Leadership is like a story...
Leadership does not have to be complex. Instead you can think of leadership like a story where you are the main character.
Well-written main characters have a dream or goal.
In all reality, you are the main character in the most important story currently being written. As you work toward a dream or goal, you will encounter obstacles. If you were a character, in a well constructed picture book, you'd probably encounter three obstacles. Then you'd come to a turning point and reach a satisfying ending. Since you are a human, not a character, the satisfying ending will last for a blink of an eye. You can't help yourself, you will seek new goals and have new unexpected obstacles.
Why do I promote picture books and other well crafted writing?
Well written picture books are based on universal themes from childhood. We never fully out grow the themes such as adjusting to a new person or a new situation, aspiring to be more, overcoming embarrassment, applying a new skill, or being told to do something that seems boring or difficult. When I work with leaders who desire to understand their purpose, I point them back to themes from childhood. Together we explore which themes resonate and what dreams are still left to be pursued?
