Being of Leadership
any of my clients, they arrive in coaching with some degree of expectation that there is a problem with them, that they aren't good enough or they in some way lack the skills, talents and ability to succeed in their leadership role.
In fact, I have found the opposite to be true! Most clients are well-equipped for what they do as a leader with managerial responsibilities, what I continue to observe is the untapped opportunity for connecting with who they are as a leader. And, with a well-developed sense of who they are as a leader, I wonder what impact that will have on their ability to influence others and the organization.
As I think about the insights Michelle provided; there are 3 main points that stood out for me;
- how to shift our natural human tendency of being in judgment to being in a place discernment, curiosity, and pursuit of shared accountability
- what is needed for bringing opposing people and parties together and the concept of ‘otherizing’
- The clarification in the distinction between meditation and mindfulness

What thoughts/beliefs do you hold about others that contribute to you engaging in ‘otherizing?’
Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him, and to let him know you trust him. ~ Booker T Washington
