Know your strength, cause you can build on them. But they also because tell you when and where to stop. Here acceptance must begin, cause your influence ends.
Prospectively, good leadership will be about making companies and workforces as crisis-proof as possible.
Therefore, they say, know thyself. Know thy strengths. Know thy resources. Also, we need optimism, the ability to reframe and give meaning. Even more important: goal-orientation, commitment to go for those goals and strategies to cope with problems and stress.
What we often forget is acceptance. There is a point where we can’t influence the outcomes. One has to accept this boundary because all strengths, resources, and grit don’t work here. Active problem-solving is opposed to acceptance.
Acceptance must begin where our influence ends.
And identifying this boundary is prerequisite to resilience, and making your team and company crisis-proof.
There is no practical value of perfectionism at the wrong place. Accept it.
