Back from the brink

Anna Meares - another motivational story in over coming adversity.     I watched Anna during the Olympics and was totally blown away by her courage, her determination her never say die attitude.   In January of this year many thought she would never ride again and she ended by claiming an Olympic silver medal and she was so very close to gold. 

Courage and Open Heart Leadership: the MindMap (Defining 21st century leadership)


I'm working with Phil Dourado to define a kind of leadership that matches what we need as individuals and organizations in the 21st Century. I've dubbed it Open Heart Leadership and started a blog to try and define it in theory and in practice. Phil suggested I post regularly here and ask Hub members for help in sharpening our thinking...We are far more likely to get it right that way.

Here's my first post on the subject, starting with Courage and Leadership

Book: There Is No Me Without You

I have just finished reading this book which, isn’t your traditional leadership tome.  It is so much more than that. 

Written by Melissa Fay Greene it chronicles the life of Haregewoin Teferra. More importantly, Haregewoin’s commitment, challenges and struggles in opening her doors to dozens of homeless (many HIV/AIDS) orphaned children of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
