We all have the capacity to inspire and empower others. But we must first be willing to devote ourselves to our personal growth and development as leaders.
Do you have a growth mindset?
Over the past years, people have developed a deep distrust of leaders. It is increasingly evident that we need new kinds of leaders in the twenty-first century. Leaders who would demonstrate a passion for their purpose, practice their values consistently, and lead with their hearts as well as their heads. Leaders who will establish long-term, meaningful relationships and have the self-discipline to get results. Leadership is communal, holistic and accretive. A fancy title doesn’t put you above others — it puts you in their service.
I participated at the 48th Liberty University Commencement.
Although I earned my Ph.D. quite a while back, it feels good to be invited back. Such an honor. Thank you, Liberty University.
I hope that women and girls would continuously accomplish those things they were told were meant for only certain well-seasoned men.
With my online courses, you can increase your confidence in personal development, self-efficacy, business skills, social situations or get mentored directly from the comfort of your home or office.
The need for leadership development has never been more urgent. The human brain is composed of approximately 86 billion neurons. Early researchers believed that neurogenesis, or the creation of new neurons, stopped shortly after birth. Today, it’s understood that the brain possesses the remarkable capacity to reorganize pathways, create new connections, and, in some cases, even create new neurons—a concept called neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity. Neurologically the brain is infinitely more plastic, and people have the capacity to change. People need leaders as role models, who embody powerful messages that can help them do better. Companies of all sorts realize that to survive in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment, they need leadership skills and organizational capabilities different from those that helped them succeed in the past. Therefore, it is important that people are equipped with the relevant technical, relational, and communication skills needed to spur organizational goals. When leaders go first, it is more relatable to hold people accountable to their standards of excellence.
