LEAD Through Crisis
We cannot manage our way out of a crisis, we have to lead it!
- John Maxwell
LEADERS OF TOMORROW
Like a river that brings life, a leader brings life to others
Leadership begins with me...
...and flows to others
How am I impacting the lives of others around me?
Do I have someone I can connect with?
Is there someone who needs to be connected?
No man (person) is an island
John Donne (1572-1631)
We are social beings
We were made for connection
The inward connection is about connecting to our inner self. It energises you and fuels your desire to do the things you do. It is personal. This connection is so deep that no one else knows except you. No one can take it away from you except you.
The outward connection is the most natural connection beyond ourselves. It enables meaningful interactions and sharing of experiences with another human being. It is more dynamic and takes into consideration multiple variables.
The upward connection is to a “higher being”. May not be so recognisable to our natural eyes, but we acknowledge there is a “higher being” out there. Whether we choose to acknowledge that being, He is still there. Reminds us we are after all, only human.
How do you feel when you connect inwards?
What did you discover about yourself that you didn't know?
How are you connecting outwardly with your family / colleagues / community?
How are you connecting upwards? How does that influence my daily living?
