Tell It…

One of my clients was reluctant to share the details of the childhood trauma that stunted her personal and professional growth in a speech.

So I reminded her that her truth could be inspirational to an audience … and that it’s only in the telling that a test can become a testimony.

“Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate. For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life.” James 1:12 MSG

Inhale Test, Exhale Stuck…
Inhale Truth, Exhale Shame…
Inhale Testimony, Exhale Silence…

Crucial Crucible

Every leader has experiences, often traumatic, that test who they are and sometimes transform who they are. Leadership guru Warren Bennis calls these moments “crucibles” and they require leaders to “examine their values, question their assumptions, hone their judgment.

As much as the descendants of the sons and daughters of the confederacy would like to view Robert E. Lee as a hero, in his crucible moment, he choose …despite some misgivings… to lead the effort to secede from the United States for the purpose of keeping a people enslaved.

That does not make him a hero….

Some crucible experiences illuminate a hidden and suppressed area of the soul.” ~ Warren Bennis
