Leaders Should Be Worthy in These 3 Areas
Are you worthy in your roles, responsibilities and platforms?
Glen Jackson, co-founder of marketing communications agency Jackson Spalding, explains why leaders should strive to be worthy in three particular areas of their lives.
“You've got to be worthy with the roles you've been given, personally and professionally,” says Glen. “You have to be worthy with the responsibilities you assume, personally and professionally. Then you have to be worthy with the platforms you've been given.”

On the roles part, it's mothers and fathers. That's a role. It's sisters and brothers, it's friends. It's the roles you have. Be worthy. And the responsibilities you have no matter what those may be, be worthy. In the platforms you've been given, my role on this is if you wing it, you ding it, if you prepare for it, you reinforce it.
So whatever you've been given from a platform standpoint, a chance to speak, a chance to represent your business at an event, and you've got to say a few words, prepare for it to reinforce the brand and yourself. Success is sweaty, it's not sexy. Success is arduous, it's not glamorous.
Brad Lomenick writes in his book about humility and hunger, and hustle that it's better to be interested than interesting. So learn at early age to ask a lot of questions, and be interested in the person you're meeting, and get to know them. And not try to be interesting all the time, be interested. There's a difference.
