Who Am I? What Are My Expectations?
Some say, “It’s all about me.” Well, this page is about me. Who I am, and what I expect from the world around me.
My life is primarily about leadership. I have high expectations for myself. I expect integrity, hard work, and lots of fun from life.
What is my idea of leadership? It’s taking care of people. It means I work a lot harder, and a lot longer, to make sure I’ve taken care of those who I serve.
Leadership is the active practice of ensuring through example that all people are respected, appreciated and valued. Further more, I don’t expect your respect. However, I do expect to earn it.
I’d rather have your respect than be your friend. That said, if I can be your respected friend, that is even better. That is, after all, the highest level of engagement.
As a “boss” so to speak, I have many significant and important duties to perform. I promise you’ll find me authentic. I am who I am. I am not trying to be someone else. I expect to have fun carrying out my responsibilities, and expect you will discover work is actually a rewarding experience.
You already know I’m a human being, and you already know I make mistakes because of my human condition. I will not try to convince you otherwise. In the midst of my humanity, I will always strive to be the best I can be, and to treat others with respect and dignity. I will always take my responsibility, not myself, seriously.
Said another way, I don’t take myself too seriously. I take my responsibility to you and to the organization with the greatest seriousness, however.
As we get to know each other, it is my hope that relationships will be created and bonds forged. Life is so much richer when the people we spend so many hours with each day can work together to achieve a common goal. In our work lives, that goal is rich and even varied. We work for the well being of others, and for our own livelihood.
