What do YOU see?
Today I had the change to work with a group of leaders of which some of them I know for more then 2 years. It was interesting to see how they blend into the total group of peers as well as into the hierarchical / political setting. Over lunch as well as after the meeting I spent a few minutes with individual follow ups and every single one of them referenced to self image vs how they are perceived from others as being a current topic of concern.
On my way home checking emails in the train I crossed the enclosed picture and my believe in synchronicity got confirmed, as it’s exactly the topic I referred today to my clients. “What is it that you see in you. What is it that you want, not them”.
My believe is that what YOU see / feel / know about yourself is what makes who you are. That does not mean that you shall “boost” your imagination into a nonrealistic dream world, but “every cat can have the heart of a lion.”
You shall act out of your position of strength. That was also something I said in the last 24 hours more then once. Do not say “sorry” if there isn’t anything to be sorry of (at least not when you are dealing in Western business cultures). Fill your position without defense or attack as there is no need to justify what or who you are. Again that does not mean any of us is a super hero as everyone of us is only a human being. But exactly the latter – the being – is something that seems to be difficult – so who am I? My replay: who do YOU see (or feel or …) yourself that you are?
