The number one thing you can give anyone is confidence! Stepping into leadership means going on a self-exploration journey to discover your purpose, passions, values, vision, and essence of your being. Understanding yourself will give you the confidence to boldly walk in your calling and change the world!
You’re no stranger to the catch-22 of needing experience to get the job, but needing the job to get experience. Why wait for someone else to grant authority or give you permission to gain the experiences and skills you desire? It’s time to take control over your future and start creating your own unique opportunities to position yourself as an expert!
It may sound a bit strange, but more importantly than learning to lead, is learning to follow. From incoming freshman to university president or intern to CEO, learning to be actively engaged and possess the ability to think critically are skills for us all. Even with the many leadership hats, we may wear, being an exemplary follower is an invaluable trait that will propel you and your team forward.
Your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room. So, what do you stand for? What are your values, abilities, and actions? Your brand is created by what others associate and attribute to you. The great thing about your brand is you control the story by knowing how you want to show up in the world and what you want to show up for.
Have you ever heard a speech, seen a presentation, or read something that made you say, “Wow! That was AMAZING?” There is an actual formula for communication and the ways in which we present ourselves to the world. Gaining these skills will allow you to rise through the ranks of your academic and career endeavors.
The most significant learning happens when you experience something first-hand. We acquire knowledge, attain skills, and develop values through the process of experiencing, reflecting, thinking, and acting upon what we’ve experienced. Whatever your industry, these experiences can transform your organization by giving you the opportunity for creative innovation, learning from mistakes, adaptive and agile team building, and conflict resolution.
We live in a globally connected world. The use of digital technological platforms for knowledge acquisition and skills attainment from anywhere in the world has completely shifted the ways in which we work and learn. With access to this amazing resource, we can work with people all around the globe to truly change the world for the better. Learning how to effectively utilize this resource will give you the tools to be the change you want to see
Preparing for the future is fun and exciting with endless possibilities, but can also be a frightening thought of confusion about where to begin. By creating a vision, developing goals, setting priorities, and focusing energy and resources this process tells your story. With tangible steps, you’ll be sent on a journey to fulfill your purpose.
We’ve all read the articles debating which time management system or to-do list will increase our productivity and get us caught up on our endless list of daunting tasks. But, the reality of our never-ending access to continuous streams of information makes it impossible to keep up with the ever-changing state of our workloads. The solution then becomes a choice on what to ignore and a laser focus on the top most significant areas of our lives that will yield the greatest return.
