The word power carries a lot of weight, and we have the power to be intentional and proactive with our lives. Wendy Leshgold joins Kevin to discuss how to move toward the life you want professionally and personally. She shares five power principles which include, declaring a vision, choosing a new perspective, planning the work and working the plan, using the language of action, and getting curious. It is important to share a bold vision with others, despite it being somewhat scary and vulnerable. This builds relationships, encourages others to support us, and holds us accountable. We need to recognize we may fail and that is OK.
