There’s a lot of literature about what it means to be a great leader, and who can be considered one.
Many times we have two narratives in our heads: the leader I should be,
– calm, supportive, assertive – and the leader I’m certain I can be right now – a leader who needs more boundaries with co-workers, a leader who’s stretched and needs some rest, a leader who needs someone to come and help with this specific aspect of the business.
Between the ideal leader and the reality of who you are and how you feel, there is a magic place to show up as the best leader you can be right now.
Between the should and the can, there is always space for being.
