Resources to Expand your Leadership Development (What does ChatGPT say?)

Resources to Expand your Leadership Development (What does ChatGPT say?)

While working on my leadership development  article series on Sisu Courage, I take a break to get some fresh insights from the outdoors! Sure enough, I got an ah-ha…

I wonder what ChatGPT thinks about leadership + courage. So, I use this ChatGPT prompt –What might a leader do to become more courageous?

Here’s ChatGPT’s answer:

    • Be open to learning and growth: Leaders should be open to learning new skills and exploring different avenues for growth.
    • Acknowledge fear: Leaders should acknowledge their fears and recognize that everyone experiences fear from time to time.
    • Set goals: Courageous leaders set meaningful goals and strive to achieve them.
    • Take calculated risks: Leaders should be willing to take risks and make decisions based on evidence and careful consideration.
    • Lead by example: Courageous leaders set an example by taking action and leading from the front.
    • Celebrate success: Leaders should celebrate the successes of their team, as well as their own.
    • Show empathy: Courageous leaders show compassion and empathy towards their team members.
    • Persevere: Leaders should never give up and remain resilient despite challenges and setbacks.

What do you think of the answer?

What did ChatGPT get right?

What did it miss?

As part of the Sisu Courage Series, I share many links to articles, eBooks, and extracts from other books that I’ve written.

Below, I’ve compiled a list of these additional free resources, so that you can access them in a flash.

Expand Your Leadership Influence with Clarity on your Vision, Values, and Virtues

Many leaders tell me that they feel like they’ve been slammed to their knees, the wind has been knocked out of them, and they’ve been shaken to their core. When the terrain is quickly changing and you feel out of breath, you need renewed clarity on your vision, values, and virtues. The E-book, 3 Strategies to Expand your Leadership Influence – The Personal Vision, Values, and Virtues eBook might be a good place to start. You can get it here.  

Take the D.A.K.O.T.A. Survey to Strengthen your Leadership Oxygen Capacity

In Millennials Matter, I use the acronym D.A.K.O.T.A. to define the character traits I associate with solid virtues.  This acronym is based upon my appreciation for my North Dakota roots. I invite you to work through the D.A.K.O.T.A. survey. It’s a helpful tool to discern where you and/or your team stands on the critical character traits you need to strengthen your Leadership Oxygen capacity. 

Make the Domino Difference (TEDx Talk)

In my TEDx talk, I talk about the power of the Domino. A YouTube video, “Domino Chain Reac­tion, has more than two million views. You can check it out here.  Here’s what I say: Did you know that a domino can knock over another domino 1 1/2 times its size? So, in only 29 moves, a domino that’s 5mm high – not professional size, not tournament size, but a micro size – can eventually knock down a domino the size of the Empire State Building! Learn about the 5 mm micro moves that you can make so that your leadership influence continues to expand.

Find a Trusted Guide to Get Your Leadership Performance Back on Track

If you’re like most leaders, there are myriad circumstances that cause you to trip. That’s when you might come to the realization that you’re off-track. In situations like these, it’s time to re-evaluate what’s in your Leadership Toolkit. Working with a guide or a coach might be needed to get your leadership performance back on track.
