Centred Leadership

This is a great video on  how remarkable women lead from Joanna Barsh. I found this clip and the whole body of work very inspiring. I believe leadership happens at all levels- this video is relevant to you wherever you are in your career.

I came across this video through the work of Sheryl Sandberg the founder of the lean in movement. I’ve talked lot about lean in,  in previous posts and, have run a lean in circle myself. I’m an advocate.

Once you have a look at this overview video, I highly recommend that you take the time to look at the whole series  – there are 7 videos: http://leanin.org/education/.

If you’re not already joined up to a circle this might be a great time to join.

Enjoy!

Lead yourself first

I’m excited to be sharing this video  as it helps me approach leadership from a slightly different, but, helpful angle.

In this post, Kim Lyons takes us through her journey as a personal trainer, including a stint on the Biggest Looser USA. This story is full of great insight into the importance of #leading yourself first.

This video also reminds me of my own leadership journey, it didn’t start with leading others, it started with leading myself.

The lessons I took from the video are relevant to many areas of your life not just health. The take homes that stuck out for me are:

• Do stuff that energizes you
• Take care of yourself
• Learn to keep yourself motivated when it gets tough
• Find your voice and speak up
• Take action towards your goals, however small.

Let me know what you think in the comments box below.
