In just the last 20 years, the way we communicate and the tools we have to drive change have leveled the playing field in many ways. All it takes is one person to build a clear message and begin to see a ripple effect across the internet.
Sometimes, that “digital ripple” crosses over into reality. When we look at the Oscars this past Sunday, there were a few moments where opportunities were created to build a reputation proactively and intentionally.
1. Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar after six nominations.What we can learn from Leonardo DiCaprio is the art of consistency. He has delivered impactful movies for over 20 years, which is hard to imagine since he is only 41. However, when we think about the work we do and how we deliver, are we grateful when we hit hard times, do we persevere even though we are not recognized for everything?
When it is time to give a speech, are you ready and do you recognize the people throughout your life as perfectly as Leo did that night? He clearly prepared his thank you list as well as his call to action. He wants people to think about climate change and get involved. He leveraged this opportunity to deliver more than just one message.
Question: What message would you deliver? What change do you wish to be in the world?
