What are you committed to? Far too often, we get caught up in how we feel and allow our emotions to color how we live. It’s not that our emotions are strictly bad. In fact, they serve as “mile markers” that signify where we are and what we might need to change. However, if we allow our emotions to completely control our decisions, then our lives would change with every passing emotion. Instead, we need to determine what we are committed to, despite hardships or our feelings.

In her Weekly Coaching Tip, Elena shares a simple, yet powerful leadership insight from Lebron James that you can use to clarify your emotional state. In her interview, Elena talks with director, choreographer, performer, and artistic director of ALMA NYC, Zanza Steinberg. Whether she’s leading dancers to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, funding scholarships for women to attend college in Africa, or launching her own media company, Media by Z, Zanza puts her heart and soul in all she does. Together, Elena and Zanza discuss the origin of ALMA NYC, the connective power of art, and why everyone should be audacious and reach for the stars.
