Thought-full Thursday: Rekindling

Every Thursday, I provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. So take five – enjoy the inspirational quotes or and reflect on the questions that follow. 

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.

Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within”

~ Albert Schweitzer

  • Remember a time that someone in your life sparked your leadership flame. Remember the gratitude you felt. Have you thanked them? What’s stopping you?
  • Look around. Where is there potential in your team that is lying fallow?
    • What can you do to rekindle the light for that person or persons? Ask them!
