As part of training programs that I’ve done, one of the modules that I used was by DDI (Development Dimensions International) and it focused on the leader as a “catalyst.” Their definition of catalyst is “something that sparks an action.”
By reading the quotes and/or stories that I share with you, I hope to “spark” some action on your part after reading the quote and reflecting on what you are doing or thinking about at the present time. Will the quote or story spark some kind of action on your part to do something different? Hopefully, what you do will bring about some positive action and create a better environment for you and those around you.
We all should understand that each and every action that we do sends out ‘ripple effects’ on everyone around us. Whether it is something we say or our body language, those around us will react and the ripple effects continue. Be aware of what you say and what you do. It is difficult at times but remember, you create your own environment. How you react to things around you will determine what kind of reaction you will have. Will it be positive or negative?
Now, as Peter Drucker said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” So, “let’s go make a dent in the universe.” (Steve Jobs)
Be a Catalyst!
