For years I’ve carried around a business card with John Kotter’s emotions that work for and against change written on the back of it. Pulling out the card and reading it helped me build a habit of recognizing when I was adding to or robbing from the change I was trying to drive.
Because of my previous card carrying experience, I’ll admit to being open to Ralph Soule’s recommendation that I print and carry a card on how to practice inquisitive and active leadership. I’ll be printing mine today.
If you’re looking for a system to practice to improve your leadership (of yourself first and then others), then check out both his blog post and the additional material at the link.
Both are well worth the read.
