As a leader, your shadow side cannot be hidden as easily while the spotlight is brighter on you. I am not talking about shadow as evil, but rather the darker part of a leadership personality. More eyes are watching, waiting and eager to blame and point out your shadow –your mistakes, weaknesses, failures, defeats or degradations of all kinds. Great leaders learn to embrace their shadow side and laugh easily at themselves. They acknowledge that they have made a mistake by seeing it, saying it, apologizing for it, let it go and move on from it.
Today gives you opportunity to practice working with anything in your shadow side that you may be ashamed of.
- What happens when you see it, say it, right the wrong, release it and move on?
