At a recent conference in Australia, I had the opportunity to raise the personal nature of my business another significant rung.
For the last 25 years, my friends have been telling me to find some way to bring my passion for guitar, singing, and songwriting into my leadership work. But I’ve resisted. I didn’t want it to be a frivolous or gratuitous thing.
But, my friend, David T.S. Wood, the man behind the Amplified Leadership Conference, insisted that I not only speak at his event, but that I play music, too.
So, I did. And it was a remarkable experience that created an unprecedented connection between me and the audience of 1200 people. And I’ve had some phenomenal audience connections over the years.
This video was captured by an audience member, and she was kind enough to send it along to me. I’m playing a song called Sailor And The Ocean, which I wrote many years ago on the same guitar you see here.
So here’s my question for you:
Do you have a passion or talent that you’ve relegated to your “personal life”, that you can bring into your so-called “business life,” too?
Do you have any examples of how you’ve done that already?
