Do you feel like you are destined for more? More success, more money, and more opportunity?
Do you feel as if there are gifts inside of you, but none of the executives you work for can see it, or worse yet, even care?
Do you just want your “shot”? Your shot at an opportunity, your shot at becoming an executive, your shot at seeing how far you can go?
I felt the same way. When I first left the classroom (yes, I started my career as a middle school teacher) and joined an educational software company at 25 years old, that feeling of wanting and being MORE came alive. I could feel potential radiating from my pores and I thrived in taking additional responsibilities to learn and grow.
I was lucky. A few of our executives (Burl, Alison, Gregg, and Sybil) saw my potential too, and purposefully mentored me through my career. I started as an educational consultant, then became a manager, then a director of training, then head of marketing, and eventually moved into sales.
Every step of the way I was coached, encouraged and challenged. Since that time, and for almost 30 years, I’ve studied human potential, and consumed nearly every book available on success, performance and achievement. I’ve also researched leadership and hired dozens of coaches, all with one intent: to become the best executive I can possibly be.
Not everyone is lucky enough to receive personal mentoring from phenomenal executives early in their career. And that’s something I’d like to challenge. I believe every company should provide their ambitious and high-achieving employees access to executive mentors.
When we built what is now Share On Purpose it wasn’t so I could run companies. I’ve already done that, many times over.
We started it to TEACH, COACH and MENTOR smart, driven leaders who want to become executives, and learn how to run a company for us. And we do this while we are creating brands that make the world better.
We match emerging leaders in our company with our game-changing ideas. Taking into account their passion and purpose, we move them through an executive development program so they can learn how to accelerate their performance and maximize their potential.
If you’re like me, you’d think everyone would want an opportunity like this. But, what I’ve learned is this:
– Many people have potential but never maximize it.
– Many aren’t clear on what they want, so they settle for what they have.
– Some don’t take responsibility for their own success and instead choose to blame rather than co-create.
– Some simply don’t listen to the intuitive part of themselves that craves more and wants to break through fear.
- Decide what you want.
- Plan what you’ll do to create it.
- Act on your desire and don’t give up until you’ve maximized your potential and created your own opportunity for success.
