Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Spider-Man: Far From Home

A Reel Leadership Article

Tom Holland returns to the fun role of Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-Man: Far From Home picks up shortly after the recent Avengers: Endgame movie.

Peter Parker is still reeling from the aftermath of Endgame. His friend and mentor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Junior), is dead. He’s trying to figure out his place in the world he recently returned to. And he has a big legacy to live up to.

Not only that, Peter has a love interest, a classmate named MJ (Zendaya). His class is going on an overseas trip (hence the Far From Home subtitle) and he has a big plan. He’s going to ask MJ out.

All of Peter’s plans go in the trash when something crazy happens. A water elemental who looks a lot like Hydro-Man, a Spider-Man villain who controls water, attacks London while Peter and his class are there.

Podcast Show Notes

What else should we know about you?

I have a real strong background in television and radio. I was also Miss Michigan Teenager when I was 17.

I’ve gleaned something new from every leader that I’ve worked with. And I try to take that and encapsulate that.

These Business Leaders Know To Disconnect. Do You?

Part of the leader’s job is to be available to those they’re leading. Or so we’ve been told.

Our culture has taught us that we need to be at the beck and call of those who have our number. After all, what’s a cell phone for except to get in touch with someone?

That’s what we’ve been told. We’ve been hooked with the lie that we need to be reached at a moments notice.

While a timely response should be common place, constant connection is deadly to our health and relationships.

Take a cue from these organizational leaders who know how to disconnect:

Heidi Klum – This woman is a machine. She’s a supermodel, the host and executive producer of Project Runway, a judge on America’s Got Talent, and she runs a fashion line.

Why Michael Hyatt Was Wrong (And Right) In Disabling Blog Comments

A major influence in my becoming a blogger was Michael Hyatt. His blog on leadership mentored me as I grew in my role as a leader.

Eventually, I took on the role as one of his community leaders. As such, I helped moderate and respond to comments.

That’s why it was such a shock to see his blog post announcing he was disabling comments on his blog.

 

One of the things I LOVED about Michael’s blog was the fact we had direct access to him. Not only were we able to read his thoughts, we were able to discuss what he shared directly with him.

He’d take the time to read through the blog comments, eventually turning part of this over to his community leaders, and respond to those who commented. It was mind-blowing.
