Focusing on being present is like focusing on doing nothing. When we are being present with someone, we are creating space for them.
I’ve written before about wu-wei, the concept of “doing without doing.” By supporting and empowering others, strategic leaders accomplish great things with less effort.
Being present with people helps them grow and to do better. Yes, being present takes effort, but it doesn’t take action.
Being still and calm can be as effective as being active and excited.
