What’s in the heart of your 5-year-old self?

‘Croc hunting might be something you carry in your heart when you’re five,’ wrote my friend in her message. She’d just been to Australia Zoo, the creation of the late Steve Irwin, Crocodile Hunter, with her husband and children.

The Leaders Conundrum

We expect a lot from those in leadership positions. They should be competent, inspirational and never make a mistake. However, spend a few moments seeing the world from their perspective, and you might not be so quick to judge next time. Many people aspire to a position of leadership. Even more look at those in leadership positions and think they could do better. How you see something depends upon your perspective. Try walking down the same street, but on the opposite side.
