Towards the end of a Dance Floor Theory Orientation Keytalk, I introduce the students to one of our Swift Kick core values which is, “Feed Your Butterflies.” I challenge the students to come up with one butterfly they are going to feed as they start their college career. Then I invite them share with the group.
The student pictured above, from NYIT, stood up and said he has a lot of anxiety around being in front of crowds. So I naturally invited him on stage to take this selfie with me :-).
As I continue to elevate myself to higher levels of success, I love nothing more than to share my “stage” with those around me so we can all reach the top together. Bringing him on stage was a small action on my part, but could be a big moment for him.
Everyone in leadership positions should share their stage more often and help elevate those around them to higher levels of success. Do you live in a world of scarcity or abundance? The perspective makes all the difference.
