Lead Ahead: Week of January 6, 2014

Happy New Year, Dallas Leaders! In the days and months ahead, we have one great and wonderful thing. We have time to make a change, make a difference, and make an impact. Leading to do one or more of these three things is our challenge and opportunity. Many exciting and energizing activities are happening in Dallas, and we need to jump in and lead.

To begin the new year, highlighted below are some great insights from the Authentic Leadership Dallas and Lead Change communities.

Keys to Success in Business and Your Personal Success by Krista Kotrla. Key quote: “My personal success story continues to unfold but here’s what I realized. Accepting default labels from life’s challenges can easily limit your aim… if you allow it.”

When Do You Know You Are a Leader? by Tal Shnall. Key quote: “Here is a simple way to think about it – It’s moving from ME to WE! You’re no longer constantly thinking, ‘How can I be number one?’ but ‘How can I help my people be the best they can be?’ it’s all about them.”

4 Senses of Character-based Leadership by Mike Henry. Key quote: “To be a character-based leader, you only need four things I’d call senses. Any one of these senses is proof that anyone can be a character-based leader. If you have two or three, you may even have some influence in your homeowners association or in your workplace. But to be a great character-based leader, you’ll need all four.”

Millennial Leaders: Momentum by Jon Mertz. Key quote: “As Boomers and Gen Xers, we need to reach across every generation to learn and share, and Millennial leaders have a similar responsibility. When we remove the barriers, we will cross the leadership gap and really create a new, better story line.”

Lead well in the week ahead and, most importantly, lead well in the year ahead!
