Marshall Goldsmith’s article “Four Bad Habits of Super-Smart Leaders” Series

I mentioned in the last newsletter I have been contemplating Marshall Goldsmith’s article “Four bad habits of super-smart leaders”. This month I’m paying attention to the places where I get locked on proving myself right. And it’s not pretty. Whenever I find myself super stressed, or feeling in conflict, I set out to find the answers that make me right. Unfortunately it often leaves me alone in the conversation because who wants to be talking to that person? The good news is that I can catch myself earlier and earlier now – having invested time in July to check myself over and over. It wasn’t a challenging task. I noticed when I was committed to being right, and then paused. That breath allowed room for the conversation to be two-sided, and for me to get curious about the other perspective. Now it’s your turn. Where have you noticed you are locked on proving yourself right? And how can you get curious about the other perspective?
