Right now, it seems like my heart is a more valuable guide to what I should be doing in the world than my head.
My head is better with maps and spreadsheets.
But there seems to be no working map or spreadsheet available right now.
My heart calls me to serve rather than solve.
My heart calls me to declare a different truth than we typically see in the corporate world. That the more of ourselves we are willing to bring to work (even WFH), the more vulnerable and real we are willing to be, the more effective we can be as leaders.
That we can only become better leaders if we first become better humans.
I’ve seen a lot of people “succeed” the other way. By intimidating, by demeaning, by choosing the easy bad over the hard good.
And it seems to work. For awhile, anyway.
I have succumbed to this intimidation for too long.
Am I willing to be ridiculed for declaring a truth I see as self-evident?
Am I willing to stop hiding?
What about you?
If you want to be part of a group of people who want to bring their whole selves to work, who believe that better, more vulnerable, more authentic humans make better leaders, PM me and I will tell you more.
We can do this if we do it together.
