How pure, how refreshing and how honest. I was asked to meet a seasoned CEO yesterday and a high performing CFO today here in New Zealand. The purpose, to discuss my Intelligent Leadership (IL) Executive Program.
During our meeting I asked a question......
“Why do you want to do a leadership program with me?”
and this was there responses which made a huge impact on me.
Seasoned CEO “because I know I am not quite the leader I want to be Nick”
High Performing CFO “because I want to invest in my own leadership development and grow myself as a leader”
How powerful is that.....To hear those genuine responses from 2 very senior execuives......why would I not want to partner with them and support them to be the very best.
Yet again it goes to show - truly exceptional leadership starts with you doesn’t it.
Look after yourself and each other,
