How will you be more true to yourself this year?
Happy new year! May it be all that you hope and wish it to be - for you and those whom you care about
The golden rule for leadership appears to be that there are no golden rules. Many of the best leaders in the world appear to defy ‘gravity’ and all the learned research on what makes a good leader.
And yet we continue to search for the magic and key ingredients. You won’t fine the ingredients here. But... you may find some of your ingredients after considering the questions and thoughts in this blog.
One of my favourite books on leadership is by Warren Bennis entitled ‘On becoming a leader’. The message that stands out from that book for me is the importance of authenticity. His view is that good leaders are true to themselves. The difficult bit is knowing who you are and then being true to that understanding.
Who are you?
As a leader - how will you be even more true to yourself this year..?
