Striving to take a Radical LEAP every day is important. So important in fact, that I believe your ability to cultivate Love, generate Energy, inspire Audacity and provide Proof would not only be the foundation of your success today and tomorrow, but it will be the core of your leadership legacy, the influence that you have on others, and the reputation that you earn in your field.
Doing what you love in the service of people who love what you do is about fostering a deep, unwavering devotion to the plight of the human condition, and the challenge, joy, and ultimately the responsibility of our own experience. To be an Extreme Leader is really nothing more than the challenge to be fully human at work, at home, in the community, and in the world. And to be fully human means that you accept a radical level of personal accountability for making the future markedly better than the present.
Accountability has become an uncomfortable idea. It’s that thing that people desperately want other people to take. “These people need to be more accountable!” is an edict that I’ve heard more times than I care to remember.
To be an Extreme Leader is to understand that you are accountable. You. Do you need to enlist other people? Of course. Do you have to make things happen all by your little lonesome? Of course not. Professional executive leadership coaching can help you with this process. Not only to inspire and motivate you but also support you along the way and encourage you to believe in your highest potential to be a better leader.
This radical level of accountability isn’t simply about being more effective and productive at work. It’s not just about achieving goals and accomplishing tasks, and it’s not about proving to anyone how wonderful a person you are. It is about living, breathing, toiling, and playing way out there on that radical edge where you simultaneously stoke your business to phenomenal success, amplify your personal life to the loudest possible volume of joy and meaning, and change the world for all of us.
