SoMe: What do YOU bring to the party?
If you have been following along, one of my favorite hours of the week is the #leadfromwithin chat on Twitter Tuesday night at 8pm. Yes, that a plug for you to attend. These are notes from the July 12, 2011 session.
This is a community engaged in a rapid discussion about what it means to lead from within, meaning to lead from your heart as well as your head. I am fairly new to the community, but they are easy to fall in step with; and, you can get the transcipt of the discussion. It is thought-provoking and enlightening. It moves so quickly that I think everyone has to shoot from the hip, and therefore from the heart.
The people involved all seem to know their stuff, and aren't afraid to disagree. We all learn from the interaction, because we are not all at the same level of development in all of our leadership a life skills. And, we all have something to learn from those who "know" more than we do, as well as those we perceive as "knowing" much less.
So, I am passing along the questions to you. My suggestion is that you take each question by itself, and meditate on it for 5 minutes or so, and write out an answer.
Q1 When great leaders walk in the room, what comes with them?
Q2: How do you discover what qualities people bring with them?
Q3: How can you become more aware of what you bring along with you?
Q4 What are you choosing to bring more often?
Q5: What has helped you develop those qualities?
Q6: What is more possible because you’re in the room?
Q7: How can you help others see that they bring?
Q8: What conversations happen more often when you are in the room?
Q9 What role does personality (eg Myers Briggs) play in motivating what people bring? (optional)
Q10 If you #leadfrowithin what qualities do you bring when you walk into a room?
What are YOU bringing to the party?
