I just got off my coaching call.
And what I’m discovering is just how easy it is to get caught up in the actions rather than the conversations.
Leaders generally are doers and are used to creating. They know they can count on themselves to create anything they want.
But ultimately, that’s not leadership. Leadership is unfolding a series of conversations. The conversations are what lead to the actions.
What I’m seeing for myself is that there is less breakthrough in action than in conversation.
I can’t tell you how many actions I’ve taken, or how much time and effort I’ve invested in them, that ultimately led to lackluster, disappointing, out of balance results (in proportion to the actions taken, the results were surprisingly dismal).
I’ve heard gurus say that actions are of limited use. Before, I didn’t have access to that. Now I see. There are more breakthroughs waiting in conversations than in actions.There are more breakthroughs waiting in conversations than in actions. Click To Tweet
