We live and lead in an increasingly volatile, complex, and ambiguous world. And paradoxically, as leaders today we must not merely act more quickly but pause deeper.
- Are you so busy that you don’t give yourself enough time to pause and take time to reflect?
- Do you feel you are addicted to ticking off your to-do lists, to speed and transactions?
- Do you feel that you are on autopilot mode when it comes to what is next in your life?
- When was the last time you gave yourself a day to reflect on what you want out of your life?
If you are so busy you don’t have time to reflect, then you are managing rather than leading.
An antidote to all of the above is taking a conscious Pause: Stepping back to reflect and deliberate, and then lead forward with greater clarity, focus, and impact. Rather than merely doing more, we must learn to pause and do things differently in order to grow and achieve ultimate success in all aspects of our lives.
All of these practices lead to purposeful change, and contribution: an essential part of a leader’s everyday life.
Pause precedes real transformation in our lives as leaders and people. We partner with LifebyDanielle to run Instant Pause retreats to help you become the most effective version of yourself.
Join the next Instant Pause on the 18th of November 2017.
