Finding My Greatness Zone | Leading Leaders to Greater Success

Finding My Greatness Zone | Leading Leaders to Greater Success | Leadership | Scoop.it

My Greatness Zone is a result of the passion when I find my unique contribution and live it. It is the place one can change the world for the better in some way. Cindy shares how she has found hers.

We are interdependent.  We are herd/pack animals euphemistically calling ourselves social animals. It is with the help of others tht we reach our greatness.  That Greatness Zone lays in what Suzanne Livingston calls: My unique contribution. For me that is my passion around servant-leadership and building community.  Cindy shares well how the work as a fellow Vistage/TEC Chair has allowed me to fulfill my passion for the past 27 years.


Cindy talks about being good at what she did. She also mentions "I found I became bored easily"  When I can do something well and it becomes  habit, I can coast.  And you know what they say about coasting.  When you're coasting you're going downhill.


The challenge that Lee Thayer throws down is: How will I be better tomorrow that I was today in living my life and performing better than I was today personally and professionally?


Cindy has found her unique contribution that challenges her daily to be better than yesterday.


Remember, I cannot motivate another person. Motivation comes from within.


Motivation:  the state or condition of being motivated.

Motivate:     Providing motive.

Motive:        Goals or objectives of one's actions.Random House Dictionary


You may be able to inspire me, however it is up to me to achieve the "goals or objectives my one's actions."

What is the Relationship Between Culture and Strategy

What is the Relationship Between Culture and Strategy | Leadership | Scoop.it

Corporate culture is an incredibly powerful factor in a company’s long-term success. No matter how good your strategy is, when it comes down to it, people always make the difference. Strategy is rational and culture is emotional.

Good one on strategy. I really like the simple definition of strategy.

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, June 28, 2013 9:36 AM

Strategy is what drives the organization as a whole... Organizations are complex interrelationships of human beings... Culture is the human element of the organization.

From the article: "One of the most dramatic changes in leadership development in the last decade has been the shift in focus from correcting weaknesses to identifying and expanding on strengths. As this movement continues to catch hold, three myths have emerged that deserve to be dispelled."

Steps for Better Storytelling

Steps for Better Storytelling | Leadership | Scoop.it

Great leaders tell great stories. It’s the reason Steve Jobs sold millions of iPods by skipping the technical specifications and simply stating that one thousand songs could now fit in your pocket.
