Quite often we are worried about ourselves. What will we do? How does this impact me? How is this conversation going to get them to like/respect/follow me? All the while, we’re not thinking about the true meaning of leadership: to inspire, empower and serve in order to elevate others over an extended period of time.
We are all guilty. But there’s a method you can put into place to ensure you always have “serve” front and center in any situation. It’s called the PTS Method and it stands for Prepare to Serve.
Here’s how you use it. Every time you change environments, say to yourself, “prepare to serve”. You enter a meeting with your team: prepare to serve
You are logging into a conference call with a client: prepare to serve
You are opening the door to your house in the evening: prepare to serve.
This is not just for those leading teams at work. This is for everyone. Making this a habit will absolutely change your life and the lives of those around you.
