In my new podcast interview with Alaska Tracy I shared my thoughts about leadership tools and strategies. I spoke about:
MY DEFINITION OF SUCCESS
Success is identifying what we are fascinated with and then applying our gifts and strengths to make it happen. I believe that if we work hard at something and enjoy the process that is success. I don’t believe in labels or positions or titles. Success can be about growing in a career or a personal feat or helping someone reach their north star. The key is taking action and feeling empowered to propel ourselves in a particular direction.
STRUGGLES AND CHALLENGES
I did of course face some challenges along the way. Often our careers and personal lives take many detours. Or things just change.
HOPE FOR THE LISTENERS
Each of us has a different journey and no one journey is better than the other. The key is to find out what excites us and what we each feel is fulfilling. Then we each owe it to ourselves to work hard to make it happen. Of course we all need a little help and asking for that help is essential to our success.
MENTORS ARE SO IMPORTANT TO LEADERS
Find a magical mentor who you can trust and feel comfortable enough to be open with. The mentors I met along the way believed in my abilities and helped me see my potential that I was unable to see myself.
I would love to hear your thoughts about the podcast and any additions about leadership that you would like to add.
