First, you need to clarify the why behind your desire to reinvent yourself? Here are 3 reasons you may be ready:
1. You are in the wrong leadership seat.
You know it. The seat you are in now doesn’t fit and the energy it requires is exhausting. Pride or the fear of failure has kept you from making a move but you are finally ready. You have the courage to change, to move to the right leadership role that matches your gifts and your sense of calling or purpose.
2. You have been a toxic leader.
You are ready to own the unhealthy leadership patterns you have used. You are ready to ask your team to forgive you and to start over. This is the hardest because trust and credibility will have to be reestablished but you are committed to the hard work and time it will take to be a healthy leader.
3. You want a new career path.
You are ready to go back to school, to be trained in a new field, to take on a completely different path of leadership. It may have been a dream you had earlier in life that you put off because of life circumstances but now is the time to fulfill that dream. It may be that the job market has changed and the leadership role you are in currently is no longer in demand. You are ready to learn something new.
As you consider reinventing yourself, I challenge you to include your family, a close friend, and a leadership mentor. You need the support, help, and prayers of others as you step into something new. You need people around you who will encourage and challenge you to stay the course. It takes courage and commitment to reinvent yourself but the change will be worth the effort as you step up and step into the right place of leadership.
Ultimately, the best way to reinvent yourself is from the inside out and it is the work of God in your life. Spiritual transformation, dying to self and becoming more like Christ, is the call for all leaders of faith.The best way to reinvent yourself is from the inside out and it is the work of God in your life.
