What does your name mean?

Christopher AmbigramAwhile back I had used the letters in my name to put out some key words to show my leadership focus on my Twitter profile (@cjjordan76). I have since edited my profile and just today, I was thinking about how to get back into blogging and how to re-engage my focus when I read a post by a superb leader friend in the #LeadWithGiants community identifying 26 key leadership words. It reminded me of my desire to have an impact in the world of leadership and now, I want to put meaning to my name again.

I encourage you to try…and see where you fall in terms of the first word that comes to mind when you do this. It can truly be an eye-opening experience and quite fun to work through if you have some unusual letters to find a word for. Good luck and enjoy!

Competent         Just

                   Honest                Open-minded

             Resilient               Respectful

            Intuitive               Dedicated

                 Selfless                Accountable


I shortened my first name for space sake…but I have done my full name. I find that these words closely relate to my values and are something I strive to be everyday. It also helps me to regain my perspective (#perspectivelead) and focus and take that necessary deep breath to start the day. I have done my own vision and mission statement as well, and may share them in a future post. I thank Linda Freeman from @ThriveJournal for helping me with that!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and talk soon!
