Aspirations fuel growth. In other words, good leaders are motivated by the question: “Who do you want to be when you grow up?”
This week, Melinda and I visited the Ritz Carlton, Dove Mountain Golf Resort, near Tucson, Arizona, on a business trip – we were working on our personal and professional aspirations, and the answer to our “Who do we want to be when we grow up?” question.
In leadership coaching and training we use the Personal Visioning Tool to spark aspirational thinking. Here’s how it works: the leader looks back seven years and recalls the significant forces and accomplishments alive in his/her life – joys, challenges, family dynamics, job responsibilities and professional aspirations.
