How You Lead Matters
September 12, 2017
One of the lines I say quite often when introducing myself at workshops these days is, "all of my worlds now seemlessly overlap." All that to say that the lessons I have learned from and through sport, the lessons I have learned from and through life and the lessons I have learned from and through yoga/life coaching are all the same. There may be some slight language differences or how/what folks might choose to emphasize, but to me, it's all life. Coaching is coaching is coaching...whether you are coaching sports or life. At the root of it all is knowing yourself. Who are you? What makes you happy? What do you value? What are your strengths and weaknesses. Who are you as man or woman, sister or brother, partner or colleague? What makes you tick? What do you desire to do and how can you get there? What makes it challenging? What are the tools and skills necessary to get there? Am I even aware of these challenges...or these desires? "For with awareness, comes choice" Eckhert Tolle. This is the work that we do. It helps ALL of us grow, as people. In the classroom, the boardroom, the living room, the sports fields. Leadership is living life fully. Yep, that's what we do. Pretty amazing, right?
