When you’re caught in your paradigm, you only see and hear what fits inside your established model.
In the moment of choice, I made the connection
Step outside the established rules and see what happens…
As I stepped out, my paradigm was questioned…trust your intuition!
Engage the innocence of new people…outsiders who do not understand our paradigm
Embrace and understand the present paradigm today will not work to solve the current problems.
WAKE UP CALL
Something is missing
a new way to listen
Seize your chance – your moment
Chance to play, when you have nothing to lose
Successful break withs’ require a new leadership model – an outsider sees things differently.
Model the Behavior you Expect
- try a different way
- think everything through in advance
- get innovative and creative
- remember – it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
- measure the ROI – but think in “higher math” terms
And remember… shift happens!
Tell your people they are doing a great job
Here is a question…have you ever met anyone that has complained that they are recognized by their boss too much?
When the answer is clear – act on it!
Taking risks is not all that difficult
Sometimes you just get damn lucky
Invest in your people is more than just words
In achieving a true breakthrough, you leadership model must change
Not everything is a QUICK FIX
Leadership is about letting go
Leadership is about swimming upstream
It has to be more than just words
How Does It Happen?…action
How Do You Start? Try Letting GO
