The Core of Leadership: Mindset
Leadership is rooted in mindset because work events are generally unpredictable. Effective responses in such moments depend on a leader’s solid sense of self.
Beyond Tools and Techniques
While tools and techniques are important, they are secondary to a leader’s conviction about the right course of action. Without the right mindset, even the best tools can become irrelevant.
The Importance of Action Logic
Leaders should focus on their “action logic”—how they are behaving in everyday leadership situations. Their attentiveness to relationships, commitment to growing others, and intolerance of disrespect define them.
Creating a Supportive Environment
Sheridan Resolutions aims to challenge senior leaders, encouraging them to reflect on their development and make good decisions for both themselves and their organizations.
Moments that Define a Leader
Leadership is about instinctively asking what would be helpful in a given moment. Without this core conviction, opportunities for impactful leadership are lost.
Evolving Leadership Beliefs
Leaders must ensure that their beliefs and actions are aligned with their current roles, discarding outdated thought patterns and adopting new ones.
The Power of Language
Language shapes perception; therefore, effective leaders focus first on mindset and its expression through meaningful conversations.
