It’s been a busy but exciting week. About four months ago I volunteered to do a 4-week [12 hours] session on self-leadership. Mastering self-leadership is the foundation of true leadership. According to Plato – “The first and best victory is to conquer self…”
My volunteer assignment is to a group of people who have experienced the rougher edges of society; through choice, and through circumstances where choice itself was very limited. Not my typical class.
I had the privilege to meet my group for the first time last Tuesday night. It was a rich and engaging time of interaction. During the entire evening I felt that I was not instructing[content] but planting seeds of hope and transformation; planting acorns that someday would grow into oak trees.
I was reminded of the quote on my colleague’s office door: “Don’t strive to make a living, strive to make a difference.”
I am looking forward to next Tuesday evening!
