Leadership Insights #21: Discover a Secret Key to Authentic Connection

Published 2 months ago • 2 min read

I have not been out much over the last few weeks, other than to physical therapy appointments, but I am very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. Pictured above is an unfiltered sunset view from my bedroom which has become a sanctuary for healing, reading, and writing.

I know that the renewed strength I desire for my knee and body in the future is contingent on my discipline and consistency today. PT and rest are vital. There are many days when I'm tempted to push ahead with activity because I get impatient, but the healing process has its own timeline, and I've been learning to accept it and even embrace the quiet rhythm of it.

It's given me many opportunities to reflect on life and connect with others. I've had authentic conversations with long-time colleagues and friends and have really appreciated those who are present and take time to really listen, engage, and even offer creative ideas or introductions.

We have a lot of travel ahead for TruPotential Group, so I'm not complaining about this down-time!

Wherever you are in life, whether busy or slow, I hope you are also able to embrace it for what it's worth. New seasons lie ahead, so soak up all you can from this one!

A big shout-out to Nikola Jokić of the Denver Nuggets; this man absolutely fascinates me. There’s something about the way he behaves on and off the court that I deeply admire and respect. Watching him during interviews, I find myself completely engaged, absorbing every single word he says. Keep in mind, he speaks very few words, and that’s one of the things I respect so much about him as a player and a leader. I have become a basketball fan because of the Denver Nuggets. I admire how true...

*Enneagram Workshop in Frisco, CO with TPG facilitator, Tim Bender Have you ever been in a situation with someone you cared about and realized you had offended them without intending to? Like all of a sudden, you see them shut down emotionally? Or they lash out, and you're back-peddling in your mind trying to figure out what in the world you said or did to warrant such anger? We all get offended for different reasons. That is obvious. But what I didn't understand until I dove deeper into the...
