Shot 31: THRIVAL TRAINING

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 1 year ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­

DID I SAY SURVIVAL TRAINING?  Nope.  Thrival.  Some rifles get involved in survival training.  If I had my way, we’d be engaged in thirval training.  Oh, yes, I made up that word, but think about it…

A survival mentality can drag a leader down, down, down.  It’s tough struggling every day to just make it.  Creativity wanes.  And meaning is reduced to getting by.  Even if you get out of survival mode, you run the danger of having a scarcity mentality—hoard, worry, withdraw, save, cut.  Thriving yields an abundance mentality—share, joy, promote, invest, expand.  In what aspects of your leadership can you thrive?  In your business?  In your department?  In your goals?  In your meetings?  Etc.  Etc.  Thriving enlivens you and others around you.  Practice thriving.  You know:  thrival training.
