Many leaders consider leadership to be more of a team sport played with others than an individual exercise. While successfully leading individuals across your organization is unarguably essential to high performance, I want you to stop and think for a minute…
In the leadership equation, who is the most important person to lead in your organization?
We’ve all heard the expression; “You need to put your oxygen mask on first.” This is critical on an airplane. Without oxygen, it would only be a matter of seconds before one loses consciousness and rendered unable to help yourself or others around you.
Our reality, whether in the air or in the boardroom of our organizations is the same; we can only lead and serve at the highest levels when we are healthy, self-aware and learning to lead ourselves first.
I discovered this truth first hand. After years of studying various leadership styles I was asked a profoundly powerful question. The question was, “have you ever thought of what it is like to be on the other side of you?” This question stopped me in my tracks and has set me on an exciting journey to discover what’s behind a leader worth following.
From my experience and from my years of studying leadership principles and practices, it is well understood that the most difficult person to lead is oneself. When I see simply through my own lens of reality, I miss out on the bigger scope of what is happening around me.
When we start asking ourselves tough questions, like the one mentioned previously, we grow and discover a deeper sense of our leadership core. The better we know ourselves the better we are able lead others and progress toward the quest of becoming a liberating leader.
