Leadership: Choices

Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself. - Robert Benett, US Senator
Choice is a foundational principle of leadership coaching. Leaders can learn to be more intentional and aware of the choices they are making for themselves, their team and/or their organization.

Ask yourself:
What choices have you made recently that were really important for you? Your team? Your organization?
What was the benefit or payoff of this choice? What was the cost?
What freedom has this choice provided you with? What made it difficult or easy?
What possibilities or opportunities does this choice now provide you with?

Have a great start to the week.

Warm regards
