All humans are imperfect, a characteristic that leaders need to embrace in order to truly connect with their people.
To all those leaders out there who are achievement junkies and/or recovering perfectionists, I have walked a mile in your shoes! And the things that I’ve learned along the way:
- Perfection Equals Disconnection.
- The Goal is Progress, not Perfection.
- If you give up perfection and focus on progress.
- You’ll be happier and more connected with yourself.
- Your teams will be happier and more connected to you.
Is this the beginning of a new world of work that values productivity AND the human experience over perfection? Now is the time to reimagine how to work, when to work, how to meet, when to meet, how to connect, who to connect with, and what to prioritize.
Now is the time to rethink how you lead — and the HOW is the most important part. By connecting with yourself and your team in different ways, you can drive results in this new environment.
In this episode of The Simply Practically Human with Mark LeBusque, Dr. Michelle K. Johnston, author of The Seismic Shift in Leadership, delves into perfection, the importance of connection, and how it’s changed and challenged humans to think and act differently over the past three years.
