Happy Monday, Friends!
Today we are back to talking about what it means to be a great leader. This is going to sound kind of weird, but today’s episode was inspired by a whistle . Yep, that’s right…a whistle…you know, the kind your gym teacher or sports coach wore around their neck as they had you running killers up and down the court at practice… I am sure you are thinking, what the heck does that have to do with a podcast about leadership?!
I was thinking about a leadership academy that I am going to be co-facilitating, and one of the icebreaker activities requires me to bring an object that represents my leadership or my idea of effective leadership. I had a few thoughts but hadn’t really settled on anything. Well, this morning I was going through our multipurpose drawer…aka junk drawer…and I saw a whistle on a lanyard. I knew immediately that would be the object I chose to bring to our first session of the leadership academy, and this is why.
When I saw that whistle, I thought of a sports coach. I then started to think about how much a great coach on the sports field has in common with an effective leader in the workplace. The goal and the role of the coach should be much the same as that of a team leader in the workplace. Tune in as we dive a little deeper into the 10 Qualities of a great sports coach (and a great leader).
I hope this episode blesses you and that you will continue to join me on this journey toward balance, peace, and freedom to live the abundant life you were called to.
