How to Be a Leader Without a Team: Embodied Leadership

Are you preparing to lead a team but don't have one yet? This is one of the most commonly asked questions I get. 

Leadership is an extensive topic, and you might be wondering where to start so you can start calling in your dream team members.

One of the most powerful strategies for cultivating leadership is leading yourself in a public way. This means declaring your intentions and goals, and then holding yourself accountable for achieving them.

For example, you can post on social media on Monday what you plan to do for the week, including other areas of your life such as fitness, reading, or personal development. Then, at the end of the week, you can report back and declare what you accomplished and share your journey throughout the week.

By doing this, you position yourself as a leader compared to others who don't actually keep their word with themselves. This demonstrates that you follow through on what you say you're going to do, which is an attractive quality for people to look up to and want to learn from, this is LEADERSHIP.

Even if you don't have sales yet, demonstrating your certainty and conviction in what you're creating and inviting people to hold themselves accountable with you is a powerful way to attract potential team members. They need leadership and accountability, and by providing it, you demonstrate that you have the conviction and certainty that you will succeed together.

Consistently leading yourself in this way will attract sales, which will eventually lead to a team. Once you have team members, it's important to create a culture of accountability and ownership. You can do this by setting clear expectations and holding team members accountable for their commitments.

Embodying leadership is about leading yourself first and demonstrating that you can follow through on what you say you're going to do. 

By doing so, you will attract potential team members and create a culture of accountability and ownership.
