Live Beyond You

What does it mean to “pour into” the lives of your team members? Our responsibility as “beyond you” leaders is not to teach everything, but to share what we do know with those around us and those coming along behind us.” – Andy Stanley

This 6-minute video has a meaningful leadership lesson. As my colleague Margie Craver said, “Just think if everyone thought about “Live beyond You,” everyone would reap greater success!”

Safety to Fail (again)

To err is human; to forgive, divine. – Alexander Pope

Forgiveness is a gift that costs nothing.

There is tremendous power in forgiveness. We pardon mistakes or wrong choices of others as a means of growing, healing, learning and moving on. The power of forgiveness has long been documented. Think of the role it plays in self-esteem, interpersonal relations, philosophy, sports, child-rearing, education, and law.  Forgiveness brings closure and resolution. Forgiveness frees us to make better choices next time.

So, where does forgiveness fit into training and leadership?

There is no greater learning opportunity than the chance to take a risk, or to make a decision that carries the risk of failing. When we provide a safe environment in which people can try, fail, and try again, we open up a world of learning opportunities.

How have you incorporated forgiveness into your training and leadership? Please share your thoughts below.
