This past week our leadership team attended The Global Leadership Summit, and it was tremendous to hear some current global leaders discuss the mysteries of leadership. You can imagine the excitement I felt of receiving rather than presenting and how satisfying it was to have my emotional bucket filled.
Here is just one small takeaway from Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of Leanin.org.
She asked the group, “At the end of each day, can you take a moment to reflect and see three moments of ‘joy’ in your life?” For context, about two years ago she lost her husband and discussed with the attendees how she dealt with grief.
Perhaps more important from a servant leader’s perspective, do we help create moments of “joy” for those around us? Hint: if we cannot see joy in our own life, it is impossible to create joy in others.
On a personal note, I’m excited to share with you that my book is at the printer and is scheduled to be be released on August 25!
