Several years ago, a thorny topic came up at work, and we had a sequence of difficult meetings to try to sort through options. It was hard to get everyone on the same page, especially with senior leaders on all sides of the issue. “I need you to be more forceful,” said my manager. “You need to express your opinions about this, or we might not get to the right decision.”
Such an effective image for helping people (like me) enact "baby steps" when it comes to stretching different character traits in different situations.
That's an interesting concept, never thought about it! Thanks for sharing :)
Great way to break out of impostor syndrome too, and build new muscles that aren’t comfortable at first. Love this piece, Ami. The mental game for leaders is so critical to prioritize.
Doing something new always feels uncomfortable but by persisting we create new beliefs and habits.
Interesting, thanks ! :)
I am going to try this visualization for sure. Always thought consistency was the key but the idea of dials is making a lot of sense to me- especially as it dawned on me that this idea of dialing up does not need to mean that all the other dials are at 0.
