In some area of your life, you are leading the way whether you're a parent, partner, coach, manager or yourself.
Leaders therefore are the ones that see opportunity for change before anyone else. We are the visionary, and we have the passion to help others see the new way.
Yet being a leader is often a thankless process isn’t it. The people we are aiming to guide are often a few steps back on the process of change. And change is uncomfortable, and we all resist it in some form or another.
This is why the path of a leader so very lonely. When we try and pull people to us, we are the ones creating resistance.
No matter how great or innovative our ideas are, it’s not the real driver to transformation.
We can be thinking about change for a long time, preparing etc… and then set the date in the calendar. But the reality is that you’re much further round the cycle than the rest of the people you’re with.
