An unconventional approach
As a leader, you obviously want to surround yourself
with people you trust. You expect them to give you advice. You ask and they volunteer.
But does this mechanism always work the way it should? To what extent are you
prompted to reflect on the right issues
and do you feel challenged at the right moment? My approach is unconventional
and will do just that. By putting you first, your company will become more
sustainable and undoubtedly more successful.
Being successful is a choice
Your mind-set is framed around success. How do you feel when
that doesn’t happen? What does the word
‘fail’ mean to you? Are you willing to consider adjusting the course you are
sailing? Are you capable of letting go of familiar beliefs or at least discuss
their value and applicability under changing circumstances? My way of asking
questions will prompt you to reframe your definition of success.
Sustainability pays off
Sustainability seems to be a hype. A container for everything that needs
to be different. Being the leader you are, you know of course that this is not
true. You know full well that the existence of your company today is no
guarantee for its success in the future. The promise of ‘Tomorrow’ is subject
to your intuitive sense of what sustainability is about. A resilience to timely
adjust with circumstances. It is time to have a dialogue about that.
