You don’t have to be THE Leader to be A Leader @SusanMazza #HRockstars
Posted by Angela Goodeve on November 21st, 2013
The “traditional”, and often authoritative way of leading others has now been shown to be utterly counter-intuitive to fostering dedicated Employees who are passionate and fully committed to greatness in their work…let’s get real here!
What if we instead looked at Leadership as a random act of kindness…as Susan Mazza says, and made it our mission to empower Employees to be Unstoppable Leaders?
In this respect, it makes it all about the people, and the connections that you make with them on a day-by-day, moment-by-moment basis.
In Susan’s case, it started with her Dad, and a special message he left to her to remember him by doing random acts of kindness.
As Susan says: What if Leadership could be driven by the manifestation of these random acts of kindness?
How would the Leadership landscape change?
Just like anything else, it all comes down to love, and spreading that love to others; living one’s unique purpose; and living your authentic self, from the heart…
…There is no reason to believe that this cannot be applied to Leadership. In fact, this may be THE way to revolutionize leadership, as we know it, and change the entire landscape of businesses and personal relationships!
“It’s not that we need more Leaders, but we need more Leadership” ~Dave Moore
Just imagine working for a company or Boss who supported, nurtured, inspired and empowered you!
Imagine working with others who were Leaders in their own lives, and let that Heart-Centered Leadership shine through every day!
What would it feel like to be fulfilled in your purpose, and not “afraid” to express yourself in a purely authentic way?
…It is blissful, and it creates true #HRockstars!!
It makes every day fun and exhilarating. It connects you with people who are either on the same path, or who can support, encourage, inspire and empower you on your path to joy and prosperity in life.
It is always a win-win-win…
Why win-win-win rather than just win-win??
Because it is a win for the company, your family, the cause you have in your life; it is a win for you as an individual; and it is a win for the individuals you serve…it creates heroes in every day life, and surrounds you with warm and loving, yet wildly determined people who are passionate about getting the job done, and doing it right!
It also creates possibilities that you never thought were possible for your business, your personal life, and the world in general!
Imagine for a second a world in which people got over themselves and their egos, and always came at life from a heart-centered place….It would change the world from a place where we are disconnected from others and in a constant competition, to show how much we are worthy or better than others, to a place where we all worked together towards common goals.
There would be no “Winners” or “Losers”, there would be no strife or war (as the case may be)…we would all just be living in the light…the light of each other’s love, and with a drive and determination that can move mountains!
So, the next time you think of bringing another down so that you can lift yourself up, remember this:
Every time you come from a place of self-centeredness and competition you are not living in line with your ultimate values, that I KNOW you embody:
…after all, that is where we came from when we first came into the world…
…why not leave it the same way, and at the same time foster hope for generations to come!
It is about embodying true authenticity.
“The definition I use of Authenticity is: Being and acting consistent with who you hold yourself out to be for others, and who you hold yourself our to be for yourself.
The central definition is ‘who you hold yourself out to be’. It is NOT your personality, not your thoughts, not your feelings and not social protocols…it is more a DECLARATION that you make, a stand you take on yourself, a commitment to a set of values.” ~ Dave Moore – The Mooreconsortium
Go out and create random acts of kindness, have the courage to live your true authentic self with no pretences, and see how your life, your business and your relationships are transformed!!
Peace, Love, and Authenticity
