We at PeerSpectives Consulting enjoy looking at different perspectives. Here is an article on how African-American leaders prosper and achieve incredible success in situations where they feel underestimated, under-appreciated and under-resourced.
Laura Roberts from University of Virginia, and Thomas Murphy from Harvard Business School have shared how these leaders practice self-affirmation to affirm their potential.
Here are examples of affirmations from their work.
In early stage of my career, I envision myself becoming a leader.
– I build a robust sense of self that strengthens me.
– I embrace my unique strengths and cultural resources. I bring new perspectives and ideas that have value and are specific to my experience.
In the middle stage of my career, I am positioned to grow into greater leadership roles.
– I recognize that as my core strengths and talents increase, I can be a stronger contributor in my organization. I draw on these attributes to position myself for increased responsibility and greater visibility and impact.
What stands out for us ? Being clear of your core strengths and talents helps you ground in your personal sense of value. This is a foundation for becoming the leader you are meant to be.
We want everyone to understand their value. Its our passion.
