This week’s nibble of abundant deliciousness was the opportunity to learn and stretch. I spent most of last week in New York at a management development class. Good stuff…very little lecturing and and information overload…lots of practicing using tried and true tools. I left clearer about how I can guide my team in inspiring great leaders.
My husband was also in some leadership training last week. My learning and stretching continued last night as I reviewed the handouts he brought home. A few ideas got me thinking about how I am interpreting and how I might engage differently with some situations at work:
- What looks like resistance is often lack of direction
- What looks like a people problem is often a situation problem
- What looks like laziness is often exhaustion
“What’s really going on?”, I found myself asking…and I opened to new possibilities.
