Being Brave

Few care enough to fight

Just a moment in time. A different angle.

While not difficult to get to, it is definitely off the beaten path.

Few care enough to fight.

Few know the joy and exhilaration (and the risk, doubt, and fear) from fighting for something you are passionate about.

Parenting is the ultimate leadership test

Talaboman song
Screen shot to help me remember this song. There’s an Apple Music radio station called “Chill” and all the songs are this genre. Great thinking and writing music. PS. If you click the song link, don’t watch the video – the video is irrelevant and actually distracts from the music.

 

Apparently, not many parents let their children follow their truth….

So here’s an email excerpt from a teacher, in the past 48 hours:

 

I just wanted to say that that is truly a blessing and warms my heart. I love when I hear/see parents who support their kids no matter who they love, what they choose to major in, what they want to be when they’re older, their hobbies, how they dress, etc. Thank you for being the type of parent who shows this unconditional love. Your child expressed that it is such a relief for him to not have to deal with these issues as he knows many others do.

 

Excerpt from my reply:

 

As a writer, speaker, executive coach and business advisor (said with humility), it’s my job to pay attention – to perceive what words never say, and look for clues that can lead to new and different actions that then lead to breakthroughs – and create remarkable (and formally impossible) changes that make our world a better place.

 

Leaders and parents make stereotypical mistakes – not developing their direct reports (children).

Listen, tell stories, ask questions, encourage, support, provide positive and critical feedback and all of this needs to be done in a loving fashion.

No one cares how much you know if they think you don’t care.

As much as we’d like other’s to take an interest and care

How To Influence People seminar in Calgary
A random walk downstairs (from the main conference center) led to the discovery of this meeting room and message

 

We must be the initiator of our own professional development.

As much as we’d like other’s to take an interest and care for our professional well being, the odds are very high that everyone else is just as busy as us.

And often (daily?) we (all of us?) are just trying to survive the day.
