The Leadership Mints Guy
Here’s an idea to help you bounce back from a devastating defeat.
Okay you screwed up. The team you led finished way out of the money. Your leadership is being questioned –mostly by you. You feel lousy. Your get up and go got up and went. The only thing you can lead now is a scream. And it seems you”ll never stop wiping the eggs of embarrassment off your face.
Cheer up. Start fresh. That’s what I do when I find myself at the short end of the stick. I know. Easier said that done. Well, read on.
When I am feeling burned out, I get some relief when I think of the Greater American Prairie where the destruction of so many wildfires would inevitably lead to the creation of so many vibrant wildflowers.
The wildflowers-out-of- wildfires concept gave even more credence Pablo Picasso’s observation that : “Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.”
Indeed Picasso could have been referring to the Great American Prairie. The Great American Prairie is indeed an example of creation out of devastation.
