If a book was written with all the stories about the hard work and dedication our healthcare workers and leaders have put in over the last couple of months, it would be over 1,000 pages. Here’s to all the heroic healthcare workers who give their all every day to keep us safe and all the people who support them. Their bravery and commitment to caring for our sick country deserves a round of applause. God bless each and every one of you.

While watching the various stories about Kobe Bryant’s life, I realized that he was the prototypical athlete that the professional leadership development process (PLP) was based on. The PLP is based on how professional and Olympic athletes who, no matter how good they are, continue to work at their craft to continue improving. These athletes start with a high level of skills or abilities, but it’s their drive and determination that sets them apart from the rest. Kobe didn’t have to take 1,000 shots a day. He could have had a long, financially rewarding career just being an good NBA player, but that’s not what he wanted. He wanted to be the best, so that meant continuing to work as his game and keep improving throughout his career.

Discovering Your Leadership Superpowers and ‘Origin Story’ on the Journey to Becoming an Effective Leader
- Leaders should be on a continuous journey to discover their leadership superpowers.
- The author’s research has identified 12 leadership superpowers, with effective leaders generally mastering at least two and knowing how to tap into many others.
- Leaders also should be aware of their “origin story,” which sets the tone for how they will lead.
Superhero movies capture our imaginations and entertain us with ever-improving special effects and the age-old story of good versus evil. One of the most interesting components is the origin story, wherein heroes discover their superpowers and learn how to master or control them.
