Are you wondering what that means?
Of course you are.
Shining leadership is when you lead not only by example, but by shining the spotlight on those around you.
One of the most important aspects of playing at top level in your Social A-Game is allowing others to have their moments to shine and understanding that when you focus on and amplify the strengths of your children, friends, clients, partners, team, etc in living their dreams, it benefits everyone involved.
What comes around goes around, after all.
It doesn’t take away from us or our message when we empower others to step up and take center stage. In fact, if you make your success or your message all about yourself, online or off… you may start to look more like a narcissist than a leader.
The goal is not to have all of the attention on you whether you are at a dinner party, speaking at a conference or on a social platform. It is about listening, engaging, focusing on the gifts that everyone has to share and supporting those around you to embrace their talents and lead a life of happiness and success. When you are playing at your top level, others will be inspired to step into the role of a leader as they watch you live and lead with generosity, integrity and grace.
Playing your A-Game actually has the ripple effect when you inspire others to step up into their role as a leader. It’s not about standing on a soapbox and telling people to do what you say. It is more of a lead by example model where doing your best work and encouraging others to do the same will inspire them to do their best work and so on…
Shining leadership is a form of leadership that lifts others up and makes the world a better place. It gives everyone the opportunity to thrive and be appreciated. It is about focusing on the positives in everyone. And as we all know, what we focus on grows…
Does this sound like a type of leadership that you can embrace? Why or why not?
