Oprah on Leadership

I’m really excited to share this video with you today. Oprah is an impressive individual and a personal inspiration to me. She has accomplished so much and overcome many challenges. As her first-hand testimony will show – a lot of hard work goes a long way.

The lesson that most struck me in this video was the importance of her own inner journey to her outward success. Oprah talks a lot about her self reflection. The ‘how’ and the ‘why’ questions behind what we do in work. This stood out to me, as often we think about what we want at work. What we want to be paid. What company we want to work in. What promotion we want next. Oprah talks a lot about mission, giving and contribution through our work. A great lens to look at leadership.

This is an extended video at over an hour long. It’s well worth it.

Let me know what your take aways were.

Enjoy!
