Why are you taking Leadership for Change?

I attended the Women's Leadership Symposium last summer and Dr. Rock gave a very candid talk about her journey from childhood to adulthood. She talked about gifts/talents, passions, plans and the support you need to reach success and I wanted to learn more. I appreciated the fact that she kept it very real (ups and downs). Change is difficult even painful at times but I am ready to be a proactive leader that brings change in my own life while at the same time being and example to others.

I am taking this class because I am at a crossroads in my life. The current career path I am on is not bringing me much personal happiness. I took my first graduate level course last semester and even though I felt good about my performance, I felt drained, unbalanced and LOST by the end of it. I did not have the same energy or oomph I did when I started school in the fall of 2008 to take another class in my field. My soul is a bit restless.

  1. Hey Idalia,

    I really hope things change for you this semester with the field that you are currently studying. I actually had to change my choice of careers a couple of time until I personally realized how to access my talents and use them for the common good. I think each person was given a special talent to not only make money from it but to also enjoy using it and help others with it as well.

    Very interesting and "raw" blog.
    Thanks for sharing.
