Obstacle or Danger???

A healthy dose of perspective & insight  can help successful, high-performing leaders with their decision-making.  The ability to “see things for what they are” is a good thing.  The ability to “see things for what they are not” is even better.

There will be times during your leadership journey when you will face obstacles that will challenge you.  Overcoming these obstacles will prove to be moments of growth and create confidence for facing even greater obstacles in the future.

There will also be times during your leadership journey when you will face danger that needs to be avoided.  There will be warnings (sometimes subtle) like signs on the side of the highway to help you avoid dangerous situations and predicaments. When dealing with danger, the goal is not to overcome it, the goal is to prevent and/or avoid it.

Some leaders confuse obstacles & challenges with warnings of danger; resulting in their team and organizations being placed in a perilous situation because they didn’t know the difference between the two.

Perspective and insight will help the Teachable leader discern the difference between an obstacle to be overcome and a danger to be avoided.

In our next post we’ll begin to explore how to tell the difference between an obstacle and danger.  Have you had any obstacle vs. danger confusion along your leadership journey?? – Please share.
