On Stepping Up

Today, we continue our discussion on the 3 major elements required to have the most effective peer advantage:

  1. Showing Up
  2. Stepping Up
  3. Following Up

Stepping up is exactly what Leo’s Boston Bruins did versus the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, sweeping the Canes 4-0 in a best of 7 series (yes, there’s a reason today’s graphic is sporting Bruins’ black and gold). Leo and Randy discuss the importance of trust and preparation in stepping up.

Some useful links for information mentioned in today’s discussion:

On Showing Up

We’re about to enter round 3 of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Leo’s Boston Bruins have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. Randy’s Dallas Stars are fighting to stay alive in game 7 with the St. Louis Blues to advance to the Western Conference Finals. (A fitting gift as we celebrate Randy’s birthday!) We’re hoping for a Boston vs. Dallas Stanley Cup match-up!

Today, Leo Bottary and Randy Cantrell discuss the first of the three elements necessary for effective group/team performance:

  1. Show Up
  2. Step Up
  3. Follow Up

Serving Emerging Leaders

What’s are today’s emerging leaders to do?  Who do they learn from and how will they prepare themselves to lead their organizations in the coming years.  Leo and Randy talk about what serving our next generation of leaders will entail.

The Gift Of Feedback

When you receive feedback (positive or negative), see it as the gift that it is. Use it as fuel for reflection and continuous improvement.  Anyone who is great at anything is a product of people who were generous enough to provide them feedback along their learning journey.  We believed the message to be so important, we’re posting it a day early!  Enjoy!
