From the Joy of Leadership

My to-do List

  1. If you could receive anything you want from being a leader, what would you want? Make a list.
  2. Look at your list. What can you give to the people you work with in order to receive what you want? (Remember: you get what you give.) Next to your wish list, for each item, write something that you can give.
  3. Think of a person who has disappointed you. What can you give this person? A small act of giving could change your relationship. Remember to give a gift that is harmful to you or to others.
  4. Make list of circumstances in your leadership and your life that are not going the way you want them to go. In each situation, how can you make the small shift from getting to giving?

Things to think about… and consider.
