1.  What is your definition of women empowerment?

Leadership Tip #1 : Collaboration can change the world

To collaborate it is necessary to have confidence - first in yourself, in your abilities, in your own good faith, the future, and of course in those around you. Collaboration is not a competition to prove who is better, who is right, who has the most original ideas. Collaboration is integration, complementation, broadening, co-creation of something new, something that can not be made by any individual.

 

Otto Scharmer in his book Theory U says that for change and learning, which are the components of collaboration, one has to jump over four major obstacles:

 

  • Not recognizing what you see.
  • Not saying what you think.
  • Not doing what you say.
  • Not seeing what you do.

 

Good collaboration deepens the relationship beyond normal levels of common thinking to common reflection, collective enthusiasm and even deeper, to the transformation and the emergence of new possibilities. World can only be changed together, in collaboration with others.

 

Collaborate with trust.

This month's thought provoking snippet

Say goodbye to your comfort zone (for a while)

 

There’s a reason we call our Comfort Zone, a ‘comfort’ zone. It’s nice in there, you’re filled with reassurance, no risks and everything you need is perfectly in place. It’s nice to run back into your comfort zone when things get challenging or even complicated because once you’re in there, nothing can worry you.

But stop for a minute and think, out of those challenging times you avoided that required you to jump out of your comfort zone, how many golden opportunities have you missed? Of course, you never know because you didn't dare go ahead and grasp them. Stepping out of your comfort zone, as cliché as it sounds, is one of the best things you would do for yourself.

We all, as humans, are afraid of the unknown. “What if……?” that crevice of uncertainty keeps pushing us back into the safe haven we live in. But would you rather stay inside that safe bubble and keep going on with your monotonous life or see a challenging opportunity, grasp it and have the best adventure of your life? As much as we are afraid of the unknown, we crave adventure. Curiosity is what kept us learning new things ever since we were children. 

Don’t be afraid to doing something totally alien to you because you’ll see someone else who was brave enough to step out of their comfort zone embrace that chance and live YOUR dream.

Life is all about learning, and every new day you get you have two choices: sit back and do nothing or do something exciting and new.

Be brave enough to step out of the safety barrier you created yourself and live the life you dreamed of, you will  never know what you’re missing out if you don’t.

 

Better an "oops!" than a "what if."
