The number one role of leadership

For me the number one role of leadership is to unleash and enhance your own and other people's gifts.

I have recently put together a new presentation that looks at this from many different angles in order to help you to be the best version of you in your own best way. 

You can learn more about this presentation here or download the details here.
My friends and colleagues Jim Cathcart and Glenn Capelli would say Nurture Your Nature (Jim) and Quiddity (Glenn - see my previous post here).

Stephen Covey said Voice and the Japanese say Ikigai. One of my all time favourite presenters Sir Ken Robinson would say element. The great dancer Martha Graham would have said a vitality, a life force, a quickening.

In the book that has greatly influenced my life, Hero of a Thousand Faces, author Joseph Campbell said Follow Your Bliss.

And in a sentence that sends shivers up my spine every time I say it Steven Farber says Do what you love in the service of people who love what you do.

I love all of these wonderful insights into being the best version of ourselves, that one-of-a-kind human being that each of us is.

In my work since 1991 I’ve used Gift because that was how I learned this proven principle from it’s originator and my best friend Terry Jenner (TJ). Learn more about the origins in this short video and this tribute post to TJ.

I sometimes use Music to reference Gfits because it’s deeply personal too as I explore in the short video below.

And helping other people to do the same is the number one role of leadership.

In this presentation I explore tailor-made ways to do this and therefore co-create a workplace where people feel valued, live values and deliver value.

Key messages

A deep understanding that the above is a way of being and that the greatest sustainable success is always about who before do.

This way of being leads to people feeling valued which paves the way for living values and delivering value in ways that are very difficult to emulate, which gives your business competitive advantage.

There is no greater calling than to become a Leadership Valueologist in your own best way, because doing so leads to better business results at less personal cost: Leadership Valueologist (verb) - person fully committed to the art, life-long learning, unlearning and relearning, and daily practice of fully appreciating and getting the best out of themselves and other people, and ensuring people feel valued, live values and deliver value.

Who will you become? What will you do next?

Be remarkable.
