Not long ago, I walked into a one-on-one coaching session with a client who was poised to present her issue for the day’s discussion. Her manager had recently spoken to her about the expression, “What got you here won’t get you to the next level,” and my client was concerned about how this concept might apply to her.
Have you ever considered how much being in a leadership role is like dancing? Sometimes you’re being asked to shape up a new team, which might feel like doing a German March.
Have you ever noticed how much time and energy conflicts can take if they are not managed well (or nipped in the bud)? Even with all my years of “poise under pressure” training, it can be hard to stay balanced when things aren’t working as smoothly as expected.
