Leadership Magic – my Theme for 2018

It’s a topsy-turvy, sometimes High, sometimes low world right now, right?

The optimism and clarity I felt on New Year’s Day and even the 2nd were exhilarating and I was excited to return to “work” from my short sabbatical.

Yet, today, after waking early to an inspiration that I recorded before falling back to sleep, the rest of the day has taken me in circles. Back into spirals of grief, forward into the thrills of new meetings and opportunities on the horizon, then deep into self-critical stuff. Probably all before I finished my 2nd cup of coffee!

Well, I’m back into the swing again here, after honoring my feelings and listening to intuition…and ready to get into it!

So, what is Leadership Magic?

It’s the inner glow you have when you are:

  • Self-Empowered
  • Self-Authoring
  • Self-Loving
  • Self-Valuing
  • Self-Responsible and
  • Self-Aware

We’ll be playing with these areas and defining the concepts as we move throughout the first quarter of 2018.

SHINE is still my signature though, as it’s the foundation for true Leadership Magic.

I’m just playing deeper with the concepts of the intrinsic light that we have and so often dim or turn off due to fear, failure, or to “fit in”.

So, let’s get started, shall we?

Leadership Magic begins with Power. And to turn on your Power, it’s essential to have a Vision. To be Open to Possibilities. To TRUST. And to be Present, showing up with a radiant Presence.

Lots of emphases here as we can’t get where we want to go without these basics.

So, here’s my take on each of them. Enjoy!
