To Lead, Live & Look Ahead (Nov.)

Here at LeaderShape, we want to experience a world where everyone leads with integrity and lives in possibility. Where we work in community with one another. Where everyone sees their own gifts and finds ways to use them for the greater good.

We want to intentionally create spaces for others to be included and contribute in this world and then by doing so, lead others to do the same – “to lead, live and look ahead”.

This blog series is a place to find updates from our Community Engagement team at the beginning of each month. The updates will include #Day7, #LeaderShapeChat, and any other upcoming campaigns and projects you can participate in with us.

Day 7
This month, #Day7 focused on gratitude. Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Expanding your gratitude can help you lead a happier and healthier life. LeaderShape gave tips and tricks to help you become a more grateful person in your everyday life. We had quizzes, articles, videos, and quotes to learn how to #PracticeGratitude in a fun and engaging way. Many fellow LeaderShapers got involved and it was a great success!

Day 7

This month, #Day7 will be focusing on creativity. Many believe that only certain people can be creative, but LeaderShape believes that every individual is capable of being creative in their own ways. We will debunk this “only certain people can be creative” theory and share ways to find and embrace different kinds of creativity. Throughout the entire day (Saturday, October 7th), we will have quizzes, articles, videos, and other fun ways to #FindYourCreativity on our Twitter feed – be sure to follow along.  

#LeaderShapeWeb

Join us for this month’s LeaderShape Webinar Series on Monday, October 16th at 12 p.m. CST. We will be welcoming Tricia Homer and Jackie Pearce Garrett as they present A Space for Reflection: Recharge your Leadership Through Nourishment/Self-Care.

#LeaderShapeChat

Each month, we host a Twitter chat that exemplifies our belief of “to lead, live”. On Wednesday, October 25th, we encourage you to join us on Twitter for our #LeaderShapeChat about activating your strengths. “With the new day comes new strengths and new thoughts” – Eleanor Roosevelt.

In September, we talked about how self care plays a critical part in leadership and our lives. Catch up on the recap here.

LeaderShape Graduates

In September, we continued to strengthen our engagement with LeaderShapers through our social media efforts by starting a “Where Are They Now” campaign. We highlight members of our Institute, Catalyst, and Resilience programs by sharing their story, advice, or favorite quote.

#ToLeadRead

It’s National Book Month! To celebrate, we want to send you a LeaderShape gift bag with one of our favorite books! Throughout the years, we have been inspired by many stories, learned some lessons, sparked creative ideas, and even had a few “how fascinating” reflections. All of this happened by simply turning a page. Throughout the rest of the month, we invite you to post on Instagram a picture of you and your favorite book with the hashtag #toleadread.

#Day7: Staying in Action

Here at LeaderShape we get excited about people staying in action. We get excited about LeaderShapers (and anyone, really!) who are living out their vision and doing their part to create “a just, caring, and thriving world where all lead with integrity and a healthy disregard for the impossible.” We talk about staying in action in all of our programs. We talk about it with our community. Many of you, especially our Institute graduates, understand that when we mention #Day7 that we are talking about staying in action.#Day7

Although every day is #Day7 – a chance to keep learning and moving forward – we love how the seventh of each month can serve as an opportunity to reflect on our LeaderShape experiences, connect with one another, and take action toward our vision. You can find us writing, thinking, and posting about all things staying in action. But it’s not a #Day7 without our community! You can join in by responding to our prompts, asking questions, sharing posts, and taking time to reflect on your LeaderShape experience. And if you have big news on your vision or anything about your #Day7, email us at community@leadershape.org.
