INNER AND OUTER POLARITIES AS GROWTH EDGES FOR INNOVATORS
To be an innovator is to walk a sure pathway to personal growth. Polarities – both in the external environment of business demands and expectations and in the internal world of thoughts, beliefs, and feelings – can bring about important developmental shifts in your leadership.
Great innovators bet on the future while banking on the present, stick to their vision while staying agile, follow their own intuition while capturing customers’ imaginations, and strive for perfection while experimenting and failing. They act in the outside world as creative, resilient, persistent, and courageous leaders. Internally, this requires holding the tension between being included while rebelling against the status quo, answering the call to purpose while managing the fear of risk-taking, and being in control of what lies ahead while capturing the freedom to create an entirely new and exciting horizon.
Natasha will talk about the opportunities for development that these polarities offer. She will explore the intersection of those external demands and inner needs and offer an approach for leaders on how to ride these developmental rapids.
