Shot 34: ANIMAL INSTINCTS

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 1 year ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

WHEW!  TRACKING VARMINTS with natural instincts gets real difficult.  They seem to always be one step ahead.  How do they do that?

You have probably seen leaders with instincts.  They show up when planning, decision making, strategizing.  How do they do that?  We might not know, but over time we get the confidence to follow.  Let’s guess about their source:  1) experience—wisdom that comes from having been around and seeing trends; 2) natural strengths—gifted talents; 3) urges, desires, and impulses resonating with and emanating from one’s real self and profound passions.  (That last one is a bit complicated, I know.)  Intuitiveness:  When you have it, go with it.  When you recognize it in others, leverage it.
