* It is important to understand that the success of each building block fully depends on the cultivation of the other pillars.
WHAT OUR DEFINITION OF RESPONSIBILITY IS:
Responsibility is acting upon and following through with obligations and commitments.
WHY RESPONSIBILITY IS SO IMPORTANT:
Responsible behavior means doing what needs to be done rain or shine, easy or difficult, feel like it or not, and even if it is inconvenient. This integral action builds character, boosts confidence, fosters trust, and sets us on the path to becoming strong leaders. It is a character trait that increases our overall well-being and our chances of becoming influential and successful in whatever we choose to do in life.
However, responsibility is more complex than that. It takes a great deal of self-management. To do well, you need to allocate the right amount of time, and not overload yourself. It may mean that you have to say “no” to new and more exciting projects in order to fulfill the promises you've already made. By following through with your commitments, you demonstrate loyalty and reliability. This will result in a happy and balanced life.
On the other hand, not taking care of our obligations responsibly causes disorder, disappointments, and chaos. This leads to stress and anxiety that can manifest into other bad habits. Eventually, a lifetime of irresponsibility can result in a mental breakdown and serious health issues.
WHERE RESPONSIBILITY FITS INTO YOUR PERSONAL BRAND:
Your personal brand is YOU! It is everything that makes you who you are and how others experience you.
Here's the thing, most people never experience the real YOU because it's buried behind insecurities, fears, traumas, anxiety, overwhelm, and lack of self-awareness and self-development.
Part of building a confident and healthy personal brand depends heavily on responsibility, which is the spine of your character. Being a responsible person establishes you as someone who makes good choices, can be trusted, and is dependable. This is vital to our well-being, relationships, and success in life.
After 20 years of creating celebrity personal brands using social and emotional intelligence as the foundation, Jonathan George joined forces with Shylla Webb to create one of the most innovative deliveries of SEL. Jonathan has built the brands for some of the biggest young names in Hollywood who have over 150 million online followers. Shylla is a 23-year education veteran and SEL creative.
The techniques of personal branding and the R..O.C.K.S.T.A.R method of Social Emotional Learning together forge a unique and ground-breaking formula that is a game-changer in the effectiveness of social and emotional learning in education.
HOW TO DEVELOP RESPONSIBILITY:
To make healthy choices, either as an educator or a student, it is essential that you develop self-awareness, so that you know why you do what you do, what your clear intentions are, and how you want others to experience you. Once you understand these things then it makes it easier to show up responsibly. To understand how this all works together, here is a clear path to developing responsibility:
Identification and correction of mistakes
TOOLS TO DEVELOP RESPONSIBILITY:
We believe that responsibility is the key to your overall success, happiness, mental health, confidence, and impact on the world. We also believe that personal expansion should be exciting and experiential. That is why, in our Rock My Campus Professional Development Rockshops and Student Rockshops, we approach self-management in a fun and interactive way.
We dive deep into:
Choose a task
Identify why it is important to finalize the task
Define clear goals and expectations for the task
Define steps to completing the task
Identify how you want others to feel about you and your performance while you accomplish your task
Set a deadline for the task to be completed
Appoint an accountability partner who will help you keep on task
Allow for mistakes without self-judgment
Celebrate successes as long the way
Identify what went well
Identify what improvements need to be made and make them
Your success will depend on how and to what degree you apply discipline to the task you set.
Here's one of the most powerful goal-setting tools to help you successfully achieve Responsibility:
