The Crucible Of Leadership - AVC

🔒 avc.com

What a great read and an interesting concept. I read this and felt a lot of truth ring through in my own experience.

The magic, the alchemy, occurs when what we do mixes with who we are and is cooked by the heat of what we believe.

This is worth reading a few times, and probably keeping a bookmark to for the future.

I can say with total conviction that as I have worked on being a better leader it has required me to get better with myself first. As I’ve broken down those barriers, I’ve been able to engage others better. After all, if you cannot have a constructive conversation with yourself on a difficult topic, how can you ever with another person.

That’s often the biggest obstacle to becoming your self. The frenzied, frenetic, do-it-now, answer-the-email-now-or-the-company-will-die-even-though-it’s-3 a.m. attitude is precisely the wrong process of becoming your self.

You need space and room.
