Exceptional Leaders see all aspects of a situation. The big picture includes inner values, beliefs and internal dynamics. In the four quadrant model, the upper left (individual interior subjective) should be taken into consideration in all decisions and evaluations.
We can see examples in the news where individuals have ignored their real values. Only when they find themselves negotiating a plea bargain agreement, do they realize that something went very wrong. This blindness can happen in less dramatic ways as well, such as when we don’t step back and look at all aspects of a situation, including our internal beliefs and values as well as our personality, before we decide.
