I recently returned from a week in Rarotonga where I had the chance to slow down and enjoy being. I layed in the hammock under the palm tree, gazing out on the warm blue ocean, and enjoyed feeling the breeze gently caress my skin. I also took the opportunity to practice mindfulness or 'the art of presence' away from my busy life back in Auckland.
When you hear the word 'play' used in the context of 'leadership', what comes to mind? Do you have a positive, negative, or mixed response?
How confident do you feel when you stand up to speak?
How connected do you feel to yourself and to your audience?
If you're like most people, you are a bit glossophobic (afraid of public speaking).
Have you ever held in your feelings during a meeting, not wanting to offend by speaking your mind? Then, afterwards, you think of all the things you SHOULD have said?
Would you like to feel more connected in your relationships?
How happy are you in general with your friendships as well as professional relationships?
Are you on track with living your passionate purpose?
Are you a leader in that you inspire those around you?
Are you moving in a clear direction?
Would you like to take more intentional action in all you do?
