"Leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders." -Tom Peters
Today I created more leaders and I and breathing deeply. For 2 years I have built up iCoach Network, I've posted there every day, I've ready EVERY SINGLE COMMENT, I've approved and welcomed each of the 1,058 members.
But I knew changes needed to be made and that perhaps I wasn't the right person to change things up. It wasn't broken, it just didn't feel in full alignment with who I am today vs. 2 years ago.
So I invited in 3 new administrators... ones I love and respect, ones who 'get' where I want to take it and will exceed that with their powerful awesomeness.
There's a part of me that feels so relieved to be sharing the responsibility and the stage. I'm excited to see what they will bring to the table. I'm excited to mentor them behind the scenes to communicate more powerfully and lead with their hearts and stand strong in the face of whatever comes up.
And there's a part of me that is discombobulated by the change - how will the routine of my morning look now? How will I show up knowing there are others I want to nurture and guide and share the community with, MY community. There's the joy of sharing and there's the worry that they'll not play with my toy properly.
But that's the point right? I want them to mess up my toy and play with it differently and find new ways that my imagination didn't think of. We're starting a new grand experiment... and at the end of the day, it feels more fun than scary.
Just gotta breathe and congratulate myself for coming this far with my own feet, and sit back for a little while and watch the magic happen...
