On This Day in Leadership History, October 4, 2015

On this day in leadership history in 1931, the comic strip “Dick Tracy” made its debut in the Detroit Daily Mirror. The strip was created by Chester Gould. Whether it’s creating comic trips or working in a Fortune 500 organization with thousands of employees, leaders must stay true to their natural behaviors, talents, and experiences to be most successful. You’ll never make it if you try to be someone else. You can be the authentic you!

Building Your Leadership Credibility – Three Values Checklist Items

Do you want to be taken seriously as an authentic leader that others consistently want to follow? Clarifying, committing, and acting in alignment with your personal values will make a difference.

Lee provides the short checklist below to help you confirm your personal values –

  1. Clarify Your Values. What do you really believe? Who are you? What do you stand for? Reflect on the foundation of your beliefs. Your faith, your family teaching, your professional ethics, your patriotism, your sense of community. What are your non-negotiables? The Honor Code would be a good place to start.
  2. Commit and Stand Courageously. Will you stand firm in the face of a busy schedule, unfair competition, the need to look good, the desire to meet legitimate desires for comfort and pleasure in ways that compromise your values? Recognize that your doubts and fears will take you out. Commit to suffer and sacrifice to remain faithful to your values.
  3. Act in Congruence with Who You Are. Be true to yourself. It’s not easy; we are humans and not firm and fixed. We operate by ebbs and flows of our commitment. Fight the battle to keep your honor intact and when you fail, admit it and bounce back.

Please also share your wisdom and experience in this forum on building a values plan –
