Most leaders don’t lapse out of laziness or incompetence. More likely the reason is that increasingly anything that is not “urgent” doesn’t find its way onto their radar. Our observation is that often both learning from the past and anticipating the future are left on the “when I’ve got time pile”. This focus on what is pressing right now makes us think of the expression “nose to the grindstone”. When your nose is to the grindstone, all it can see is the grindstone. That lack of lateral vision can be dangerous for leaders in this complex and fluid world we inhabit.
Even highly successful leaders can transform their leadership effectiveness.
We received some feedback at the end of a recent Board Review that our approach and report was “thorough and candid but not sharp”. This enabled the Board in question to engage with the emerging themes and move forward to become even more effective.
