At Leadercast, you will often hear us talking about the individual aspect of leadership. Our company is founded on the concept that leadership is not about a title – it is about a set of values and behaviors that inspire others; that put others first; that define “Beyond You” leadership. And it all starts with self-leadership. How can we possibly lead others if we are not continually developing our ability to lead ourselves?
Self-leadership is where my thoughts have landed in response to the fatal shootings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and Dallas law enforcement officials, Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson and Patrick Zamarripa.
The world is heartbroken. And the healing must start within each of us, as individuals. While many people are taking sides or pointing fingers, others who are addressing the fear and pain within individuals – and within is the only place that self-leadership can start.
