I need more Pelican Leadership in my life. It hit me like...well...a diving pelican that I need to shape some of my action much like they were taking care of their business. Here are my takeaways:
1. No matter who or what is around you.....be you.
I have never seen a pelican riled up...by anything. I have watched them work alone, in pairs, in packs, surrounded by other birds, following fishing boats, and diving in the same area as dolphins. Their actions are the same, and thus their results are too.
2. Observe before you act.
Soaring high or gliding as close to the ocean as possible, pelicans take careful process to take in the situation before acting. The work they do in observing allows them to.....
3. GO FOR IT!!
The dive. Calculated. Committed. Consistent. I could watch the dive all day long (maybe that is weird....but I have to be me). There is no turning back for the pelican once they have made the decision to go for it. They are ALL IN!!
The pelican has reminded me to be true to my leadership values, watch and listen to the environment around me, and once I am ready, GO FOR IT..committed to the success I have created for myself.
Thanks for stopping by. These are my musings on a number of leadership thoughts. It is my joy to expound upon my experiences and values.
