I have been thinking a lot lately about “abundance.” My life is so abundant – with love, with priviledge, with material goods, with health. And I am grateful. I am also thinking about abundance in my life and the responsibility that comes with that, particularly at this time of change in our country. And as a leadership coach, I am thinking of abundance as it applies to leadership, as I watch successful leaders transparently share their knowledge, experience and wisdom.
To quote Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:
“Talent is always conscious of its own abundance, and does not object to sharing.“
Perhaps as leaders we can give some thought to how we can share our “abundance of talent” with others, growing capacity in our teams and staff members. What can we teach this week? What wisdom can we share? What problems can we solve together, merging our talents? I encourage you to ponder this and list some ways you can share your “abundance of talent.” Enjoy!
