I. Power Of Our Voices
5 ways to activate our leadership voice:
Vulnerability ― Go first. What truths haven't you shared?
Orientation ― Zoom out. What context is helpful to name?
Inquiry ― Turn to wonder. What are you curious about?
Clarity ― Sharpen understanding. What's the bottom line here?
Empathy ― Feel others. What if you stand in their shoes?

II. Don’t Let Criticism Destroy Your Dreams
One day Albert Einstein wrote on the blackboard:
9 x 1 = 9, 9 x 2 = 18, 9 x 3 = 27, 9 x 4 = 36, 9 x 5 = 45
9 x 6 = 54, 9 x 7 = 63, 9 x 8 = 72, 9 x 9 = 81, 9x10 = 91
Suddenly, chaos erupted in the classroom because Einstein made a mistake.
Obviously, the correct answer to 9 x 10 isn't 91. And all his students ridiculed him.
Einstein waited for everyone to be silent and said: “Despite the fact that I analyzed nine problems correctly, no one congratulated me. But when I made one mistake, everyone started laughing. This means that even if a person is successful, society will notice his slightest mistake.
So, don't let criticism destroy your dreams. The only person who never makes a mistake is someone who does nothing.”
III. Learning From Hardship
4 powerful lessons we gradually learn the hard way:
In life, goodbyes can be a gift.
What you focus on grows. Stop micromanaging your time and start better managing your focus, so you can move forward.
Realize that life is simply a collection of little chances for happiness, each lived one moment at a time.
Patience is not about waiting, it is the ability to maintain a positive outlook while working diligently for what you believe in, step by step.

The Last Words…
“The phrase ‘this too shall pass’ is so perfect for anything. It’s not dwelling on the negative, it’s finding a way to control whatever you can control to change the situation that you’re in.”
