In January 2016, I made a commitment to myself to write fifty-two consecutive weekly posts for my blog, The Architects of Human Potential™. I achieved that goal (and more) as today marks the 65th edition. I am taking a sabbatical from writing the blog. I am, instead, shifting my focus to bringing Invitational Leadership™ to the market, expanding my client services and growing professional practice.
Last week’s blog was UNLOCKING YOUR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL IN PRESENTATIONS. One of the Tips and Practical Applications included a recommendation to seek feedback from the audience as a means of continuous improvement. I suggested that feedback be sought using a START, STOP and CONTINUE framework. In other words, what would your audience recommend that you start, stop and continue doing when making future presentations?
I am now asking each of you to share feedback regarding your impressions of my blog these past fourteen months. What was the ONE THING that you gained from reading my posts? What do you recommend that I START, STOP and CONTINUE doing in my future writing? Your feedback will be helpful as I evolve Invitational Leadership™ and my next book, on the horizon, by the same title. Feedback to Larry
Thank you for your continued interest in my work and support! January marked the 17th Anniversary of Human Performance Strategies (HPS). I will continue to communicate updates regarding Invitational Leadership™ and other HPS news via email. I also encourage you to visit my website www.hp-strategies.com. It contains an abundance of valuable content including the complete archives of my blog, The Architects of Human Potential™, among other innovative and unconventional thoughts on leadership.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. Correction does much, but encouragement does more. None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. Nothing is worth more than this day. Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen. I love those who yearn for the impossible. All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Tips and Practical Applications:
- If you’ve ever thought about writing, just do it! No one will be shooting at you. In fact, they will more likely be cheering you on as has been my experience while writing this blog. You will have demonstrated great courage with your writing and sharing your unique wisdom with others.
- Rather than spend unfocused time on social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), consider setting up a simple website that will provide a forum for you to write and share your ideas, opinions and perspectives. It will be your own private venue and an empowering experience!
- Innovation is the application of creativity and exploration of new possibilities. Some of the greatest breakthroughs in history (beyond inertia and the status quo) have come from those not considered experts in their fields. Demonstrate the courage to voice your views and perspectives.
