Leadership Is Constant in Crucibles 2.0

April 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

Part Two of exploring Robert Thomas’ book, Crucibles of Leadership…

Thomas states: “People who undergo a crucible and grow through the experience all share something vital: they don’t become stuck…no mater what the situation, however difficult and trying, they are not paralyzed by these circumstances. Where others see chaos and confusion, they see opportunities to learn and grow.”

Ah, we once again return a central tenet of leadership: Leaders are responsible for their own freedom and accountability. It is a choice. A choice no one else makes for you, but you.

Seeing a trying circumstance as an opportunity to learn and grow is a choice. Seeing a trying circumstance as an opportunity to play victim is also a choice.

Which one is your default? Now ask yourself, why?
