The Leadership Mastery Map
In our leadership coaching practice, we see the most successful leaders are looking at their world holistically. They are able to see all aspects of a situation and bring wisdom and sophistication to their decision making processes.
We call this multi-faceted perspective The Leadership Mastery Map™. This model is based on the work of Ken Wilber, a well-known contemporary philosophical thinker. It encompasses all of the territory a leader must navigate to be successful.
Two dichotomies emerge from this model: individual versus collective, and subjective versus objective. By using a 2x2 matrix, we can include all perspectives on a particular situation.
To successfully implement any plan or decision, it is imperative to take a step back to make sure that all components impacted by the change are taken into consideration and planned for.
Observe over the next few days how you evaluate situations and make decisions. You may find yourself seeing things differently by considering all quadrants.
