A champion has heart and courage, is dedicated and committed and harnesses passion to push through fear and uncertainty to achieve goals. A champion perseveres – when the going gets tough, they get tougher.
My definition of a champion is one who lives with integrity. One who owns failure, learns from it and understands it’s one more way to live stronger. One who strives to see things from all sides, not just there own.
One who leaves a situation better than it was before.
I had an opportunity to speak with one of the presenters at a leadership workshop. The Deputy Governor arranged for her to interview a few of us prior to the workshop. Prior to BOLD, I don’t think I would have embraced the opportunity to have this conversation – I’m just embracing every opportunity I can to take things to a higher level!
I think enthusiasm shows up in a lot of different ways in different people. There are some who have very visible signs- voice, gestures, etc. That is not me, at least most of the time. But what I did learn at BOLD is that your enthusiasm, when it is perceived by others, can be a big help in helping the team and it’s individuals reach their goals.
