Some of you might not know that I teach a course on Leading Talent Development at NYU Wagner. One of the reasons I decided to add "Professor" next to my name is because I wanted to help influence the next generation of leaders and managers in relation to how they see human capital in the workplace. More importantly, I wanted to reinforce how they should invest in human capital that might not look or identity like they do.
Several months ago, my co-founder, Lauren sent me a Ted Talk by Dr. Brené Brown and The Power of Vulnerability. Two weeks ago, I was at Harvard University participating in a Global Leadership Program and once again I had the pleasure of learning more about Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown came up with The Daring Greatly Leadership Manifesto. At some point in our lives we’ll lead and be lead; so it’s best to equip ourselves with tools to become effective leaders. I found this manifesto useful as I think about the way I lead. Do you have a manifesto you live by? If not, hopefully you can find some synergies from Dr. Brown.
