Daily Journey – August 26th: Seeking Out Shipwrecks
One of the maxims taught in military circles is that leadership development and potential is enhanced when challenges and large problems are encountered early in a career.
The lessons learned and the value systems that are developed by facing these challenges (win or loose) solidifies important character traits needed to lead teams.
Some of the things I have learned from challenges I faced throughout the years:
– Value of relationships
– Bias Awareness
– Value of action
– Importance of facts
– Necessity of speed
– Fairness and equality
– How to establish trust
We should seek out these challenges throughout our entire lives, because negotiating through them will always make us better.
What have you learned from some of the shipwrecks you have come across in your life?
