Leading Leaders...

June 04, 2015

Leading leaders
For many of us, just standing in front of a group 
 and leading a process, a meditation, or giving a talk 
 can already be an edge.
But the ante goes up considerably 
 when the group we are leading are leaders.
When they are people we look up to as mentors...
whoa, the temptation to sit tight, swallow our words
and leave it to someone "better" qualified 
gets strong.
 How many times have you had something to say 
 and let that thought stop you?
The thing is,
 there is no one better qualified to say what you have to say.
You are in an absolutely unique and irreplaceable position to bring 
your truth.
We all need each others leadership.
All of the leaders that I know get nervous, 
they have uncertainty, and they feel fear, 
 but they lead anyway.
They choose to feel the fear and even let the fear be seen,
they allow the quiver in their voice to be heard,
they risk being vulnerable.
And magic happens.
"My voice is born repeatedly in the fields of uncertainty."
