In his book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John C. Maxwell, Leadership Guru of the world speaks about the Law of Connection.  Connection is NOT easy because people are diverse and there is no cookie cutter method to connect with those around you.  Maxwell advises that leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand.  When you think about that statement, how does it resonate with you?  Has this been your experience?  How many of your leaders touched your heart before they asked for your hand?  Or when have you as a leader, connected with those you lead by touching their hearts before asking for their hand?

As a young girl, I used to enjoy sitting outside at night gazing at the stars.  I was so fascinated by their brilliance.  As I watched the stars, I would often dream about whom I wanted to be and what I wanted to do when I grew up.  As a child, did you ever daydream about what your future life would be like?  Did you ever get lost in thoughts of how you would accomplish your dreams and live a successful and abundant life?  I am sure at some point we all had visions and perhaps still have visions of what our future would be like.

On Saturday past, a member of my team and I were having a conversation.  During the conversation, he asked if I could help him to be as strategic as I am particularly in the area of selecting his inner circle.  The question took me by surprise.  It’s not that I am not strategic, it’s that I really didn’t think anyone took note of it.  His emphasis on cleaning up his inner circle also took me by surprise.  As we spoke and as I listened to him share how his inner circle impacts him, I realized he never really gave thought to that fact that his inner circle should include people with goals to achieve, dreams to accomplish and people who will force him to stay on top of his game.
