Leaders are change-makers regardless of position or company. The influence a strong and equipped leader brings is a gift to the entire team. However, all too often higher-level leaders promote individuals based solely on performance. Team members are placed in positions of leadership yet have not been offered previous leadership training.
It can be completely daunting and overwhelming to consider a new leadership position. Not always because it’s something unfamiliar or new; sometimes this fear is about our identity.
Life can be too much. Leadership can be too much. Frankly, my kitchen junk drawer can be too much. What do we do when we are splashed with overwhelm from every angle? I talk with so many leaders who are functioning in constant recovery mode.
