“Leaders are there to help us to discover the greatness within us.”
Mark Peter Kahn
I’ve been a management consultant for 20 years and I’ve been coaching executives and middle managers for the last 10.
I believe that the most useful thing learned by the people I have worked with, is their shift in attitude from tense, stressed, impatient and anxious and resistant to ‘trouble’, to still and calm and modulated.
A movement away from, “I’m not good enough for this job,” to “I’m ok, I don’t have to be perfect, I can get criticized and attacked and face problems everyday and that’s ok!”
Michael hammer, the Godfather of the re-engineering process says that two most important skills necessary for success in business are attitude and creativity.
