“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
~ John Steinbeck
“When you are inspired in your work, everything seems to fall into place.”
~ Wayne Dyer
“Each of us has our own work to do, our own path to walk.”
“With an open mind, we gain insight into ideas and expressions that we may have overlooked or not noticed at all.”
~ James Van Praagh
Definitely a chill in the air! My bike rides will require warmer clothes! But more than a simple chill in the air, it is a definite sign of things now and future! If only you stop and listen to it and feel it. The awareness of self, in a leader, can definitely pick up the subtle and not so subtle feelings of a chill in the air. You will indeed thank your keen insight that “all may not be right!” If there is a chill in the air, don’t ignore it! Trust your instincts. A chill may be a disengagement from productivity, creativity and the commitment to a collective vision.
Most importantly, start first with yourself! Are you connected to those around you? Is your mood and your actions impacting on people’s work experience? Have you created an unacceptable situation? Are you distracted and ineffective? Are you impacting on everyone? Have you created the chill in the air?
A chill in the air can interfere with the meaning of our work. It is important, as a leader, to envision the future and to embrace strong, warm relationships and empower everyone to do their best. Everyone needs a sense of purpose. Tap into your intuition and find the draft that is creating the chill in the air!
