It’s almost 1 year into my leadership journey and I feel that calls for a reflective blog. Or perhaps the real reasons are that I had an end of transformational leaders programme presentation to prepare for last Friday and final reflections with my coach tomorrow?
I was incredibly nervous about my presentation to fellow leaders. I have always struggled to see the positive in what I do. This is something I am becoming better at and it’s difficult to know who to blame; it almost certainly can be attributed to the complete lack of belief in my abilities displayed by many of my school teachers but ultimately, there’s only me who can change it now. I did manage to get through the whole presentation without tears and I’m pretty proud of that!
In taking stock of the bigger picture over the last year, it has been possible to see some of the journey I have begun. I have turned these reflections into a creation on Adobe Slate- I am really enjoying playing around with this new iPad tool!
I chose the opening image of my presentation because it symbolises a journey. For me, I am the person struggling to wade through the sand dunes slipping beneath my feet but looking firmly ahead at the leader I can become: the one with a view of what’s ahead, striding confidently into the future.
