Leadership in challenging times: 2

Each new season brings with it new challenges that we must face.

Our world is constantly evolving, and every year we experience changes on various levels. These changes can be economic, social, educational, or even impact the way we interact with one another. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a unique set of challenges, such as cabin fever, isolation, and the irritation that can arise from being in close quarters with others for extended periods.

While it may be tempting to wish these challenges away or try to escape them, it is important to recognize that they are here to stay. We cannot simply kick against this season and hope it disappears. Rather, we must accept the challenges and allow them to change us, molding us into the person we are meant to be.

This inside-out approach allows us to take the challenges of the current season and transform them into opportunities for growth and self-awareness.

As leaders, it is important to become self-aware, recognizing our strengths and areas for improvement. This season provides an opportunity for us to learn more about ourselves and our decision-making and communication styles. Additionally, we must be aware of those who follow us and recognize that leadership is not limited to those in formal leadership positions.

Each person has the potential to rise up and become a leader in their own right.

Rather than opposing the challenges of this season, we should embrace them and allow them to teach us everything we need to know. It may not be easy, but it is necessary for growth and development. So let us not wish away this difficult season, but rather accept it as an opportunity to become everything we were born to be.

So, as a question to ponder, in what stage of human development are you?
