Insights: connection, community & contribution.
Do you ever feel alone in your mission to make the world a better place? Hungering after something better can be a lonely place to live whether you’re at the beginning or in the messy middle of your mission.
Maybe you’re actually surrounded by people, but something deep inside you wants something more, or different, to those around you.
Maybe you’ve made the big leap into something different but aren’t yet sure how to attract the people who will hold the vision for you, and with you, while you work out next steps.
Maybe you’re finding it really lonely ‘at the top’ now you’re the leader and there are thoughts and things you can no longer share.
In this week’s episode we look back at my conversation with Penny Power OBE: entrepreneur, public speaker, author and community builder. As we listened to Penny’s varied experiences of loneliness and loss throughout her life and career, we also learned how those same experiences have driven her to build and serve thriving communities.
This Insights episode reflects on life being a contact support and considers how, when we create alignment with ourselves, others and the greater good, we are never really alone.
Leading in a lonely world is about connection, community and contribution.
