicates the following four areas are critical to effective leadership.
Leading yourself- Ask yourself what motivates you and what are your rules of personal conduct/values? What do you want the “future you” to be?
Leading the thinking-Ask where are you taking your workgroup/department and how will you lead the innovations needed?
Leading your people-how can you lead your people as individuals rather than treating them like interchangeable parts?
Leading a balanced life-if you burnout you are worthless so how do you define and achieve integration/balance of your career and life?
