I am in the middle of a three day leadership program with 34 leaders from across the Minnesota State College and Universities system and I am feeling grateful for the people I get to work with. We asked them to describe what energized them about being a leader and one group created this wordle.
A second group wrote this as their leadership mission statement: “…collaborative learning and sharing best practices while networking and building new relationships. Through fun activities, where we are able to laugh together, will fuel our creative and innovative thought.”
And as we wrapped up today one leader shared this, “I am so grateful for the generosity of my colleagues. They trust me and have granted me the freedom to make mistakes and grow in my role while giving me the benefit of doubt.”
As leaders we have the opportunity to get to know ourselves better by being open to the wisdom and the insight of those we work with.
What have you learned from those you work with?
