Last week I was asked a question I don't think I answer often enough.
During the interview I gave last week on Close-Up Radio (listen to the replay here), the host Doug Llewelyn, asked me what it takes to be a "Wise Leader".
I answered that I think it boils down to these elements:
Importantly, wise leaders recognize they are leading in a complex world with near constant change. They schedule regular strategy time to look at the bigger organizational picture, a clearer vision for their team, and stay aware of both what to say yes to, and what to say no to.
All of the work I do is centered on helping leaders become Wise Leaders through one-on-one executive coaching or the Women Managers Leadership Cohorts.
Can anyone become a Wise Leader?
In my experience, those with a sincere desire to do so have no problem given the right coaching and practice. If you want this, it is certainly something you can obtain.
I have helped people become Wise Leaders through one-on-one coaching with me.
And I've been excited to see the many women in my Women Managers Leadership Cohorts over the years on their ways to becoming Wise Leaders, too. The next Cohort begins on July 15th.
If you've ever wanted to become a better, wiser leader, one who puts people before profits while excelling at supporting your organization's mission, there is no better way to learn than joining the Cohort. You can register here and be sure to email me back if you have any questions about it.
