Over the past year, I’ve worked with more than 500 leaders, ranging from CEOs to frontline managers, spanning various sectors and industries, some managing global organisations and others running local businesses. It’s an honour and a constant reminder that we never stop #LearningLeadership.
#Leaders are usually highlighted for their exceptional achievements or major setbacks. However, they are a fascinating mix of ordinary people and extraordinary figures in their daily lives.
Many leaders project an air of confidence, yet they grapple with their own insecurities beneath the surface. They are in positions of immense strength, yet they, too, need support, often more than others.
Leaders face the daunting task of making tough decisions. They strive for the best outcomes, aiming for the greatest good. Yet, such decisions often involve trade-offs, with losses being an unfortunate but necessary result for some.
Leaders, like all of us, make mistakes. However, the magic lies in their ability to learn, adapt, and grow from these experiences. What’s more, is how they scale themselves by passing on the lessons to others and maximising their impact.
So here’s to leaders – the superheroes in the trenches, the humans behind the titles. You inspire us all!
