I’ve been asked many times how I thrive with less sleep. My answer often is that it is not that I’m okay with less sleep, but rather the things that I spend my time on are related to my life passion, therefore it is not a chore for me. In fact, in most cases, it does energize me and inspire me to put in the time. An example is writing blogs.
So what exactly are my interests? Here are my interests:
- For years I have developed a love for people. They are people who work and interact with me either directly or through matrix organization. At times, they are my work acquaintances. I believe that people are our most important asset and that caring for them helps the organization achieve its goal.
- Mentoring – helping people understand the lay of the land and navigate the corporate landscape. Enabling others to fit right in and achieve success early on in their tenure at the firm. Imparting knowledge to enable others to grow and develop.
- Coaching – for more experience folks, coaching is the key to their growth and development. Coaching is used to improve awareness, set goals and improve performance. It also helps others think through issues and figure out the way forward.
- Teaching – over the last six years, I developed the love for teaching. From Agile to leadership development, I realized that I love helping others grow and develop. My John Maxwell certification fueled my love to help others develop their leadership capabilities through John’s teaching.
My love for developing talent stems from the fact that I believe that if we develop our people, we can help them achieve their goal, thereby increasing our firm’s overall capabilities. It is important for us to realize that collectively we can make things better. By ourselves we can effect change, by our collective wisdom we can do more and move the needle in the right direction.
Writing is a labor of love. If you like my post, please share it. If you disagree with my viewpoint, share me your thoughts.
