|STARs See What is Needed|
| In last month's newsletter, we talked about the
attributes of a STAR. We define a STAR as someone who shines
brilliantly in their field of endeavour. They are people who
perform a skill or exhibit a characteristic that we can look
at and appreciate that it is being done at a high
We use the "S" in STAR to represent Seeing What
is Needed which means that STARs:
-see what they don't know or don't have
their purpose and focus on what's important
STARs have a clarity of vision not only about
themselves, but about the people around them. They see the
gifts, talents and skills that each individual brings to an
event or a job. One of the ways that STARs shine is to make
others feel important and also help them to see their own
Knowing as much as you can about your own gifts, skills and
talents serves two purposes. 1 - it enables you to see very
clearly what you are able to bring to any situation and also
what you are not able to provide, so that you can ensure those
skills and talents are provided by someone else. 2 - it
ensures that you are living on purpose and being true to your
most authentic, essential self.
STARs are voracious learners, not only about the world
around them but about themselves. They seek to discover more
about who they are all the time. Seeing these things about
themselves enables them to contribute clearly to any situation
they encounter and also to see what others (the people they
manage, for example) could bring to a situation.
