Often leadership means thinking about the same things in new ways. We need to take our cues wherever we can find them. For example – the wacky world of sports announcing. A few years ago I heard a boxing commentator describe a fighter as being “in a state of confusement.” Just recently, a commentator described a couple of players as having a “comfortability” with one another.
When you hear a silly twist on a word or phrase, can you apply it to your leadership challenges? Think about these newly minted words: What has you feeling “in a state of confusement;” what immediate step will you take to shake it? With whom do you need to develop a “comfortability” that will make you a stronger team and deliver better results?
