As a member of Platform University, a membership site created by Michael Hyatt to help people build their personal brand, I was excited to hear I had won a Member Makeover.
This is a personal critique of your platform/website/personal brand by Michael Hyatt and his team. They review your blog and social media accounts, and give you actionable tips to help you reach your goals online.
I learned several things from my makeover. They suggested things like getting a new theme for my blog, clarifying my goals and messaging, and working on my “About Me” page.
With the help of my wife, I’ve already started making some of the changes they recommended. As a leader, just because an opportunity comes for you to learn from another leader, that doesn’t mean it is easy. Even if that leader is Michael Hyatt.
Making the most of our learning opportunities requires three traits.
1. Learning from other leaders requires humility.
I personally tend to be confident about what I do online, even though I know there are many things I can do better. However, when the opportunity comes for us to learn from someone else, we must remember we do not know everything.
2. Learning from other leaders requires teach-ability.
It is natural to get used to doing things a certain way. But, sometimes there are more effective ways to get things done, even though we may like the way we are currently doing them.
3. Learning from other leaders requires flexibility.
Learning can lead to change. And change can be hard. It can also be frustrating, especially when you have worked long and hard on something. But change comes before growth, so if we want to keep growing we must remain flexible. (Tweet That!)
An opportunity to receive personal input from someone we admire doesn’t happen often. But there will be many opportunities for us to learn new things from other leaders around us if we keep our eyes open. Do not miss out!
