We have ten years to refurbish the 'House' of leaders we need to drive change and champion the solutions we are currently talking about.
I wake up feeling like a big count-down timer is ticking across my forehead.
At times, I literally feel the seconds counting down as they pulse around my temples.
Nearly two decades ago, I committed to PowHERhouse. Little did I know then just how badly our work would be needed now.
Then I watched this film narrated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and illustrated by Molly Crabapple.
And I watched it again. And again.
Suddenly the last two decades of my life make so much sense.
Within moments, I experienced a deep knowing that has always been there, yet only now ready to emerge to the surface.
If we have twelve years to change the trajectory our planet, then I'm going to say we really have no more than ten as it takes time to ensure certain pieces and policies are in place. I'd like to set up a buffer.
In order for Alexandria's vision to become a reality in the next decade, an evolved level of leadership is needed.
- Without leaders in place who are READY to make the type of decisions - smart ones but not necessarily easy ones - we need to make over the next 10 years, this vision won't happen.
- We need a higher level of leadership, and we need it FAST.
- In fact, we need a process that prepares and advances high-impact leaders as fast or faster than we currently build-out world-class athletes. We need a clear, direct path.
THE LEADER PATH is a clear, direct, how-to path based on what we know, as straight-forward and obvious for leaders as an athlete's path to the NFL or NHL.
Dare I say, enough with the 'ideas worth spreading' - been there, done that - and I'm a fan.
