Who are you?

Walking through the door, all of the eyes looked at me. “Who are you?”

Those three words are powerful! Was I ready to answer this question?

Can you answer that question? You have a name and a title, but what does this tell others? Is there more to define you?

Many books are written regarding leadership. I know many of the authors of these books and so enjoy reading them. It is so critical to know who you are before you stand before a group to lead. There are no right or wrong answers to your style of leadership.

The Ant and the Elephant written by Vince Poscente, is a parable. I love it because of the action plan you can develop to clarify and continue to work on your leadership.

Leadership is more than the title you hold. It is reflected in your words and actions. What are your values, beliefs, and vision? Leaders reflect at the end of the day how their reflection impacted others through it!

My favorite place for inspiration is Simple Truths! Enjoy one of their videos below. I found an additional one as well! Refilling your cup with inspiration is good for your heart and mind!
