Life Lessons for Leaders: Finding Your Voice
“When one’s voice is true, it comes from one’s soul.” What a powerful statement. People know when you are being your most authentic self. You create a resonance with them that they can feel mentally, physically and in their heart. Your voice creates trust and allows you to have conversations you never thought you could have, yielding a sense of common purpose, creating commitment and ultimately outstanding results.
If you would click on Finding Your Voice. before you read on, I would like to share with you a video I watched this morning about women finding their voice.
A few months ago, I wrote a blog about feeling invisible, not knowing whether I make a difference or not. This is a feeling many women I know, in all walks of life, have expressed to me over and over again. I received quite a few responses to that blog, telling me that I am heard, and my voice resonates in people’s hearts. They don’t always tell me, but there have been times when that voice caused them to pause, take a deep breath, and make a mental shift in their thought process. I know I have found my voice, and I’m getting stronger every day. It is as it should be. Growth is a process, one we never complete.
Leaders, your team(s), are listening to your voice. They are looking for you to be the authentic person you are meant to be. Speak the truth of your vision, and wisely sit back and allow each of them to speak theirs. When you join your voices together, you create a powerful choir that will touch the heart of all mankind in ways you never dreamt possible. This is the stuff of innovation. It is creation at it’s very best. No one person has the answer. It is only when we work together, in common purpose, that we make the progress we all wish to see.
