I looked to Albert Einstein for guidance as he suggested that “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. So in 60 minutes, 13 slides, and 2 exercises I believe we did just that, and demystified leadership with an ambitious objective of… visualize leadership, give it up (aka sacrifice what’s in your way of focus), and embrace change and failure.
And here’s a simple 3-step exercise as an example. Step 1… think about a leader you admire, that inspires you. They could be anyone; family member, businessperson, historical figure, politician, religious figure, fictional person, alive or passed. Step 2… list the characteristics you admire most about this leader. With these steps you’re sure to gain some interesting insights. But the valuable stuff comes in the third step dealing with what it means and how it might work for you. And for that it’s a brief conversation with me. If that’s tempting at all, drop me a line.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”. These famous words from Mahatma Gandhi were our inspiration today as I presented and the team explored this topic of Demystifying Leadership. This, our March online Leadership Fitness Camp webinar followed last month’s impactful The Examined Live Worth Living that focused on self-awareness in a leader.
Does this actually work you ask? “I couldn’t wait for this” said one of our participants who attended her first camp a few weeks ago. Our online Leadership Fitness Camp webinars/group coaching are perfect for rookie, veteran and wannabe managers. Valuable, efficient, convenient, accessible and affordable… they’re designed to provide subscribers a steady, monthly dose of muscle-building, practical and applicable leadership learning and practices.
If you’re curious, considering, or committed to being the best and most effective leader you can be, then please drop me a line and let’s talk.
