The Changing Face of Leaders

I’m reading Tribes by Seth Godin, a fantastic book about what it means to be a leader today – both in an organization and in your own business. There’s so much good advice and he provides several concepts that really require you to examine how you currently approach your work.

There's no doubt that technology has drastically challenged and changed the status quo, and those who still fight against the new way business, marketing, and careers are developed stand to lose.  The book is filled with stories and insights on how to create the type of organization that thrives in this new global world where information is readily accessible. He shares how people have done it right - and how some have tried and missed the boat.

One of my favorite quotes that is in this book is around using Tribes and the accompany leadership skills to design the life – and the lifestyle – you want. He says, “You don’t have enough time to be unhappy and mediocre. It’s not just pointless, it’s painful. Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.”

This quote embodies my coaching platform of Get RADICAL – which is to define success for yourself and then become bold and courageous enough to go after it. Coaching is one of the ways I work with individuals to help them deepen the learning about who they are and what they want, and then create an action plan that allows them to pursue their goals.
