I love working with intelligent, competent women who have the capacity to make a difference to Australia and the world!
And I’m lucky… most of my clients fit in that category. Many, though, are so immersed in daily activity and tasks, self doubt or fear that they disconnect from the value and impact their contribution makes.
Too often our attempt to do too many things clouds the bigger picture. Our impulse to respond to the latest demand or live up to someone’s expectations can easily grind us down.
Leadership (and work satisfaction!) requires us to stay connected to the bigger picture and focus on the value of our work and its impact on our teams, our organisations and communities.
Next time you feel overwhelmed, stop! Scale up: ask yourself what you’re doing and how it’s connected to something bigger? Think about the value your contribution is making to your organisation, your team, your community, or nation.
Whether you’re writing a brief, developing a marketing plan, completing a research project or working as an assistant, you’ll be making a difference – even if you haven’t noticed.
When you stay connected to your contribution and the difference you’re making you’ll find the inner reserve to move through difficult tasks and easily replace inertia and resistance with action so that not only will you deliver results, you’ll bring others with you!
