If you’re growing as a leader, you’re likely operating at the limits of your abilities all the time. This also means that the way you’re leading people, making decisions, and approaching problems isn’t good enough for the way you need to lead next.
You’re right, you do have more capacity to lead even if you haven’t been able to access it yet. If you feel dissatisfied, ineffective, or you’re getting feedback that you need to get better, you can develop more leadership capacity. You need to include all you’ve been, address the limits of where that will take you, and grow into a new stage of leadership.
This is where an in-depth knowledge of the way adults learn and change, Adult Development, informs the ways you can grow to become something new. My experience studying, teaching, and coaching from this Developmental approach acknowledges the ways you have been leading, names the leadership edge you’re on, uncovers the limitations that come from it, and designs a way forward, to become a new kind of leader.
Leaders like you want to grow, you’re ready to become something new without losing who you’ve been. I believe that your organization and the people you lead are all counting on you to grow this way.
