Have you ever looked back on something really fun and inspiring and asked yourself: What just happened?
Last week was another mountain-peak episode on the Good Leadership journey. Three specific things are creating happiness and optimism about how goodness is spreading through leadership and business:
1. Twenty-seven leaders joined the Good Leadership Training program last Friday – each of them is on a journey to learn how to radiate goodness more freely in their leadership. Under the artful coaching and facilitation of Amy Tomczyk and Peter Germann, the participants are engaged in peer-coaching and deep learning into how to live with less stress and lead with less fear.
2. I completed my most important keynote speech so far at a Leadership Symposium for one of America’s most admired healthcare organizations. More than 1200 leaders heard the story and explored the core messages of the goodness movement. Through the VoiceHive internet polling platform, we shared an interactive dialogue about The Cornerstones of Goodness and The Seven Fs. When asked, “Do you believe goodness pays in leadership and business today?”, 92% indicated “absolutely” or “mostly.” That’s good!
3. At the Good Leadership Breakfast last week, I shared the stage with the first woman President of Gustavus Adolphus College: Becky Bergman. Together we raised more than $4,200 for the Southern Valley Alliance for Battered Women.
At each of these three mountain peaks, we asked for help in this way: Will you sign the Goodness Pledge today?
What’s the Goodness Pledge?
We introduced this idea only 8 days ago and nearly 1000 people have signed the pledge! Every movement needs a mantra and a call-to-action. Here’s The Goodness Pledge:
Over the coming weeks and months I will share thoughts about “the movement” we are starting, and fresh ideas to help us all spread goodness. The centerpiece of the strategy is our commitment to emailing you “Sparks” – bright & happy messages to help you stay positive through the twists and turns of good leadership.
