Leadership Lessons from Mom
“Mothers often have the first impact and make the strongest impressions on us. Of course, my father made an impact, too. My mom was a housewife, but I often say she was the best leadership coach who chose to be a housewife. I took 40 lesson from my childhood all the way up to my mom’s death. In my book, “Leadership Lessons from Mom,” I correlate the lessons I learned from my mother, how I lead and how I teach others to lead in business and in life.”
Why Is This Important?
“I have a passion for leadership, which was instilled by my mother, beginning with values and principles. The lessons I learned that relate to business start from a foundation of values and principles.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
“Values are what you live by daily, and if you live by them daily, then they become principles, which become automatic. On top of your values, your character is built. Every decision you make should flow back to that. When I speak, coach or consult with organizations—whether we’re doing strategic planning or building their vision, mission and values—the values are the first thing we build. They are the foundation of what the organization will become. Every strategy and decision is built upon that and designates who you and your organization are daily.”
