Leadership development is a process.  Leaders are not born; they learn, grow, and progress over time.  Taking time to focus on your own development as a leader can have profoundly positive effects for you, your team, and your practice.  

In this episode, Aspire founder and leadership consultant Randy Hall along with Dr. Julie Reck, owner and founder of Veterinary Medical Center of Fort Mill in South Carolina, share the five foundational principles you can use to reach your full leadership potential.

  • Choice
    Decide what kind of leader you want to become and how you want to impact others as a result of your leadership.
  • Capability
    Consider the skills that are needed to become the type of leader you envision.
  • Competence
    Practice those skills and build habits to become competent.
  • Mastery
    Once you have mastered these skills, you will perform them in an automatic, unconscious, and consistent way.
  • Multiplication
    Help others around you develop their own leadership skills.
