14 Jan Letting go to get a better grip
By Dan Hammond, Chief Disruption Officer, LIW
‘I’d like to cancel my subscription to this year… the 7-day trial is enough’ was a popular meme after the first week of 2021. While there are terrible events happening outside our control, we have the opportunity to make things a little better.
Despite the concerns about a limited Christmas / holiday season due to COVID, most people I have spoken to actually found it more relaxing than usual. I realised that we often strive for a defined, ‘perfect’ version of this occasion and lose the pleasure of it in a race to get everything ‘right’.
What does this mean for leadership?
We often hold onto things so tightly that we forget the real purpose of them. What could you release in order to get a better grip on the new year?
