No really

Leadership and parenting are synonymous

“What, do you think money grows on trees?” You probably heard that statement at least once from your parents.

 

Leadership and parenting are synonymous.

You must be a leader as a parent.

And while you aren’t a parent as a business leader, hardly a day goes by that you don’t feel like you’re using parenting skills on your adult workers.

If Disney Ran Your Life

How Business Advising and Foster Parenting are similar

Disney Creativity Keynote Speakers
Worth a second, closer, look.

 

How Business Advising and Foster Parenting are similar.

Your love and affection for both are deep and real.

You work like everything matters.

And yet.

And yet there’s a reality that’s hard to shake off.

It is someone else’s company.

It is someone else’s child.

You care so much, and yet you must surrender to the reality that you do not have final say on any outcomes.

PS. Fostering and adopting are distinctly different. You can adopt a child you’ve been fostering, but the assumption in this example is that that never happens.

Roots and wings.

Technology shouldn’t be scary.

Not planning to keep up with it should be though.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Intentionally waited until bedtime to be a leader

High School freshman studying
He spent the entire weekend preparing for finals week.

 

Intentionally waited until bedtime to tell him, “Your work ethic and focus impressed me this weekend.”

Wanted him to take that feedback to bed with him to ponder his behavior and hopefully begin to understand that there are times when the characteristics he demonstrated this weekend will serve him as an adult.
