We have been powerfully reminded this summer in Australia that our world is continually impacted by our collective actions and decisions, and yet it can feel on a day-to-day level that much is actually out of our control.
However we can make a difference if we really want to, in our lives and those of others
And I have been hearing more and more from colleagues and friends that NOW is the time for all of us to step up and contribute to making the world we want to live in - and not quietlly accept the one that has been created for us.
If you have been angry and find yourself yelling even more at the television - perhpas you are actually saying what the we both need to say and hear.
If you feel helpless, scared or frustrated - can you listen to what you feel needs to be created or changed to make the world a better, healthier and fairer world for us all.
If you have seen gaps in leadership lately and work that needs to be done - maybe it is the sign that it is YOU that needs to step up and be the one to make this change happen.
And you can do it your way - true to the values you hold dear and in line with world you want to have for the future.
If you are interested in doing this work - I am willing to travel that path with you, to guide you in your leadership development and hold you to your commitment to making the world a better place.
If we have learnt one thing this summer, it is that the time for change is now and we all have a role to play.
Your role may be more than you ever thought it would be. Let me know if you want to go on a journey to find out.
Here's to being powerful, unstoppable and accountable for our own future in 2020.
