Are you looking to make a change in your life that could lead to a better role, new career, or professional success? Learning how to create new habits is the most natural place to start your journey!
As you begin taking a deeper look at your most frequent actions, you may be surprised to notice there is a lot more that goes into building new habits than you realized—especially into building habits that support your leadership goals. First, you have to analyze your current habits and determine which are getting you closer to your goals and which are not. Then, you need to find out if you should be adding new habits to your life. From there, you’ll dive into the habit making process and begin changing your behaviors by intentionally setting up a routine that encourages you to transform a new behavior to a common habit.
A robust healthcare and wellness industry has made us familiar with the idea of developing stronger habits around physical activity and nutrition, but where can you find guidance on creating habits that will improve your leadership skills? Luckily, there are engineers, physiologists, psychologists, salespeople, and executives who have studied habit building for leadership growth and published some fascinating books with their research, strategies, and advice.
