LDRS 420 Assignment â€“ Lifeâ€™s Critical Events Paper
Barth (as cited in George, Sims, McLean, & Mayer (2007) wrote, â€œThe story of
your life is not your life. It is your story â€¦ many leaders reported that their motivation came from a difficult experience in their livesâ€ (p.2). It is through these transformative experiences (events) that authentic leaders give meaning to their lives, and they reframe these events, rise above the challenges, and discover their passion to lead. We, too, are shaped by our lifeâ€™s events.
