FROM MESS TO SUCCESS: CHECK YOUR PARADIGMS
- Make a list of all the people who report to you. One by one, reflect on your current paradigm of them as a professional or their promotability. Are you willing to challenge its accuracy? Could it be incomplete?
- If you were to suspend your current paradigm of someone, could they earn their way to a different paradigm? If so, how? What would you need to “see”?
- Flip this challenge onto yourself. Seek out a trusted friend or colleague and ask them to share their paradigm about you — as a leader, friend, colleague, or any other role they may have context for. Can you summon the maturity and introspection to grow into the paradigm you’d like them to hold?
- Checking paradigms often requires a sustained, deep look into yourself to work. This is not a “quick fix.” Ask yourself: Am I willing to pay the price to change my mindset?
