Some people are happy to go to work, earn money, come home and put the dinner on. Those people are lovely I’m sure, and they’re not my people.
My people are working on and passionate about something that’s far bigger than them – are you one of them?
In celebration of #bcorpmonth I’m dedicating my fourth blog in the positive leadership series to Leading a Movement. Check out the other three on Self-Leadership, Leading others, and Leading your Business.
If you’re leading or taking a leading role in a movement – or want to – are you leading positively? In a way that’s good for you, your people, and the planet?
Let's find out!
I'm sure, like me, there are elements of your leadership you have strengths in, others you are working on, and some you have blind spots and insecurities about. That's OK, you're human.
The question is, am I working on it?
And to do this, self-awareness is queen, so here's a teaser of just three questions each from My Positive Leadership Model - to help you celebrate your strengths, journey so far, and blind spots in the way you lead your movement.
