As leaders, thinking ahead is a huge part of the job. Yet it is often focusing too much on what’s in front of us instead of where we are that leads to missteps and frustrations. So how can you begin to stay in the present moment, and lead from within?
The way we diagnose issues, the way listen to people, the way we drop our ego and our agenda to really understand what's working, what's not working, and what people need so that we, instead of imposing ourselves or demonizing our opposition and creating more divisive tactics just to win—which we see all the times in politics—we also look at being more inclusive, more responsive, and more collaborative. At the end of the day the kind of solutions we result in are more sustainable because it involves everyone's input and ownership. That results in longer term real transformation.
