Episode 26: Forest v. the trees

One of the greatest qualities of leadership is reflection and we often forget to take a second and elevate ourselves out of the micro moment and move ourselves to the macro analysis. Join us for a conversation of how to step back from your situation and look at it differently and/or with another person to gain perspective. 

  • Thinking of your current and most significant issue – how could you change your view so that you see the problem in a new way?
  • Can you scrabble that problem so that a solution may emerge?
  • When mountaineers climb, they often bring along a guide or Sherpa – who are your Sherpa’s – who are the people who can guide you to new heights so that you can see the problem or issue for what it is?
  • Finally, when you get emotionally engaged in a situation, what will be your strategy to step back and climb to a new height of understanding before responding.
