What Do You Make Ok?

A leader who does not excel for a brief period of time, but impresses over decade can be a rare find. What distinguishes this leader is their passion, their attention to every detail. One of the hallmarks of great leaders is how obsessed they are by their pursuits and their willingness to push every distraction to one side and concentrate on what matters to them. We can all lead if we want to. It is not necessary about roles or position, it can be about presencing – how we show up and why we show up. It takes courage to be a leader!

What if we believed in the humanness of each person? What if we applied the concept of Ubuntu – understanding that each of us is connected to all others – that if others aren’t able to thrive, we aren’t either?

Accepting a lifetime achievement at the 2017 Global Achievement Meryl Streep reminds us, ‘ The instinct to humiliate, when it’s modelled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everyone’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing”.

  1. Do you have a culture that encourages people to take the lead and transform the future?
  2. Are you confident where you are standing – able to empower others to be themselves?
  3. Can you find the right confidence to be authentic, real and vulnerable?
  4. What you making ok?
  5. What is the space we are creating together?

We can leave someone else with something to remember, with something to be proud of.   What is it we can say, do, feel and be and at the same time make other feel ok? This special person meets you and leaves feeling ‘this is someone who knows what it is like to be me’.
