BACK: The old models of Leadership are crumbling!

Written on LinkedIn

Came across this post by Chance Marshall on LinkedIn
and it deeply resonated. I go back to work after a horrible and frightening month of illness. In the last 12 months I have been thrown from pillar to post by health problems. And I am not afraid to say that this, along with national and international events have crashed upon me with a weight that had been hard to put into words. But I am grateful. I am still here with family and real friends. And while some may think this should be a Facebook post I am glad someone had the bravery to say what Chance said. It is not easy being an empath. Neither do I want the strings playing for what I write, because in spite of many factors I promise I will always do my best to be kind, always write with authenticity and lean, no plunge. into my vulnerability. Yes, this is a site for "professional networks", but it has humans on it too. I return to work with my values intact. People before profit. Empathy rather than sympathy. Heart based leadership. Compassion. Respect. Justice. Fairness. Working together and leading through learning. Ethical. Transparent. The sense of humour and to paraphrase a quote I will continue speaking up for all of this though my voice quivers. Thanks Chance. The old models of hashtagleadership are crumbling. hashtagmentalhealth hashtagauthenticity

Youtube Channel launched - why not Sub?

Hi readers, colleagues and friends

I have a little YouTube channel set up. In its very early stages and looks amateurish right now, But you have to start somewhere right? Would love for you to subscribe. I plan to stream and do videos about volunteer engagement, leadership styles, well-being and mindfulness when I can. Most of these will be unscripted and from the heart rather than the brain. So hit subscribe if you’d like to. If not, that’s ok too. I hope to reach some people interested in my content. If I can help one person then I see that as great!  Thanks DJ Cronin
