Great Leaders Self Reflect

I've been reflecting....

While working with a group of leaders in agriculture last week we spoke about the importance of self reflection. It was a newish idea for many and for others it isn't something they have consciously practised or built as a leadership habit.  Great leaders reflect on their behaviours, conversations and achievements each and every day.  Give it a go. 


"Leaders who don't take time to reflect regularly on themselves and where they're headed risk bumping into (avoidable) failure time and time again. Self-reflection is a humbling, yet powerful technique that helps leaders (and anyone else) to improve their performance." Unknown

Leadership Lift Off

We are so excited here at RuralScope.  We turn 20 years old in 2020.  We are celebrating by sharing 20 stories across 20 months.  These will include highlights, lowlights and learnings.  A unique insight into our development - personal and business for you.  Our aim is to share learnings to support others who live and work across rural Australia.   

This is our third story in the series and it’s all about how we got into the leadership in agriculture space.  And the people who helped us do it.   

Our first large scale project in agriculture, Dairying Beyond 2000 was coming to an end.  Feedback highlighted our team had led and implemented a bit of a game changer.  I remember being told that the dairy industry had not seen the level of engagement with growers and all across the supply chain as they had seen in Dairying Beyond 2000.  A big tick and confidence boost for us.  I was relieved that the industry’s chance on us had paid off and pleased that I had coordinated a project that delivered direct benefit to farmers, many facing their biggest challenge in generations.  We had tapped into the 3F’s – Farm, Family and Finance and it was the “people stuff” (as many called it) that had left a mark.

Clarity Comes before Confidence

Clarity comes before confidence is a simple concept.  Try putting it into practise and you will find that it's not as easy as it first sounds.  Master the simplicity of it and you will be well on your way to building success in both your work and personal lives. Clarity is all about being coherent, understanding and planning what you want to say before you say it. Knowing what your vision is and then taking the steps to get there.  Being clear about who you are and what is important to you, your team, your business, your project etc, means that you will be able to say no to opportunities that present but don't fit with your direction.  This is a deal maker as so many people talk with me about being over loaded and not even having enough time for themselves.  If you are clear about your focus, vision or future then you will have the confidence to say no and to put in place the actions and steps that really matter. Here are 9 tips to help....

One Minute Manager

Our Director, Jo Eady, was recently invited to be an after dinner speaker at a number of Crop Consultant Australia (CCA) forums across Australia.  With the topic of People and Personalities - Making the Most of Your Business Relationships, a challenge was to make the session relevant, timely and practical so that those who attended could take away some here and now tips and tools to use in their business and with their clients.  In addition to the MBTI refresher workshop, Jo also facilitated a session of wisdom sharing where she asked the audience to think about something they do in their business that is key to its success.  There was no shortage of tips. And Jo shared the wisdom of the One Minute Manager. Read here about One Minute Goals, One Minute Praisings and One Minute Re-directs.

Leading on the Edge
WOW what an inspiration!  Our Director, Jo Eady attended the recent Australian Cotton Conference and came back to the office raving about the key note presentation from Rachael Robertson.  Rachael was one of the youngest people to ever lead an Antarctic expedition and one of the first women.  In this pressure cooker environment, Rachael was forced to develop strategies to deal with the isolation, scrutiny and demands of extreme leadership.  With no way in and no way out she had to make it work.  Rachael is a down to earth, authentic, resilient and innovative leader, highly regarded by those she leads.  Read on to find out the six things that she believes led her expeditioners to rank her as 'inspirational'.  And then apply these to your own situations......
