I stumbled upon a speech by Rosabeth Moss Kanter during my end of year retreat, and the below words from her speech will be my theme for 2022.
“Show up, Speak up, Look up, Team up, Never give up, Lift others up.”
Show up – I will take on stretch projects with courage.
Speak up – I will speak my truth, even in uncomfortable spaces.
Look up – I will live up to my values.
Team up – I will find the others, already on the path.
Never give up – I will persist in spite of the occasional drag.
Lift others up – I will take care of those in my care.
Let’s go there.
