Anything is Possible...
Three key experiences...
1. Anything is possible
My first experience was that of accomplishing the "impossible." My dad was an engineer and insisted that I learn how to change a tire before I drove. I didn’t think there was any way I could change a tire. I did, of course. The drive to learn the impossible was instilled. I believed that if I could learn the impossible, I could help others to do what they thought was impossible.
2. Perspective Matters
My second experience was gaining insight and perspective that is available from cultural immersion. As I was working my way through graduate school, I decided to take on a second "impossible challenge," to become fluent in Spanish. I moved to Ecuador to immerse myself in the language and culture to discover the power of seeing life through a multi-cultural lens. This experience helped me develop the muscle to “see” from a completely different lens.
3. Effective Leadership is Emotionally Intelligent
My third experience was seeing the extraordinary power of teamwork that comes when a culture truly embraces and practices emotional and social intelligence as one of the cornerstones of the organization.
I’ve been working with emotional intelligence, communication, and leadership skill development for years, yet when I saw cross-generational leaders grappling with the emotional courage it takes to move and inspire others, it became evident to me that I needed to mainstream this work.
