A reminder of the challenge: write the name of someone you look up to as a leader, and know enough about to list admirable traits. Then search for those traints in yourself and those around you.
So what was the point, Karl?
It was for you to not only find a role model, but to humanize this person you might have on a pedestal. This challenge was to help each of you see that the traits of the person you elevated to unreachable in people around you. Maybe you didn’t find the traits of your core figure and role model. If that’s the case I would encourage you to look harder. I have never found this to fail. You’re not looking for their twin, just their traits.
In the next three weeks we will be doing almost a mini workshop of sorts, a vision workshop. Who do you want to become as a leader? If you have been keeping up with the challenges since January, you’re in a fundamental place of improvement. If you’re not. I would invite you to join now. The leader you want to become has to exist mentally before it can exist physically. Find that role model – that core leader you want to emulate. Establish your vision. Now let’s get to work.
I recently received some feedback on the weekly challenges.
Because of this I want to encourage each of you to take these challenges and let me know how they are working for you. Each of you now know the vital nature of feedback, so please don’t hesitate to push back on these posts. What’s working? What’s not working for you?
I’d love to hear from you! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
