Leadership Lessons From Rudolph

Proof of Rudolf’s great leadership:

“Rudolph’s story depicts him stepping up in the face of adversity. Without his willingness to do so, there would have been no leader and no Christmas.

Rudolph’s hoofed adventure distinguished him as a beacon of light–clearly identifying him as a leader…

Rudolph surrounded himself with goal-oriented, hard working reindeer.

Rudolph was smart; he was clever enough to survive delivering presents in the South despite having to do so during deer-hunting season!

Rudolph always maintained a positive attitude while leading the group.

Rudolph embraced his differences and turned them into strengths.

Rudolph was driven by his passion.”

Thanks to Don Yaeger and his Chevron leadership workshop for this lesson.

Only 5 days until Christmas!

Let It Shine!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our
deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not
serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure
around you. We were born to make manifest the glory
of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it
is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we
unconsciously give other people permission to do the
same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson
