The Sting of Friendship. Reason to Read #23

Scorpions as playthings?  You bet!  I grew up in the Sonoran Desert.  Scorpions, tarantulas and snakes were my playthings.

Scorpion | leadership | Friendship

In my upcoming book, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional, I write about an experience I had with my friend, Debbie, when I was 11 years old.   This experience has something to do with scorpions; and it’s an experience that still stings even today.

The book will be available in paperback and on Kindle very soon.  I’ll keep you posted.

There are many, many reasons to read the book, and I’ve provided reason 23 today – the ways that friendship can sting.  If you haven’t read the other reasons in my countdown, you can click on any of the following links.

Reason #24: Leadership Defined in ONE Word

A few years ago, I used social media to ask a question:

“If you had to define leadership in one word, what word would it be?”

Think about it….is it possible to define leadership in one word?  The answers I received were from all over the world.  I have combined some of them into a Wordle…. Leadership | Definition | Navigating Your Fishbowl Would you add your own one-word definition to the Wordle?  What would it be?

In my upcoming book, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional, I give you the ONE word I discovered that defines leadership in every circumstance and from every perspective.

Wanna know what that word is?  (hint – it’s NOT in the Wordle) The book will be out soon!  Learning the ONE word that defines leadership is reason #24 for reading my book.

Will the Real Hero Please Stand Up? – Reason #25

Action Hero City | Jackie Bailey

Man Saves Baby from Burning Building

Woman Pulls Stranger from Car Wreck

Young Boy Calls 911 and Saves His Fathers Life

These are feel-good headlines.  They often give us pause to reflect on what our own actions might be if we found ourselves in the same circumstance.

We don’t have to perform tremendous feats to be leadership heroes.  In leadership, we can be heroic by taking the action necessary to ensure the right outcome.

In my upcoming book, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional, I will provide you with ways to become heroic in your leadership.  That is reason 25 in my 30-reason countdown.

In my book I share examples of three individuals who became heroic simply by using their influence with intentional action.  YOU can be a leadership hero, too!
