Christine Lai, a Collaboration Catalyst out of CA, joins us to discuss creating progressive leadership starting with ourselves.
A few key points:
Ensure you work in a supportive and safe space – physically, mental and emotional safety
If you’re not getting the leadership you want and need, ask, “Where does leadership live?”
Could the answer be, “Within you”? We have to model what’s needed to create what’s possible.
What’s missing and what you can infill?
Is curiosity is encouraged and invited?
If curiosity creates risk, let’s ask what we’re afraid of.
Be nimble enough to pivot, change very quickly and economically.
Create an environment where we won’t get in trouble when we make a mistake. There are no mistakes, there are only lessons learned.
Do you have an “Accountabilabuddy” – NEW WORD ALERT
I’d rather you be specific and wrong than vague and right and stay in the safe zone. This is the sweet spot of innovation, new thinking and distinctive ideas
WE ALL HAVE LEADERSHIP WITHIN US.
