We often our proud of ourselves when we notice something that others cannot see--the tiny print on a sign, the variance in a color shade, family patterns or dynamics in our workplace.
In the role of leader, not only are you responsible for seeing what others cannot, you are required to take action in the face of various circumstances that impede team effectiveness--to intervene.
Recently I was reminded that what lives unfinished in your life plays out within the team you are leading. If optimized and observed without judgment we can become even better leaders with more choices at our disposal.
If a lack of curiosity persists, we miss opportunities to do real work with ourselves, learn and integrate our new awareness in the work we do with others.
Often, we ignore the obvious--we cannot change others. We need to change ourselves AND the conditions of the environment where the "problem" lives.
