Transformational Leadership Courage

My biggest mistakes have been made while trying to prove that I was different than what I actually am.

My most satisfying experiences have been those moments when I was real - I said what I meant, I meant what I said, and my behavior and my feelings all matched exactly. Many of those experiences were laced with anxiety, because I was laying everything on the line.

Others were borne of my willingness to accept the consequences either way, because I just couldn't stand being bound by my fear anymore...and the scariest experiences involved those who matter the most to me.

If you ever find your life on the dull side, tell someone how much you love them ...
Really HOW MUCH you love them.

Or tell them something you've been hiding from them.

Or both.

That'll do it.

Transforming Leadership Power Story - Beyond Rangoon

Dear Leaders

When someone risks their own life for the lives of others, it sends a powerful message of faith in what is possible. There is a difference between force and power.

A transformational leader may face some threatening situations, many not as challenging as the one depicted in this movie clip.

It comes from a movie called Beyond Rangoon, and will inspire courage in your heart.




What will you risk on your Transformational Leadership Journey?

Your life may not be at stake, but your ego certainly might be...


To your ongoing leadership development and growth

Richard
