Recall your stories through maxims

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

U.S. Army veteran Mike Figliuolo thinks you should be able to fit the leadership principles you live by onto a single sheet of paper.

In his book, the author of One Piece of Paper talks about what makes maxims so important, how they change and how you can communicate them.

A maxim is just a trigger, he says, that will resonate with you. It should remind you of something that changed your life, steer you toward your values and help you decide what to do.

Your maxim, like a song lyric, “triggers all those feelings inside of you, and those feelings are what are going to get you to behave differently,” Figliuolo says. “It’s very easy for me to ignore a platitude like ‘Be the best that I can be,’ but when I tap into something much more emotional, much more personal, it’s a lot harder to ignore.”
