Let’s say we all dreamt last night of becoming the best leader we could possibly be.
In that dream each of us had people we led and served to accomplish great things.
In that dream the people were not perfect and problems still existed.
There was one difference – you.
You looked different. You were part of what you currently are like, but you also had other abilities. In fact, you were the best leader you could possibly be.
Now, what would you look like? How would you be different if you could dream about you being the best leader possible?
In my dream I see myself quite differently and yet still in my same skin.
No, I don’t envision actual superpowers unless you call grace and better listening skills superpowers.
I actually saw in me the ability to lead others at more of a heart level than I do. I get so focused on the future and the strategy that I often disconnect with everyday issues in others.
I also saw myself thinking of myself far less than I currently do. My dream-like leadership style was more focused on unleashing the strengths inside of others for their benefit and the benefit of the company.
It is important to note that my dream does not have me looking like someone else, but simply modifying my leadership skills to become more effective. I like who I am and believe that I can inspire, equip and lead our business, but it is ok to dream. In this dream I become even more intentional, while remaining flexible. I stay inspirational, but give practical clarity. My dream has me giving myself away and seeing others mimic that in me for those they lead.
Again, what does your dream look like? What type of leader to you dream of becoming?Related posts:
