How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

“Each week, the #LeadFromWithin community really re-centers me in the soul of leadership. Getting worn out is easy to let happen, especially with the daily challenges and mazes to navigate successfully. The #LeadFromWithin community inspires and refreshes me to the importance of always leading with purpose and human connection.”

I really appreciate all you do and the leaders you inspire. You really have created something special and I know it takes a lot of effort. Thank you for your leadership.

Let me know if this works and how I can help.

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

As a leadership training consultant for over 20 years, I love connecting with others and empowering them to feel they have control in both their professional and personal lives.

#Leadfromwithin is a community that always supported my learning about a more compassionate leadership model within a business setting. The community is extraordinary in making everyone feel worthy and valued.

When you found me Lolly, you gave me a gift of understanding my leadership story and introducing me to the crazy world of social media. You cared what I had to share. You helped me fine tune my business and personal brand. You just empowered me to be authentic and lead with my core values guiding me. I love you for that.

With gratitude,

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

When I knew that my family and I were going to be moving overseas, I stopped working with my USA clients since I did not know how long it would take me to get up and running in Australia.  The transition took many months and while my heart was missing my clients I found a place of shared passion, connection and thought provoking discussion in the Lead from Within community.  Lead from Within kept me connected to my personal purpose and passion and kept my fire for leadership development alive during that time.  

What I love about Lead from Within, and I think sets it apart, is the focus on going beyond the surface of leadership – right to the heart.  The vibrant community truly has become  a place to share, reflect, engage and play with friends.  I look forward to each week as I not only learn from so many others but through my reflection and responses I also learn about myself.- Alli Pollin

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

Something truly magical has been happening in the #leadfromwithin chat on Tuesday evenings. I started attending this chat regularly about 2 years ago and the change has blown me away. Lolly’s questions have become deeper and it has encouraged everyone to reach within and answer from the heart. It is an amazing opportunity on Twitter to see people letting down their walls and speak truthfully, genuinely and with passion about various topics of leadership. Ultimately, everyone is growing, no matter what their background or work, because the energy is one of love, community and coming together to help each other grow. I am so grateful to Lolly Daskal, who tirelessly puts out tremendous questions for us to ponder and share heartfelt answers to every week and I try never to miss it!”

Thank you Lolly

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

I enjoy learning with the #leadfromwithin community because it includes interesting people from many different disciplines who all share my passion for good leadership. This inspiring group believes that “good leadership” includes respect and care for others and taking responsibility for thinking beyond ourselves. I am leading a global movement to bring out the best in people and organizations through proactive ethical leadership – I enjoy the #leadfromwithin discussions on Tuesday nights about how to bring out the best in ourselves so that we can bring out the best in others.–

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?
#leadfromwithin offers a place to learn, share and grow personally each week and everyday. It is inclusive not exclusive, and it is powered on compassion. To be able to plug into this each week, be it for an hour, is empowering and invigorating. It creates an impact of the heart and mind and for me it offers an hour of being in the flow of life.
Why am I passionate about attending the community each week ?#leadfromwithin offers connection to people that care, that lead from the heart, that believe in the power of  the sharing of compassion and heart. If you are not passionate about the things you love then you are missing the point of life and the meaning of humanity.We are all connected, but when we actually connect on the same wavelength it is a beautiful experience. I advocate #leadfromwithin chats to all I meet, for it is advocating compassion and love. For me I would love to see and be a part of #leadfromwithin on even larger platforms. Truly you should do a TED chat, truly I think that the world is ready to open this window that #leadfromwithin brings.Don’t stop doing what you are doing, it is way bigger that you could possible imagine.Love you,

How has #leadfromwithin Impacted your life and leadership?

I consider it to be one of my cyber family/networking/support/church/sangha ‘typish’ groups.  Naturally, since it’s on the internet, it still lacks true depth and intimacy yet that isn’t really a problem since the nature of it all affords the OPPORTUNITY for anyone who participates to develop stronger and deeper relationships with people over time (if so desired etc).  
The other reason I was initially drawn to leadfromwithin is also due to the fact that it resonated with my heart in terms of past experience, present place, and more accurately reflected my personal feelings when it comes to leadership itself.  For me, it has generally been more about leading ourselves FIRST and this naturally tends to impact those around us. Less so when it comes to focus on leadership as a business/executive coach since my gifts dominate elsewhere.  More on the individual life challenges etc.  regardless of whether that is as a leadership in business.  

