What Does Leadership Look Like?
As a leadership and personal development coach, there’s one question I get far more than any other. That question is, “What does leadership look like? And why is leadership even important?”
Leadership is influence. Leadership is a transfer of energy. Leadership instigates transformation. That's why consistently developing one's leadership capacity is important. From working with people for over two decades to become better leaders through my DisruptComfort.com platform, I've learned it’s easier for people to see the outward influence of a leader's impact rather than the inner growth that created it in the first place. Look at any professional athlete and you'll get my point...we can see their performance; and they have a stereotypical look. But there's a greater depth to that story of performance.
So then, “What does leadership look like on the inside?" Any personal development journey begins on the inside. Whatever outcomes we are getting on the outside are a reflection of who we are on the inside. The stories we tell ourselves and other's is a starting point...
STORIES OF PHYSICAL TRANSFORMATIONS
Transformations in body result in longevity, mobility, and fulfillment.
STORIES OF MIND TRANSFORMATIONS
Shifts of perspectives result in transformations of thought & belief
STORIES OF SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATIONS
Sharing the essence of our unique giftedness with others.
Disruption of Comfort, Perspectives, and Beliefs ...
I work to help align an individual's aspirations to an example...a personified one. We may learn, first, what leadership looks like on the inside from the principles identified in someone else's leadership story. From that understanding, we can find similarities in our own stories. Confidence builds as we see our true potential through the disruption of our comfort zone. And thus, the idea of The Aesthetics of Leadership webinar series was born...to share stories of leadership development and transformation that will influence a LEADERshift in our perceptions of self & our potential and to illustrate the aesthetics of leadership that are the fuel to light the fires of change inside. If you need support on your own transformational journey OR you'd like to be a guest on the show, don't hesitate to schedule a time to chat!
