Successful Leader Fortunes: 6

A blog series tied a leadership YouTube video by AB2 Consulting Services, LLC. Imagine fortune cookies cracked open, the fortune is read, along with the statement “as a leader.” Then discuss. Consider trying it with your own team.

Fortune: good things will come to you in due course of time, as a leader.

This fortune reminds me of how as leaders (Dev team members, parents athletes), we want to be the best at something, even if we just learned how to do it. Then, we are disappointed when we experience we can’t instantly be the best at that thing.

Children learn to walk by iterating over and over again. They practice. They learn what works and what doesn’t work. If we allowed ourselves even 50% of that perspective and rigor with our own work, imagine the possibilities!
