The Other Leader
Whether you are leading in a not-for-profit, government, family, health care, education, or in another organizational context, leading well is challenging…and you are not alone. As a leader, you are oftentimes rewarded for having answers. The irony is that it’s the questions we haven’t answered yet that are the true accelerators of our development as leaders.
The Real Story
Ask any leader about the greatest challenge they are facing and you will hear the real story. It may start with being a leader for the first time or transitioning to a new role, but one level deeper you will hear about seemingly impossible work relationships, feelings of having lost touch with their families or feeling unhealthy, or moments where they question their competence or their reason for leading. This is where the real learning occurs – in the moments and conversations that connect our daily business challenges with the rest of our lives. That’s the Whole Leader story.
It is time to get real and vulnerable as leaders. The stakes are high and will require leaders who are willing to edit themselves for the sake of others, and will still maintain a sense of their own convictions and identity. Leaders who have all the answers are dangerous. It is time to get intentional about developing leaders with the courage to go first, and the willingness to pay attention to the needs of those they serve. This has never been more important in our organizations than it is today.
