My latest article has been published in Coaching at Work magazine’s reflection column. In it I explore the question that leaders sometimes put to themselves (and to their coaches): ‘Who am I if I don’t have the answers?’
The question is about both identity and performance – at the very least. While a leader is judged on the results they achieve, achieving outcomes rests in turn on a broader underpinning than just getting things right – notably process, meaning and system.
Some leaders see this as a quest to transition to a new identity – and while we all have multiple identities, that quest can be challenging. The journey requires authenticity, self-care and self-compassion.
