How To Become More Inclusive And Less Self-compromised

The old advice is still true, even if the new generations is changing it. Here’s the lesson to take away: we all have a role to play—whether it’s helping people as a human resource, as a teammate, as a volunteer, or as a leader. When we recognize the unique abilities that each person brings to the table, we can learn to support and encourage each other equally and we can do more to keep each other honest. If we focus on being true to ourselves and to our strengths, then we’ll find more support for our ambitions.

The role that I find myself in is one that I love.

It’s an exciting job, one which I’m always learning, but one which has given me the experience and confidence in the work I do to be me as much as I can be in these strange, unexpected times. I am learning all the time. Being a leader—especially in the public eye—is a huge responsibility, but also an amazing experience with a lot of responsibility. No one gets there alone.

You’re either a leader, or you aren’t!

Being a teacher and guiding people is the most challenging and rewarding experience in my life. I’ve found that most of the work that I do, I’m teaching myself. Learning can feel solitary, even if the focus of the learning is on someone else: at work, with a class, or with friends. The only way to be sure you’re learning the subject is to learn it every day. The only way to keep learning is to do it all! No one gets there alone.

Learning is an activity, it’s a practice. It helps with learning, so why not embrace the process?

How I use social media

Social media is a really great tool for connecting with a community, but at the same time, there’s a certain stigma associated with it. Sometimes you feel like you have to answer questions and prove your authenticity with Facebook.

Sometimes things like an online community or a video game can help us feel connected to someone, to help us build relationships and give our hearts a sense of peace and meaning. While using social media gives us the means to communicate with others, it has to be done with great awareness and respect so we don’t overstep our bounds and hurt the people that we seek to be part of.

How I use writing in my everyday life, both online and in my day-to-day life outside of work:

When I write, I’m making a connection with words, with people, and with nature. I’m building a relationship with this paper. With the paper. With my characters. I love writing and I feel that if I’m not creating, then I’m missing out on something amazing and rewarding.

I like reading, too. I enjoy reading fiction and nonfiction as well as writing fiction. It’s fun to mix the two styles and try to find something that interests you.

What I’ve learned about leadership in the last year or so

It can be difficult to lead a successful team.
