Some thoughts about unleashing leadership at every level inspired after talking with Peter Webb on Leadership Moments and hearing future guest Suzi Skinner speak.
All teams are busy and challenged to do more with less. There is often a narrative around lack of resources and, more often than not, this means people. Everyone is working to full capacity and can’t do more. If that resonates with you, try this exercise to see if you can uncover a few new resources.
- Explore your own mindset about who is a leader and where leadership is found - see if you can take a view that sees leadership at every level and everywhere around you. Leadership that has the capacity to take on challenge and get things done.
- Now, look around you within your own team and at their teams, at your peers’ teams and beyond, really expand your view and see leaders at every level. As you look with a different view - what new resources open up to you?
If you shift your mindset and start to see leadership at every level and engage with them as leader to leader, hopefully you see a field full of undiscovered resources and potential just waiting to be unleashed!
