Lead Forward! The call to climb the mountain has never been greater.
If you listen, you will hear it. Our ability to climb it is REAL

Climb The Mountain-Lead Forward

Leadership is a trek around foggy corners, bluffs and terrain that challenges us beyond our wildest imagination; leading us where most people fear to tread. On good days, we move upward, forward and onward to new challenges, heights and accomplishments. On bad days, we may slip, fall, lose our balance and tumble backward.  On all days, leadership means learning, re-learning and failing forward with faith, hope, courage, integrity and humanity.  It means leading forward.

Leadership is not a tactic or a strategy; it is a commitment to climbing the mountain by honoring and empowering the best in our self and others.  It is a commitment to service above self rooted in love.  Love gives us the power to lead forward where others fear to tread. It is the fire that lights the indomitable power of our heart, mind and soul. Falling off the path, losing our grip and ability to negotiate difficult terrain and foggy corners occurs when we slip, slide or fall into fear based ego, hubris or arrogance.  It is corrected by self-awareness, humility and the conviction to embrace the love, the commitment to service above self that can take us forward.

True leadership is not about being nice, nor is it about being intimidating; it is about serving the greatest good, and empowering the best in oneself and others so that we can climb the mountain.  It means taking hard decisions and making the sacrifices necessary to negotiate foggy corners and challenging terrain with hope, faith, courage, integrity and humanity.  The imperative to build and sustain purpose driven leadership, to inspire purpose driven work, to build purpose driven communication and collaboration has never been greater.  Purpose equals profit on a multiplicity of levels, leadership is about tapping into our truest purpose and inspiring those we lead to do the same.

Leadership  is 3Q equation supported by courage that grows each time we align intelligence (IQ), humanity (EQ) and integrity (SQ); each time we use challenges, changes and strengths to  learn/re-learn, adapt and align best thoughts, best speech, best actions.   Leadership touches an emotional chord in others, as mirror neurons help us share our deepest emotions, our most heartfelt convictions.

Leadership means resetting the individual and organizational GPS,  by developing communities of purpose and a common language language rooted in the mutual objectives and shared values that create a bridge between cultural, personal and inter-generational differences.  It demands a relentless focus on climbing the mountain better and faster than ever before by using our minds, empowering our brains and aligning our hearts.  It means climbing the mountain by using  what is to create what can be; a better self, better teams, better organizations, better communities…a better world.

Lead Forward! The call to climb the mountain has never been greater.
If you listen you will hear it.

    Irene, you know that I always enjoy your Post Hon and I do Appreciate you inviting me here. However although I do agree with what you’ve had to say here about “Leadership” …..Here’s my take on the subject.

    1st A Real Leader is a Servant, and very humble in His or Her ways and Mannerism towards others, as well as through the Actions they must take, in order to Get things Done!!!

    2nd A Real Leader Must Be Able to “Think” Clearly for themselves, “Before” They Can Ever Effectively Make a Decisive Decision Concerning Others, or a particular task that needs to be taken care of.

    3rd A Real Leader knows that although your position may put you in the seat of “POWER”, The Best of us know that, Being “The Boss” means nothing without Discernment!! And you can get nothing done in this world really, without “Listening” to those that “Support” you then following through with real Actions on your part.

    So I speak from real experience when I say this; The One Who Leads?? Must Be Persuasive enough in order to get others to support whatever it is that you’re doing, while maintaining the Discipline necessary to get it Done!!

    Then that Leader Should Confidently Teach What You know, to those that support you, so that they may be Empowered enough, to do the same thing for someone else…. Just my thoughts. JTP.

    […] Lesson Five:  If you want to be a change-maker expect to be tested and challenged at every corner.  Every step of the journey will be challenged by those who see you as a threat to the status quo.  You will be unable to lead forward, to move forward without building a community of purpose, a constituency of those who share your values and objectives and will support your journey against the flow of what is.
