Two great synchronicities have happened in the past week: I refined my niche of life and leadership coaching for introverts, and a drama played out on the world stage with Gordon Brown, introvert.
Those two things combined connected me with a reporter who writes for The Coaching Commons. He asked me to provide thoughts for an article, which I did. I’m pleased to share the resulting story here, written by Mark Joyella: http://coachingcommons.org/featured/gordon-brown-and-leadership-coaching-the-introverted-politician/
Since the article was posted, Gordon Brown announced that he is resigning his position. He has a few months left in office, which gives him some time to shape his legacy. I think of something I learned as a musician: if you start and end strong, what happens in the middle is less important. That advice is artistically – and politically – not the best case scenario. However, it’s reminiscent of one of my favorite quotes: “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” (Anonymous)
