I’m reading this book, Leadership from the Inside Out, by Kevin Cashman, and I liked this section on personal mastery that pinpoints signs to help you recognize when you are acting from “Character” vs. reacting from “Coping.”
CHARACTER TRANSFORMS VS. COPING REACTS
guided by: guided by:
balanced concern for self and others concern for self
agility/resilience resistance to change
peaceful presence uneasy presence
leader is bigger than circumstance circumstance bigger than leader
There are a lot of enlightened insights in this book about personal mastery, path finding and goal setting. Not sure of the nitty gritty details how to make all the changes and achieve all the goals, but I guess the first step is awareness.
