What Is the Storyline for Your Leadership?

A video titled “THE LAB: Decoy – A portrait session with a twist” demonstrates how a story can shape our reality.  The point of the video is this: “A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than what is in front of it.”  – The Lab

Consider this… as a leader, you are like the photographer shaping the image of your team or organization.

So take a snapshot of your team at this moment in time by observing things such as performance, attitude, and energy.

Does what you see reflect your commitments and intentions as a leader?

Perhaps more importantly: does the experience of those you lead reflect your commitments and intentions as a leader?

What about the perception of others who count on you and your team, such as your clients or your business partners?

As the saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words.

What would a picture of your team say about who you are as a leader at this moment in time?

Remember that you have the power to shape that image – the snapshot of what you stand for and who you are as a leader.

What is the storyline for your leadership?

Susan, thanks for a challenging application to this story for our leadership. I often wonder how much of the success of my team members is dependent on how they are perceived, rather than who they are. Thanks for making me think. Mike…
