Why you need to be a dreamcatcher

Keynote Speaker, AmyK offers encouragement to take a moment this week to reflect on your own dreams and the dreams of the people you serve.Yesterday, a client gifted me with a copy of the children’s book, Grandmother’s Dreamcatcher, and included my very own dreamcatcher.

A dreamcatcher, originally made by Native Americans, is believed to give its owner good, sweet dreams.

They also shared their corporate values, which are guided by the traditional Ojibwe teachings: humility, love and respect to name a few.

This client reminds us as leaders that we must catch the dreams of our team members, our customers and ourselves. And to do so in a way that reflects our values.

We are here to serve, to make significant contributions in helping our people’s dreams come true and to live a life filled with meaning.

Take a moment this week to reflect on your own dreams and the dreams of the people you serve.

  • Why are you a leader?
  • What gift are you here on earth to share?
  • What impact are you making? How might your impact be even bigger?
  • What are the dreams of your team members? How might you do a better job of catching them and helping them come true?
  • What are the dreams of your clients and customers? How might you do a better job of catching them and helping them come to fruition?

Reality check:

It’s going to be tempting to blow off this email. “Too woowoo,” you’ll say.

So imagine having a direct report that knows you care about his or her dreams, ambitions and aspirations.

Imagine having a client say, “You get me. You really do.”

Imagine living a life where the people around you believe in their heart of hearts that you actually care.

Answering the questions above… it’s a conversation worth having.

Hugs,

AmyK
