Values- how you act when no-one is looking

Three reflective moments I had watching this video

1. This was refreshing: 

The manner in which we conduct ourselves speaks volumes about our character and values. In a world surrounded by security cameras catching every wrong move, I love this refreshing compilation of everything that is GOOD in people, caught on camera. Making an IMPACT happens in the smallest ways, with the tiniest actions.

It seems in every speaking engagement I do lately, every facilitated training session, the message of personal leadership and values- how we conduct ourselves when no-one is looking.. weaves its way into the conversation.

Whether we are learning to lead better or live better, it comes down to how we ACT. 

2. This was unexpected:

It also strikes me watching this that it’s not what you expect. We are surprised and delighted to see people doing these small kindnesses- because it’s outside of the norm. That part makes me a little bit sad. Tell me what you think after watching the video here!

3. Each of these moments captured was part of an unfolding story: 

I am fascinated by the stories BEHIND & AROUND situations. The couple kissing in the elevator; The swordfighting couple in the square. Authentic Humanity at its best – and when we consider each of those stories- we start appreciating how much of an interconnected eco-system we live in.  Tell me what you think after watching the video above!
