John Michel's curator insight, April 3, 2013 11:05 PM

The experiences that motivate us the most as leaders are the times when we grow the most. We grow wiser or more effective as we learn from our mistakes. We grow deeper as we gain more intimate appreciation for our truest selves. We grow into new responsibilities to meet new challenges, and we may grow complacent. We grow by working as well as we can, and we grow by spending time in reflection.

David Hain's insight:

A call to arms from Gary Hamel and colleagues, quote:

 

'In the future, a company that strives to build a leadership advantage will need more than a celebrity CEO and a corporate university that serves up tasty educational morsels to the "high potentials." It will need an organizational model that gives everyone the chance to lead if they're capable; and a talent development model that helps everyone to become capable.'

6 Steps to Live Fearless and Free

6 Steps to Live Fearless and Free | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Fear is a universal experience - read the story!

David Hain's insight:

From Terri's must read blog...

 

'Last weekend, I had the privilege of delivering my first ever keynote speech for the Hay House I Can Do It—IGNITE! conference. I was excited and nervous but ready.

As a therapist, I share stories, sometimes my own, if I believe it will help a client or illustrate a point. But standing in front of 2,500 people and being live streamed around the world to many many more people while sharing my actual life story was a totally new experience and made me feel vulnerable in a way that surprised me.

So many people came up to me after my talk to say they felt like I was talking directly to them and/or about them. It reinforced how much more alike than different we humans are.'

John Michel's curator insight, April 5, 2013 4:26 PM

You have the power to free yourself from the mental prison that fear creates. Anything worth having is worth working for, and you deserve to live fearless and free.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 4, 2013 9:30 AM

I always appreciate articles by Ron Whitaker, this one especially. 

 

From the article:

 

Take a minute, right now, to download and print the About Leaders goal setting worksheet. Get a pencil with a nice eraser to make editing easier and write down a goal that is extremely important to you.

 

Here are some questions to use when you are mapping out your goal.  Have fun with this and don’t get hung up on whether you think your goal is possible or not.

 

~What is the most important goal you want to accomplish, your life goal?

~What are the most important things in your life right now? Do they fit with your life goal?

~What are the obstacles to achieving your life goal? Money, time, work, responsibilities, etc.

~How can you overcome any obstacles?

~If you feel you’re off track, how will you get back on track?

donhornsby's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:23 AM

(From the article): If someone woke you up at 3 o’clock in the morning, out of a deep sleep, and asked:What is the one thing, the biggest thing, you want to accomplish in life? What would you say? What would be the first thing that comes to mind – your automatic response? That’s your primary life goal.

David Hain's insight:

Great article about leadership the world over!  Quote:-

 

"I believe that we all of us can make a difference and have a positive impact on others. The key is to believe that we can. As Kouzes and Posner share, “You don’t have to look up for leadership. You don’t have to look out for leadership. You only have to look inward. You have the potential to lead others.”

John Michel's curator insight, April 4, 2013 8:43 AM

Most of us are in positions and relationships where you may be called upon to lead. You do not need to be CEO, you do not have to be head of a company or an organization. You do not have to be a boss. You can be you and you can lead whether you are a husband, father, friend or co-worker. No one can make you, but if you do want to make a difference, to change a life or to affirm your own life, maybe it is time for you to step out and step up and lead. But it is up to you.
