A few months ago, I received a welcomed (yet unexpected) message from acquaintance Gary DePaul, Ph.D., CPT. Gary is a leadership author, researcher, consultant and podcaster. I met Gary when I worked at the International Society for Performance Improvement a little over 10 years ago. While there, I was the Director of Membership and worked to connect professionals with backgrounds in Instructional Design, Human Resources, Training and others that are committed to bettering workplaces to be more efficient. So, it was no surprise to me that his essential and supercool podcast is centered around the importance of leadership, and spreading the message that the potential to lead is in all of us. As you might imagine, I was so honored to be a recent guest on his podcast entitled, ‘The Unlabeled Leadership.’
During our talk, we discussed about how acts of trailblazing (both big and small) can help shape the lives of others. I was also able to share my thoughts and sincere expressions of gratitude for some of my favorite ‘unsung’ heroes (TEACHERS), as well as expound on concept of ‘Good Trouble,’ and further examine the idea that courage is a muscle that requires practice and intention before it wastes away.
I hope you are able to listen, learn from our conversation and check back on ‘The Unlabeled Leadership’ podcast for more episodes on how to be a better leader. Thank you again to Gary for thinking of me and granting me this tremendous opportunity to share a bit of my journey, my thoughts on courage and to exercise my own daring in the process.
