HALT! Who Are You?! Where Are You Going?!

I once read a story of a priest who was out for an evening stroll and was stopped by a soldier on patrol. The soldier barked, Halt! Who are you? Where are you going? The Priest, startled at first, regained his composure and asked the soldier if he would be so kind as to stop him every night and ask him these two questions.

As a leader you need a clear and concise answer to these two questions to share with your team. You owe them this as they chose to follow you. I have found the best way to hone your ability to answer these questions is to perfect the elevator speech.

Hi my name is Ron Hurst. I am a leadership development specialist with a passion for developing the leadership capacity of others. I absolutely love to watch people grow, to invest in their success. When I see a new leader spread their wings and take flight it gives me great joy. I use simple models, easy to use tools and straight forward language. I demand commitment and passion for achieving the outcome. Those who join me will not regret it. I am looking for a few potential leaders who want to join me.

Who are you? Where are you going?

Good luck on your elevator speech

lead well
