I have often thought that it would be great to have access to resources that provided me with leadership tips that were common sense and easy to take on board. I guess, when I think about it, I wanted the version of leadership that an overly honest friend would give me if I went to them for help, rather than the theoretical concepts that I could find in leadership literature.

Throughout the years, I have held a number of leadership roles. Some of my experiences have been great, some really not that great. I have had many moments of self-reflection as I have worked to understand my behaviours and the way that I work with others. The end result is that I am not where I want to be yet (are we ever?) but I am on the way. I am grateful for every experience that I have had along the way and I feel that a great way to show that gratitude is to share my experiences with others. If I can provide the “overly honest friend” version of leadership, then I will consider my mission to be accomplished.

  1. D…very fine example of how to get people to change behaviours. Perhaps making it more available will enable more people to comment. This is a truly good conversation/discussion starter…the very helpful friend opening the door. Keep it up 🙂

    1. Hi Rob, Thank you for your feedback; I really appreciate it. I have only just started to share the blog, but will look at sharing it more widely. Thanks for taking the time to comment! TCL


  2. Very inspirational Deanne. I’ve learned as we progress through the journey of life we don’t just grow older, but if we are self aware we can make a change to become more us. Good and bad experiences contribute to the end product and give us the opportunity to change the person we are and provide personal growth. I’m so glad to have found this blog…..it talks to my soul. I always belief that every individual should strive to be the best they can be and find ultimate happiness whatever that might mean personally. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, Martinette. I am so pleased to hear that this blog is useful for you. Your comments around being self aware and experiencing personal growth made a lot of sense to me. When I look back on my life, it often feels as though the majority of my learning and growth has come from my worst experiences. Thanks again! TCL.
