Life has its ups and downs. Often it is hard to navigate through cloudy days and find bright days. Fortunately, on Friday, March 12, Linda Dulye, founder of Dulye & Co. and The Dulye Leadership Experience, shared how she navigates cloudy days.
Linda opened up with Breakfast Club attendees about her life journey, touching on the struggles and hardships in her life, as well as the bright spots she sought out during difficult times. Her late mother had a saying that encouraged Linda through hard times; it was the title of this month’s DLE Breakfast Club. Throughout her life, Linda’s mom told her to “find your patch of blue.” Linda did just that.
During a Q&A session with DLE community member and entrepreneur Jonathan Katz, Linda spoke with emotion about defining moments and inspiring individuals that impacted her personal and professional development. To illustrate the highs and lows of her life path, she shared a Journey Line, which started with her childhood, when she worked in the family business, and progressed to her current roles at the helms of Dulye & Co. organizational consultancy and the DLE. The 39 attendees received a kit with video instructions to develop their own Journey Lines—an excellent exercise for self-reflection and growth.
True to the interactive facet of DLE programs, attendees connected through breakout groups to exchange practices for staying positive during hard times.
In case you missed it, the latest DLE YouTube resource features Linda’s interview from the March 13 program. Tune in to hear her describe these seven meaningful and effective strategies for positivity:
