It's been a full year since I launched Coaching for Leaders, so in this special anniversary episode, Bonni and I look at a more personal topic: what leadership lessons we've learned from our son Luke in the first six months of his life. As you'll see, the lessons could apply to many relationships, both personal and professional.
What leadership lessons we've learned (or been reminded of) in our first six months of parenting:
- Sleep deprivation can take down anybody.
- Expectations are huge…and a bit of grace goes a long way.
- No matter how organized you are, you will get barfed on.
- There is true joy to be found anywhere and everywhere.
- It's really not about you most of the time.
I'm announcing the Coaching for Leaders e-newsletter! If you would like to subscribe to receive monthly articles, interviews, videos, and other leadership resources, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE. Also, you'll receive as a bonus, a video and downloadable list of the 10 Books That Will Make You a Better Leader!
In this episode, I also referred to my article on the Chick-fil-A leadership lesson. You can find that article here.
