Go Deeper With Each Other
We had a discussion last week on Leadership and how the Elegant Leadership platform came into being. The discussion evolved around that word elegant. Leading people isn’t much different that dating. My friend looked puzzled and quipped, “how’s that?”
Each person puts their best foot forward in an attempt to be liked by the other. They just want the other person to like them and so they present themselves in the best manner possible. Because everyone is on their best behavior, love is natural, invigorating, and energizing – so is an Elegant Leader. They lead simply, powerfully, practically and gracefully.
The problem is in both areas is we show who we truly are in time. That’s the point, ‘ sometime later’ you, me, everyone shows who we really are when the heat’s on, life’s struggles bubble up and stress mounts. It’s then we see the ugly truth.
Many people during the early dating stages are focused on finding the right person and then impressing their socks off when what they ought to focus on is being authentic.