I haven’t attended a church for nearly a decade now (being spiritual and not religious and going through the divorcing dogma phase of my life) so the LACK of tribe/familial support has had the biggest impact on myself and my children since my husband passed away.  So feeling a sense of belonging and connection with a similarly like-minded/hearted group of people is actually critical for me based on my current needs/values.  
None of us can fully heal ALONE.  I have yet to meet or know anyone who could do it all themselves no matter how independent and self aware they were/are.  

I love the topics.  I love to be able to learn from others and share my own knowledge and experience at the same time.  Although the hour flies by quickly and we cover quite a bit of ground in such a short period of time, it still acts as a seed that people can use to continue to develop and cultivate in their own life….if they so choose or desire to do so.  
Actually, this is one of the reasons why I have TRIED to limit the # of Twitter chats I participate in each week.  As someone who used to devour books constantly, I’ve learned that it’s pointless to do just fill our heads with knowledge if we don’t try to apply it.  So I’ve intentionally slowed down when it comes to reading books so I create enough time to internalize and apply what I read (or simply to test the theory for myself) And it is the same with Twitter chats.  
The MORE Twitter chats I participate in each week, the LESS I’m able to intentionally apply new knowledge to my life due to info overload.  By sticking with one or two chats per week (I’m now involved in 3/week) the easier it is for me to spend time reflecting on the topic beyond the hour and the more likely I can find something to apply to my life.

How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?
LeadFromWithin is my community, my family of leaders.

I spend an hour each Tuesday with some of the most inspiring people I know. We talk and listen, trading insightful words and deep truths, trusting each other while sharing our deepest selves.

I have met some of my best friends, and done some of my best thinking, through LeadFromWithin.

There is so much more!

Thank you,

Greg Richardson @Strategicmonk


How has #Leadfromwithin impacted your life and leadership?

#leadfromwithing has impacted my life is such a positive way. I stumbled upon you and the #leadfromwithin community sometime in May/June of this year. It was an answer to my prayers and struggles that I was going through at work. At the time, I was working for an organization which I loved – loved their mission and what they were trying to do in the community but I worked in a toxic environment.

My position required me to me in contact with the higher levels of the organization. They are managers – not leaders and treated me very poorly. I was yelled, told I could not do my job. Treated with dis-respect. I was trying to get a promotion at the time. A Senior Manager had left – had been approximately 5 months I was stepping up trying to fill the void as an HR Manager. I was trying to prove my “worth.”

I was told that I couldn’t do the position since I did not have a degree in HR. So what did I do – went back to school to get one. Then I was told that just because I was taking courses in HR – that didn’t mean I “knew” HR (despite have previous experience).

You know it is bad when you get a performance review and you are told that you are too passionate, too enthusiastic about your work and you need to stay in your box. I have always considered myself a strong and resilient person, but this atmosphere was starting to take its toll.

I was starting to feel ‘beat down’ and fed up. I wanted to give up. I turned to Social Media and looked at how I could get involved, build my brand and share me knowledge and learn from others. I stumbled upon twitter chats – one of which was #leadfromwithin. I still remember the feeling after my first #leadfromwithin chat. I was taken aback by the love, acceptance, passion and inspiration of everyone participating. I left the chat feeling invigorated and renewed.

I felt ready to face work and the negativity that I was enduring everyday. I started coming back week after week. #leadfromwithin provided a reserve to my resilience and ability to cope at work. I started looking at my problems differently.

An HR consultant that I was working with at the time commented that she could not believe how I handled things with such grace and resilience. I owe that to #leadfromwithin as it helped my to discover my inner strengths and leading from the heart which I think I had forgotten about for a while. Since participating in the #leadfromwithin chats I have switched jobs as well. Made a leap of faith (even though it is not a permanent position) and I am now working at a place where they appreciate my talents, my passion and enthusiasm. It’s great.
