Some leaders know about these requirements but struggle to find their way. These leaders understand intuitively that the way they lead now is unsustainable for them and for their people but cannot seem to change direction. Other leaders see their competition evolving, but keep their heads stuck in the sand, too uncomfortable with change to change.
Because we are often unknowingly guided by assumptions and biases, or too influenced by a culture when deciding how to lead, we can limit our capabilities as if blindfolded. We are often unaware of our conditioning, but with a little insight, choices open up for us so we can drop the shackles that bind us to our one way thinking, emotions and behaviours.
The clarity that comes from awareness allows us to operate with a purpose and authenticity that operates like a bright light, guiding us and our people through the fog of challenge and change.
