Traditionally the SMARTA acronym has been used in relation to setting well crafted goals. I’ve turned it on its head a little as a way of articulating the values I hold most dear when I engage with others, and my aspirations regarding my own developmental journey.
Having clear insight into your strengths, weaknesses and habitual assumptions, plus an awareness of how others perceive you.
Practising the capacity to be fully conscious, aware and present in the moment.
Recognising that you are enough, and you have enough.
Tuning in to what drives you - your triggers, fears, motivators and desires - then being honest and brave enough to own them.
No hidden agendas. Open and authentic dialogue.
To yourself, to those you lead, and to those who lead you.
The goal is not to do business with everybody who needs what you have. The goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe.
