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.
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.
