LL4L: Thought For The Week

Remember this week… Leadership is neither found nor proven by how one leads those who agree with them. Leadership only begins to show up when met by opposition, challenge and adversity.
The Way Things Are To Be Seen

The Way Things Are To Be Seen

George Carlin famously said: “Have you ever noticed when someone is driving faster than you they’re an idiot, but when they drive slower than you they’re a moron?!” Oh, how easy it is to judge those that don’t do things just right, in...

Leading Those Who Disagree

When we talk about leading people who are against you, it’s important to remember there’s always a reason there. When someone resists your leadership, they’re saying, “I can’t tell my story the way you’re leading.” We assume...
Where Leadership Begins

Where Leadership Begins

“Alright, now–everyone up, and move to the opposite side of the room,” I said a few minutes into a keynote address. “If you’re on the right, go left, if you’re on the left, go right…if you’re in the front, move the the back, and if you’re in the back, move...

Your Hot Water Self vs. Your Everyday Self

Eleanor Roosevelt famously said, “Women are like teabags. You don’t get their full flavor until you put them in hot water.”  The same could be said for men, I suppose–but why? Why is it that when put in hot water, we rise up to do extraordinary things, things we...

I Am Ready To Fly (Are You?)

And here it dawns in a few short hours. The New Year.      A New Beginning. In a relative matter of moments, it will be that magical spark of endless possibility. Midnight. But not just any midnight. A midnight that rolls around but once in 365 nights. A midnight that...

The Other Side of the Light
