When character and courage come together.


Being a leader or a manager of people (and much has been discussed about the difference) has never been about simply the role.

We all have had conversations about what we need to do or to be done. Conversations alone do not achieve anything.

I am here to say that there is much that is the same when we speak about the leader or the manager in us. Indeed the crucial sameness is what we need to aspire to attain, and that sameness outweighs all others.

It seems to me that in our soul we need to recognize that there are times when we have to meet our calling. When the very essence of our character is being challenged.

I have observed the following results and consequences:

Step one: When character and courage come together great things happen.

Step two: When character and courage and understanding come together greater things happen.

Step three:  When character and courage and understanding and passion come together extraordinary things happen.

Step four: When character, courage, understanding, passion, and one mission come together you can change the world and you know the change you wanted!

It seems to me that our role is to explain the dream and provide unbridled opportunity for people to excel and reach that dream, and along the way to provide opportunities.

The role of a leader is to understand:

  • What it takes to cherish and kindle souls, inspire people, and provide a walk way.
  • Understand also that it is they who will deliver.
  • That we cannot really lead others when we do not know the path ourselves.
  • That we cannot expect others to know the path when we ourselves are unclear.
  • We cannot develop others when we ourselves are uncertain.

It is only when we reach step four that we have provided directional leadership and focus for all followers. All other steps are achievable as individuals only step four brings oneness to an organization.

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
