Everyone needs correction.
No one knows it all.
Husbands and wives, managers, executives, parents, and students need correction. Correction is essential to reaching higher
Wise leaders seek wise, experienced individuals for correction.
Five marks of good correctors:
- They listen very well.
- They understand your vision for life
- They have walked the walk already
- They have obvious skills
- They have success in areas we pursue
You need many correctors. Go to one individual for management correction and another for relationship correction and still another for leadership correction.
Good correctors are rare.
Good correctors are probably busy.
You’ll have to work hard to find good correctors.
Successful leaders reach higher by seeking correction.
Who corrects you?
Would a corrector also encourage you to move foward in life?
Thanks for jumping in.
I chose the term corrector rather than coach or mentor because of the nature of the task. For me, a corrector doesn’t need to encourage me to move forward… I’m usually going too fast and I need correcting. I do have friends who sometimes need a swift kick if you know what I mean. Bottom line Chuck, I wasn’t thinking of a person who prods us along. Even though, we all need someone like that from time to time. Sometimes I am the person who encourages a person to move forward… I say things like, you are reaching too low… OR …thats too attainable, what goal can we set that really stretches you. What are you thinking about Chuck?
leadership freak Dan
I see your point Dan thank you. Maybe the word should have been influence rather than encourage.like a bullet moving foward not moving,budging or correcting it’s path,unlike a coment being influenced by the bodies around it yet it stills moves foward.
