"You keep reinventing yourself." said Debbye Crofoot-Morley, Director of Campaign Advancement, Holocaust Museum, Houston. We could not stop laughing. It is true and funny. I never thought how important reinventing yourself is as a leadership development tool. Debbye and I have known each other for more than 15 years. We met when she served on the Board of one of our clients. She has seen my life, career, and company evolve. It is an iterative process for me.
Three keys for reinventing yourself are:
- Test your mind talk, look at what is true, false and what you don't know. What is the truth about where you are in this moment?
- Meditate, pray, and go into nature to find out what you really want and value. Will it matter to you 20 years from now?
- Talk with a mentor, executive development specialist, and/or spiritual healer to get clear on an action plan for you. How do you do one thing now to reinvent yourself?
This is how I do it. I hope it helps you. As school starts this year, let's put ourself back into school. Life school and learn how to #OwnYourValue.
