    Steps 1 and 2: Envision and Reflect to define purpose

    Your purposeful leadership journey commences with two pivotal steps: Envision and Reflect. Let’s start with the first one.

    Envisioning means setting a clear intention and purpose. It involves nurturing an intentional mindset, distancing from a reactive approach and forming a connection between your inner self and your leadership aspirations. This stage unifies and balances your external skills with your inner character.

    During the envisioning stage, leaders are encouraged to reflect on three key questions: first, exploring motivations and the desired legacy behind their leadership; second, identifying the unique strengths or promises brought through leadership; and third, understanding the values or principles that guide their leadership. Reflecting on these three questions enables you to draft a purpose statement. This is a statement that encapsulates the why, the promise, and the values of your leadership. It is a dynamic document, evolving as you traverse your leadership journey.

    As you prepare your purpose statement, envision your boldest leadership dream, without limitations, that will anchor you on your journey. This task will involve profound reflection, as you explore past experiences to unearth your motivations and ambitions. Insights from these reflections serve as building blocks for constructing your leadership model, which is a combination of your personal beliefs, goals, and skills related to your leadership. 

    Once you’ve envisioned how you want to lead, it’s on to step 2: Reflect. Here you delve deeper inward to mine experiences for leadership insights. Reflection involves scrutinizing your motivations and identifying the top motivators by contemplating impactful moments in your life and career. It’s about evaluating leadership actions to separate the effective from the ineffective and develop a personalized leadership vocabulary, choosing words that resonate profoundly with your experiences and values.

    The next step in your reflection is to draft your leadership beliefs. This will bring your values and vocabulary to life, revealing what you truly believe about leadership. This step aims to unearth a deeper understanding of your purpose, motivations, and experiences, revealing strengths, growth areas, and lessons learned from the journey, shaping an authentic leadership style uniquely tailored to you.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
