Here’s something different! It’s Dolph Lundgren’s 14-minute TEDx Talk. As a leader your inner work matters to you, and all who depend upon you, as well!
I got to support Dolph in creating and delivering this talk. I thought he was pretty cool before, but I had no idea about his real-life hero’s journey. His talk is very inspiring and points to the inner work that is so important to a fulfilled life.
This is what he said about the experience back when the talk hit about 1 million views (it’s at nearly 3 million now): “The other week an LAPD Officer came up to me, shook my hand and said: ‘I like your movies, but I loved your TED Talk more.’ There was a soft glint in his eye that revealed an upbringing not very different than my own. I learned so much working with John and anytime I face a challenging speaking situation I certainly know whom to call.” – Dolph Lundgren, Actor in Aquaman, the Expendables, Rocky IV and who works to empower youth globally, with https://mentorfoundationusa.org/about-us/ambassadors/dolph-lundgren/
As you watch his talk, imagine what it took for him to share his story. And then, think about the difference it made – to the LAPD Officer, to the millions of others who’ve watched and to the people he’s helping new. Dolph’s talk is a true example of leadership – self-awareness, healing and generosity of spirit. I’d love to know what you think.
