Step 3 - Action

Declare your intention and take action. You have reflected on feedback related to your performance and working style. You have thought about your goals and long-term aspirations. You have considered what leadership characteristics are most important for your current role and your career goals. You are ready to commit to action. First, state your intention. Out loud. In front of other people - your colleagues, direct reports, spouse. They will not only hold you accountable but they can also provide support. Now, do something. Build momentum. Experiment. Practice. Get feedback. Practice some more. Get more feedback. Continuing practice with feedback is a key to building your skills and reaching your potential.
