Seth Godin, the author, entrepreneur and marketer whose thinking I truly admire, said:
“It’s possible that you are the way you are, that you do what you do, that you react as you react—and that it can never be changed.
Believing this is incredibly sad though.
Each of us is capable of just a little more.
A little more patience, a little more insight, a little more generosity.
And, if you can do a little more, then, of course, you can repeat those changes until you’ve done a lot more.”
I Don’t Know About You, But I Find This Thinking To Be Incredibly Motivating
It begs these questions:
- Where do I want to be different? Which of my behaviours and practices could I refine?
- What is it about my leadership that stops me from feeling totally proud of who I am as a leader?
- And, most importantly, what are the one or two things that that I could do differently?
Your Call to Action
As a leader, what will you do differently that’ll put a genuine smile on your face and have you feeling totally proud of who you are?
“I appreciated the opportunity to discuss specific matters affecting my role and getting
tangible, immediate ideas on how to best address them. Having someone
independent review the situation was very helpful—and refreshing.
I recommend Carolyn’s coaching to anyone who wants to lift their game,
improve their influence and kick some goals (not just set them).
Thank you, Carolyn, for your amazing active listening skills and genuine
empathy for all that I shared. I found the time very valuable.”
