Be Proactive

“Planning is bringing the future into the present, so you can do something about it now.” ~ Alan Lakein

Make proactive thinking a natural and consistent part of your makeup as a leader. With proactive thinking you don’t have to settle for life the way it comes to you; you can design your life to come to you the way you want it.

Inspirational coaches typically model proactive behavior in all things, large and small. Teach your team members to connect today with their future by “looking ahead to get ahead.” Motivate your team to look out on the horizon for emerging opportunities before they become obvious to everyone else.

Urge them to pre-plan their activities on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly basis. Pre-plan their next day the night before; and pre-plan their next week the Thursday before. By aligning their daily and weekly activities with their overarching long-term goals, they will achieve their goals quicker, easier and more predictably.
