What storms teach us about perception and the power of the positive flip. | InspireHUB


The other night my husband poked his head in my office and said, “You got to see this! It looks like hell is coming across the lake at us.” To which I responded, “Let me grab my camera.” 😏

It’s funny, but there’s also something revealing about our responses to the storms of life. Sometimes we get worried, other times we may be afraid, and other times we face them with expectation.


Perception and the power of the positive flip.

It’s interesting how storms are a guarantee in this world, but how we still seem surprised when they arrive.

They are disruptive but also revealing. I never knew this Canadian lake could look so tropical. Storms have a way of changing our perceptions and seeing new beauty.

We are all weathering a storm right now, and it’s hard, but we are also rediscovering the beauty in many things we took for granted.

Have a blessed weekend!

Good leaders understand that loyalty also means unleashing people. | Lead with Hart

Loyalty matters. People don’t leave you because they aren’t “loyal”. Many times they leave because they are being loyal to themselves and aren’t willing to stay where they can’t make the most difference with their lives.

Most humans aren’t “jerks”. They actually want to know they are making a real difference. If they can make a difference working with you, they will usually stay.

Yet, some leave. Sometimes, it’s because their life mission is beckoning. Encourage them!

What Rubik's Cube can teach us about leadership and activating empathy. | Lead with Hart

It's possible for an entire team of individuals to be both right and wrong simultaneously. Imagine a group of 6 people who've never seen a Rubik's cube and each person can only see their completed side. The first says "This cube is blue" and another says "This cube is orange" and it continues. Meanwhile, someone else whom everyone trusts is validating that each person is right. Confusion ensues.

Wise leaders won't get angry; they will get curious. Believing the best in their team, they will begin to ask questions, first, to understand what they share in common and then to understand what they don't. They know there aren't just 'two sides' to a situation but that there can be multiple viewpoints. They remember it's possible for each person to be accurate in their personal observations and still be missing a side.
