Ambushed by speed, complexity, and uncertainty, many of us are unprepared for this acceleration. We act on autopilot as new challenges confront us. We are too reactive to problems and miss out on opportunities. We get hijacked by conflicting values and polarizing relationships. We face uncertainty with fear and mistrust. Stress and burnout are pervasive as many of us do not perform up to our potential.Specifics that we covered on the show include: On the term “conscious leaders” and what happens when you found those leaders (3:15) The commonality of people who are consciously aware (6:57) The four reasons why people aren’t changing fast enough (9:38) On the idea of reflection (12:01) How do people get past cognitive biases? (17:55) Where can people start to “go deep”? (22:56) On what is next after the book CONSCIOUS: The Power of Awareness in Business and Life (29:30) On the book Grounded: How Leaders Stay Rooted in an Uncertain World (32:30) “Organizations are healthy only when the leaders are healthy. The very best leaders were a combination of self-aware and deeply committed to their own development.” ~ Bob RosenRelevant Links:WebsiteFacebookTwitterYouTubeLinkedInBook: CONSCIOUS: The Power of Awareness in Business and LifeBook: Grounded: How Leaders Stay Rooted in an Uncertain WorldThis episode teaches us to be aware, awake, and accountable.
