We all strive to be a leader or a high performer. Whether you are a freelancer, manager or member in a team, you want to lead your situations and solve problems. As leaders, we sometimes ask ourselves this imperative question: How do we develop our leadership skills to become successful leaders? There are many materials available, but how do you practice the learnings in your day-to-day routine?
A researcher at Duke University found that more than 40 percent of the actions performed by people each day weren’t actual decisions, but habits.
When you rise in the morning, you determine nearly half of your day by the patterns you’ve either intentionally created or passively allowed.
The answer lies in setting the right intentions every morning and practicing reflections so that you can proactively improve your leadership skills with the power of your mind. It can be done by journaling daily on a diary, but it is static and not interactive enough for some people.
Rocky is an AI leadership coach. Rocky is a conversational AI that asks you the right questions, gives supports to help you become more self-aware and mindful about how you spend your day and interact with your team.
With Rocky AI, leaders can do daily primings & reflections from conversations with Rocky AI to practice:
