Brown, founder of Vision Performance Leadership, that’s where it all begins. Jeannine is a trained leadership coach and experienced speaker with expertise in strategic vision, performance development and leadership. “The first understanding of vision is that it is future and forward-looking,” says Jeannine in one of her most popular Leadercast Now videos. “It is seeing now the possibilities of the future.”

For me, Thanksgiving planning always begins with “The List:” who do I hope to have at our table this year? Naturally, my list includes family, friends and occasionally someone I adopt who doesn’t have anywhere else to go. But there’s more to having a seat at our table than passing the potatoes. Our Thanksgiving meal is an hours-long extravaganza of laughing, talking, sharing, and supporting. If you’re invited, you’re encouraged to speak up, speak out and actively participate in life together.

Like a lot of people, Elizabeth Cassidy has been moved to tears this year by the violence that occurs on a seemingly daily basis. “I started to make a list of all the places deeply affected by hate and I realized that it is all over the world,” says Elizabeth. “This was not the world I wanted to live in.” Elizabeth is a long-time writer, artist and perennial peacemaker. So she did what many artists do – she channeled her emotions into her work and imagined how she might make a difference from her little corner of the world in New York. She started small, literally. With a Peaceful Revolution all around little love letters.

The buzz about Alexander Hamilton recently reignited following the debut of PBS’ new documentary titled, Hamilton’s America, which briefly chronicles the life of the founding father through a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary production, Hamilton: An American Musical. The Broadway hit has catapulted its principle actors and creators into Broadway royalty and earned them a variety of awards. But perhaps the person who has garnered the brightest spotlight is Alexander Hamilton himself. After watching the documentary on PBS recently, I – like many people – couldn’t help but draw parallels from Hamilton’s era to today’s society. Specifically, I noticed three core leadership lessons I gleaned from learning more about the life of Alexander Hamilton. Feel free to fire up Spotify and listen to the Hamilton soundtrack as you read.

Imagine…you are eager to start a family with your husband, you are elated to find out that you’re having a baby, you go in for your first obstetrician appointment, and during the routine check-up, your doctor feels a lump in your breast. That’s what happened to Jodi Browell, who was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer when she was pregnant with her first child. “My mom is a two-time breast cancer survivor,” says Jodi, “and at first, I felt doomed to a cancer diagnosis. I decided not to panic; I knew then that I was going to be strong and do whatever I needed to [fight this].” It takes bravery, teamwork and a dedication to helping those beyond you to fight cancer. Here are three stories from women in the Leadercast community who are fighting and winning with perseverance and grace.

In my previous life as a magazine editor, I had the privilege to observe and interview a number of influential leaders: former presidents, television and movie stars, business gurus, and creative geniuses. And while it was always an honor to be in the room with them, if I’m being honest, a few of them haven’t lived up to my expectations. We expect all leaders, especially those in the spotlight, to be ethical, kind, engaging, and available to those they lead. So it’s a let-down when someone you’ve looked up to or seen lead from afar ends up being completely disingenuous, disengaged, or even downright rude to others. What becomes especially problematic is when that person is someone on your own leadership team. And that reason alone was enough for me to fear working for a company I'd admired for years - what if it didn't live up to everything I thought it would be?

At Leadercast, we exist to help people become leaders worth following. Whether at our live events or through our digital platform, our purpose is to help you become the kind of values-based leader that those around you trust and are eager to follow. Why are we so passionate about this mission? Our world is facing serious challenges today. Many of these challenges boil down to a common denominator: a vacuum in leadership. And not just a void in the leadership of others, but also in self-leadership – where it all begins. We seek to help fill that vacuum by sharing the wisdom, insights and applications we learn from leaders worth following…those who lead with integrity, discipline, excellence, clarity, authenticity…who put people first and build through collaboration, not conflict. We believe that as each of us strives to emulate these best practices from leaders worth following, we can become leaders worth following ourselves.
