As Prime Minister Trudeau calls a ‘Time Out” so he avoid answering questions about his finance misdeeds and his lack of management skills, we urgently need authentic leaders more than ever.
As Prime Minister Boris Johnson hides behind experts to avoid responsibility for the Pandemic debacle, we urgently need authentic leaders more than ever.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has stepped up efforts to reassert his control after 10 days of street protests and strikes triggered by disputed elections – we urgently need authentic leaders more than ever.
As the Trump White House is corrupting democracy and lying in front of our eyes, we urgently need authentic leaders more than ever.
Not the same type of leaders – “leaders” who know how to play the “Trump” game. Or “Leaders” who ‘know someone’ who can do them a favour. Not “Leaders” who only care about preserving their power – and are motivated by hatred and fear, not by love and truth.
What we need right now is leaders with a lion heart – passionate, brave, engaged, creative. Leaders who are not afraid to step in. To take action. Leaders who may not have the answers yet – but they know that their passion will guide them in the right direction.
Leadership Is Who You Are
With the election coming fast this leader is YOU, speak up now! True leadership is – and has always been – who you are – the real you. When you are truly YOU, when you find what that thing that makes your heart sing is – you automatically become a leader. And you don’t have to be a liberal, or to have friends in high places. The Leadership archetype is embedded in each single one of us. To be a true leader, you don’t need a college degree. You don’t need to go down the Trump version of the ‘Yellow Brick Road”, because this road is not been paved with good intentions for a while now.
The COVID 19 pandemic, is challenging you to find that spark. To find that purpose that touches your soul and puts a fire in your belly!. And then act now, for tomorrow will be too late. You will know when you’re on the right track if you’re enjoying yourself.
Truth always feels right.
There is a reason why DIY is popular, we like and trust people who enjoy what they’re doing, being real. Do you watch DIY shows, don’t you love these people who DIY their own life. They are passionate, they LOVE what they are doing, and they are an inspiration and a true model of leadership for everyone who resonated with them.
Anyone can be that leader – and yes, you can be that leader too. This is the best opportunity of the year to get in touch with the creative, authentic leader inside of you.
Ignite the leader within, Geoffrey
