Organizational transformation begins with people. More specifically, it begins inside every employee ~ both leaders and colleagues. It begins with something that causes each of us to think, see, feel, and act in new ways. For a company to change, everyone across the organization needs to change. Change starts from inside and radiates out. The deepest change we can make is in our belief about who we are.”
Executive coaching has taught us that what is missing for many leaders is the view from the outside in ~ how we influence others and how they perceive us relative to the actions we take every day. Since feelings have been considered taboo for so long in the business world, we have pretended they do not exist. Among new leaders, feelings make a big difference.
In fact, how we make others feel about our leadership is now a critical measure of our success or failure. When we hold one view of ourselves ~ and that view is from the inside out ~ we are living in a one-dimensional experience of leadership. When we become aware of how we affect others and the experience we create with them, we are living multi-dimensional experience of leadership.”
