A Team’s Past: is it burdensome baggage or a ticket to travel?

If you’re the new leader of a team “with a history” (or if you’ve been leading such a team since it formed), the question is: Is the team’s past “burdensome baggage” or a “ticket to travel”?

My good friend and colleague John Schuster has just released a new book called The Power of Your Past: The Art of Recalling, Reclaiming, and Recasting. In this profound new book, John systematically demonstrates that our pasts are our greatest and most accessible resource for making powerful changes in every area of our lives. Illuminating how creative reflection on our personal histories is a crucial key to forging a positive future, John has provided all of us with a guidebook that is much needed in the world today.

Although John’s book is written to help individuals reframe their lives, I believe it can help leader’s reframe their teams. In effect, a team’s past does not have to be a burden. The team’s past can be a ticket to a productive present and a stimulating future.

In celebration of the release of The Power of Your Past, John will be leading a complimentary teleseminar on Thursday, April 21st at 5:30 PM Pacific time (8:30 PM Eastern). Whether your top priorities right now are personal or professional in nature, join John for what will be a thought-provoking and inspiring conversation.

Special Note: If you buy the book today, all the proceeds go to Whole Child International. To sign up for the free teleseminar and to learn more about John Schuster and Whole Child International, simply click right here.
