Organizations need leaders who can work at speed to navigate the uncertain and complex environment within which they operate. Being shows how leaders can learn, grow and thrive in a world of fast change.
We get up and do, do, do. We can become governed by our to-do lists and forget that we are human ‘beings,’ not human ‘doings.’ Doing is important, but it is not why we exist. In a world characterized by complexity, ambiguity, disruption and globalization, the quality of our being will determine the quality of our experience. This is true in all walks of life but has heightened significance in the leadership domain.
As a leader the risk of being dominated by ‘doing’ can cause you to lose touch with the essential qualities required to provide great leadership.
