Intentional Growth

Jan 29, 2019

Do you have a growth plan?

I was never really asked that question or even really took time to think about it.  I have always been an extremely motivated person.  What I realized was I wanted more and more growth, but seemed to end up in the same place.

I was going to more and more classes on cutting hair and styling hair, spending my time around the most influential people in my industry.  Technically, “I made it.”

However, I was not fulfilled.  The people around me were bringing me down and always negative.  For the life of me, I couldn’t change it! 

Do you have a growth plan?  Do you assume you will grow just with age and chance?  What pushed me to grow into more leadership learning was frustration.  Constantly pushing others and getting so much resistance caused me to think, “I am doing the same thing and getting the same results.  Something has to change.”

The shift:  I always had a skill growth plan!  I learned how to do hair better and better.  However, I realized I was lacking the tools to help others reach beyond their potential. 

I was thinking constantly something has to change.  That is when I really thought about my biggest challenges.  For some much needed guidance, I joined the John Maxwell program and really learned what being intentional about growth means:

  1. Leadership – It was time to focus on how to lead better and learn everything there is to know about this subject.
  2. Understand – I have responsibilities to serve my team as a leader and step out of thinking like a stylist. This was and still is difficult for me.
  3. Courage - A  valiant effort to not be afraid of what other people think. My purpose is to help others reach their potential whether it is through teaching them how to do a better haircut, providing extraordinary service and lead better. 

My challenge to you is to think about the question:  what is your growth plan?  What is the scariest move you need to make to grow?  Is it your leadership?  Is it your skill?  Is it your time management?
