I was wondering about what to share when I looked at my now 30 day old son sleeping soundly in his crib. My brain was instantaneously flooded... No no...not with Oxytocin - the hormone of love but with leadership lessons from the whole birthing experience!
Yup! This is what happens when you are passionate about stuff! You get insights at life's choicest moments! Anyway.
Here are 6 my most empowering leadership takeaways from child birth.
#1. Set your intentions, but be open
#2. Expect the unexpected but understand that you always have a choice
#3. Opinions are great but know that your decision is unique to your situation
#4. Make those tough calls ( warning: your decision might not be the most popular one!)
#5. Celebrate every achievement however big or small in meaningful ways
#6. Be present
So moms and dads - I want you to think back to the day your son/ daughter was born; I would love to hear about your life/ leadership takeaways from that empowering day! Go ahead and share your comments below.
