I’m serving the community of coaches every day, right now, in my pop-up Facebook group, Serve Lead Serve. Over 1,100 coaches joined last week.
One of them told me that he posted a video online of his insights from my webinar, Leading in Challenging Times.
It takes courage to make and share a video for the first time. But I told him I have a way to do better than that…
I looked him up on LinkedIn and saw that he’s had a successful career in leadership, change management and developing talent.
So I told him to turn his generic video into a 30 second video he can send by text to ONE person he cares about…
“Hi _____, I was thinking of you. I’m imagining you might be feeling some uncertainty right now. These are challenging times.
I was a leader in change management at Johnson & Johnson, Kohler and Mars.
Leading in uncertainty is what I do. Supporting high level leaders is how I do it.
Do you want to jump on a call for 15 minutes? You’ll leave it with a sense of calm and clarity and 1 specific action you can take tomorrow morning at 9am.
This is how I can contribute right now. If that’s interesting, text me back. And if you’re good for now, I love that. Take care.”
Your biggest challenge is your biggest asset
Most of my community were once high level executives or successful entrepreneurs. But even if you weren’t, you’ve almost certainly faced uncertainty in your life. Right now that’s an asset…
Maybe you helped a friend during a life-threatening illness. Maybe you were fired from a job or you’ve been bankrupt. I know members of our community who grew up in war-torn countries, members who grew up in poverty, members who lost their entire home in a fire and members who lost their life-savings in a ponzi scheme.
If you came out the other side of a challenging situation, you can help others.
Get out of your own way.
Go out and serve.
