Discover Your Inner Leader: Reflections to Inspire and Motivate

January 26, 2015
Book Cover 1) Do you hesitate to make decisions and second guess the ones you do make?

2) Do you question your ability to motivate others and to create a team climate?

3) Do you worry that others have more talent than you?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, or even seemed unsure, then my newest e-book is for you: Discover Your Inner Leader: Reflections to Inspire and Motivate

Each of us may put on a brave face at work, but we’re all human beings, each with our unique gifts and warts. To wonder if we have the right stuff to become a leader is perfectly normal and is actually an important part of our personal learning journey.

Learning is an iterative process. We learn in spurts, not at a steady pace. Some days we’re on; other days we’re off. After all we’re people, who on a daily basis face a variety of events: illness, loss of a family member or employment, marriage, trip to a foreign country, college graduation, and the list goes on.

As a consequence, each of us needs to figure out how to interact with the external world while simultaneously trying to manage our personal issues. For example, this could be forming a family while taking on new responsibilities at work.

In my new e-book, I share my own fall-on-the-face experiences as a new manager many years ago. But I was lucky and had a great team who gave me immediate feedback that what I was doing was definitely not cool. Being a new manager is indeed a scary experience.

However, this e-book’s not about me but about YOU: how I can help facilitate YOUR journey to discovery, enlightenment and practice as an effective leader.

To do this, I’ve reached into my 420-plus leadership posts from my website-blog Changing Winds to share 10 popular posts on the theme of inner leadership. Along the way, I’ve included three short leadership profiles. Whether it’s Ryan who as a young boy from rural Ontario helped dig wells in Africa, or Ray Anderson who up to his recent death was seen as the planet’s greenest CEO or the story of the sticky paws, these profiles are intended to inspire and motivate you. As you’re reading, enjoy the photos I’ve included to help spark your reflection.

In the end, it’s up to each of us whether we empower ourselves to embark on the learning journey to find our inner leader. It’s a journey that’s exciting and at times stressful. However, the rewards as you proceed through this process reveal themselves every day.

There’s nothing more powerful you can do to encourage others in their quest for personal mastery than to be serious in your own quest.
