JLBC: Leaders

JLBC: Leaders

“Leaders take responsibility for their actions.”

Therefore, to become a successful leader, you will need to practice self-management, the process of directing and controlling your actions to achieve your life goals. If you have good self-management skills, you take ownership of the goals you set for



1. Define the term self-management.

2. Defend the idea that good leaders need to develop self-

management skills.

yourself, the decisions you make, how you use your time, and how you control stress in your life.



3. Describe the concept of a “future picture.”

4. Outline the steps used in the goal-setting process.

5. Describe the benefits of setting personal goals.

A goal is simply a dream with a deadline. Objectives describe what you want to achieve in your life. They are the destinations you hope to reach at the end of your journeys. Objectives describe where you are going; they do not try to explain the less important details of how you will get there. Good leaders will set short, medium, and long-range goals for themselves and use those goals as beacons to guide their every action.

Future Picture. One way to set goals for yourself is by imagining a “future picture,” a clear and compelling description of what you want your life to look like at some point in the future.2 Your task as a leader is not only to describe that future picture but to make sure all of your actions bring you a step closer to it.
