Can anyone and everyone be a leader? Has the need ever been more urgent for more people to step into their own leadership?
In my most recent article for Cutter, I make the case for why and how more people start or deepen their “inner-leader journey.”
Cutter editor, Tim Lister, had this to say when he introduced the article:
“Bill Fox wrote our fifth article, which says we must enter into a quest to transform ourselves and learn new ways of living and working together that elevate everyone. He says Industrial Age rules and thinking are limiting us and that today’s times call for team members to have the ability to lead themselves and others, regardless of location or circumstances. Fox advocates for leaders to transform internally in a way that enables them to shape the future rather than just respond to events. “When we open ourselves up to begin an inner transformation, we begin to see things as they truly are. When we see what is true, we allow something new to show up. We begin to think and act in new ways and interact differently with others,” he writes.”
“Fox describes six areas of growth that are key to transformation: forward-thinking, self-leadership, inner awareness and intuition, inner-leader journey, listening and dialogue, and understanding how the mind works. He stresses that insight for new leadership resides not in the “other”; rather, it is accessible to everyone. By enhancing our ability to look and listen within, we shape our world from the inside out, he says.”
