Consider this scenario: Your team is not meeting its objectives. What’s your response? Are your proactive or reactive? When you are proactive, you observe, pause, reflect and choose before you act. When you are reactive, you default to habitual ways of thinking and being and do what you have always done. And how about taking responsibility? Do you ask yourself, “How have my actions contributed to the problem?” Or, do you see the situation as something that you had no role in creating? A high-performing, flourishing culture requires leaders who show up differently. It’s doing internal work and then making intentional choices that makes you an effective leader.
