Community Friday: Habits of Successful Leaders that Improve the World
Most of us are not born seeing ourselves as the next leader. In many cases, the stronger leaders keep to themselves as they are deep in thought. They are the introverts who possess forward thinking. Most of the population does not understand the pattern, and so these thought leaders remain in the background. This remains true until ~ times change and the need is finally recognized.
The larger than life leaders work in the background to improve the lives of others
The second part of the thought leader story is to fulfill a need of society. Work is quietly done in the background with the right collaborative team in place, able to produce the recognized need. The team enjoys the spotlight more so than the person who created the idea. More importantly is the fact that so many lives are improved by the cooperative effort.
This week, we spoke of personalizing all communication. My outcome of having done this produced many wonderful results. But key is the fact that I met leaders with very large vision. Their ideas were incredible and we chose to support one another through the years. Today, I have exciting stories to share with you.
Valeri Bocage has previously shared her insights. She always remained true to her vision of improving the lives of people worldwide. Membership in her PWIConnections organization requires that a project be in place that serves humanity. We previously read about Justina Page helping burn victims and of Najjiyya Arnold working with children to improve literacy. The organization is finalizing plans for a Global Conference in San Francisco – stay tuned!
Today, a long-time friend and admired entrepreneur, Paula Fellingham, invited me to join her newly formed group “Global Peace Initiative”. Upon clicking “yes”, I realized she is also working with the 2nd World Parliament on Spirituality.
On a much smaller scale, yesterday, I received word that many of my collaborators and I were designated as The Top 24 Sales Leaders to follow on Twitter. Global peace and spirituality makes this seem trivial. However, when you consider that Twitter is used by staggering numbers – it’s a wonderful method to get the thoughts you want known out into the world. Additionally, Twitter is the most time-efficient way to secure the information you need. See if you are following the leaders featured on the list.
