MVP: There are three stages of a leader’s journey. Which one are you in?
Back in September I did a webinar on escaping the black hole of urgency.
We looked at leadership as being a journey.
In the first stage of the journey, we blast off and move into leadership with aspirations of making a difference, serving others, and improving our organization. But early in the journey we get pulled off course and sucked into the black hole of urgency.
In the second stage, we implement key strategies for escaping the pull of that black hole, and we begin to get back on course.
In the third stage, we begin accelerating towards our goal by implementing the principles of strategic leadership (purpose not urgency, problems before symptoms, progress instead of action, people over tasks).
