Create a leadership "go-bag" that allows you to have the level of impact you crave while also having the life you desire. A leadership go-bag that allows you to choose your leadership over and over again.
Choosing your leadership is about remembering who you are, creating your own definition of leadership, and having the courage to lead from that place.
Leadership creates superhero type change in the world and in your life but it doesn’t mean superhuman. If that feels like a giant relief, good.
BECAUSE SOMETIMES LEADERSHIP SUCKS.
Or rather, sometimes it feels that way.
People don’t always like or understand you (that hurts).
You question and doubt yourself (when will it ever be enough).
You often feel solely responsible for things to work out (hello stress and burden).
You are surrounded by people and yet you can feel alone (Cue the song “all by myself.”).
Leading often feels at the expense of your own life (just one more email and then I’ll close the laptop).
And it can feel impossible to keep up with your own expectations of yourself (your ol’ friend inner critic).
My job is actually to support you in expanding your leadership while decreasing what feels soul-sucking!
BECAUSE LEADERSHIP IS ALSO A WAY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE WORLD AND YOUR LIFE IN A PROFOUND WAY.
That joy you feel when you are lit up by having a positive impact on another. That fire you have to create change in your life, work, and world. That moment when your courage to lead results in that cause, business, relationship to hit a huge goal. When someone says to you, “thank you for everything you are doing, it has made a huge difference”.
So while at times choosing your leadership may be challenging it can also be the most rewarding gift you give to yourself, the people around you, and the world.
YOUR LEADERSHIP MATTERS.
You have a way of seeing things that only you can. You have a way of communicating things that only you can. You have background, education, training, life experience, wins/losses, that only you have.
All of this means that your leadership is going to be unlike anyone else’s. Which means you can contribute to the world in a way that only you can.
Claiming the power and impact your leadership has is a game changer. And continuously cultivating it, well, mind-blown.
Choose humanity over perfection. Choose resilience over resignation. Choose creativity over clinging to an exact plan. Choose being bold over being liked. Choose courage over comfort. Choose your gifts over comparison. Choose to be ‘too much’ over making yourself smaller. Choose unreasonable over practical.
… CHOOSE YOUR LEADERSHIP
That kind of leadership could change your life. Your work. And the world.
Hi there, I'm Sarah Schneider, leadership coach and trainer. My job is to support leaders in having the impact, life, and change they want, while navigating the challenges that come with being a high-performing, high-impact leader.
I’ve been developing leaders from emerging to C-Suite for over 15 years. I believe that leadership is an evolution not a place you arrive to. The individuals and organizations I work with are committed to doing the most good they can with the power they have while also having their life work for them.
