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

Transformational Leadership Dramas

~Hello Transformational Leader ~

Something I have noticed in one of the communities I serve in is that sometimes people commit to a role of leadership, and then later on, once the going gets tough, they say,
"I was in desire, and no longer have a purpose to be in this role".

What kind of example does this set for the rest of the team?
That we can commit ourselves to a task, role or project with the purpose of leadership, and then pull out because we are no longer connected with our purpose?

Is that not the journey of a leader, and especially the Transformational Leader?
Are we not called to notice what gets in our way on our leadership journey and resolve, transform and transcend our fears of inadequacy and limitation?

How can we suppose to lead others, when our own lack of commitment drama is present?
We pull out when the going gets tough, or we lose faith, or we face delay, disappointment or disaster. That is not what leadership is about. Firstly it is about commitment.

As a Transformational Leader, what have you given your commitment to recently, and not kept you word about? No matter how big or small, not keeping our word or promise undermines our integrity and our personal power.
How can we call others out on their integrity and personal power if we ourselves are lacking integrity?

Be ruthless with this, because if it is present in you, it runs a part of your life. It draws power away from you. By simply acknowledging it, you can reclaim that power. Your power. Your authentic, real personal power.

You and those around you are worth it.
So go for it!

Transformational Leadership: Integrity matters

Hi Transformational Leader

Do you what to develop the personal power to lead change in yourself and others?
Do you want what you do to be aligned with who you are?
Do you want to create unshakable trust with people in your life and business?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, here is the next one....

How is your integrity?
Now that may be a bold question to ask, yet it is a very powerful one, if your are willing to answer it.

Keeping your integrity makes a huge difference when it comes to generating personal power, aligning your purpose, and creating trust. As you probably well know, it takes a while for trust to be created, and sometimes a small event to make it breakdown.

Integrity may have different meanings for different people. One way of describing it could be - "Doing what you say you will". This could be as simple as making your bed, or taking your kid to the movies when you said you would. It could be going to the gym, or something as simple as making a followup call when you said you would. Being on time is another way of keeping your integrity.

You see, your mind is constantly watching you, to see if you will keep your word. If you do, it becomes your most powerful supporter. On the other hand, if you beep on breaking your word, your mind may not support you in creating the change you want to see in your life and business.

In Transformational Leadership, we have an important task ahead of us. We have a responsibility to lead the change, by first leading our own change. As Ghandi said "Be The Change You Want To See In The World".

To your ongoing transformation and leadership development

Richard
