Ep 222: Addressing What’s in the Space

Listen to the Episode Here:

People are geared to avoid conflict. If you feel that there is discomfort or you feel that something is not right, people collectively agree not to go near it. Just like a bump in a carpet, it is a thing that you ignore, pretending it’s not there and not stepping past it. But did you know that spaces people collectively avoid are problematic in leadership? Addressing what’s in the space is a fundamental quality and skill you must have as a leader. It is one of the things that you try to read, learn and figure out how but it never works because it must be practiced. Listen as we will discuss how to learn to see what is in the space, why we avoid it and the best practices to see it.
