We lead by virtue of who we are. We are all CEOs of our own lives. The only difference is the domain of influence. The process is the same: we lead from who we are. The leader and the person are one. As we learn to master our growth as a person, we will be on the path to mastery of Leadership from the Inside Out.
What does mastery of leadership mean to you? Our ideas about mastery and leadership tend to be externalized. Our leadership development (LD) programs focus on learning about things. We learn what to think, not how to think. We learn what to do, not how to be. We learn what to achieve, not how to achieve. We learn about things, not the nature of things.
