The truest validation of confidence is when you take action simply because you know it is the right thing to do.
The CEO and his five VPs are a great team. The VPs have solid, trusting leadership in their CEO. The CEO has diligently created a great team of VPs. The reality is they would have been fine without me.
The CEO liked what I had to offer in my work. He seemed confidently clear that it was the right thing to do to work with me. It was my privilege to begin this relationship. It seems the CEO knew precisely what each individual VP needed and would receive.
His confidence furthered resolve in my approach while giving me complete confidence in the flow of our mutual work. As each participant learned more about their own uniqueness – through values, purpose, and voice – the sessions together became a swirl of meaningful dialogue where each individual found true validation and confidence in uniqueness and authenticity.
It didn’t hurt one bit to get a bit of validation for myself; and to be reminded I am doing what’s right.
