Okay, perhaps I began with an overstatement when implying that there are thousands of steps on the road to leadership. Or did I?
When reading ‘ABC or 1-2-3-4-5 steps to success’ type of books, the world of leadership can look manageable and simple for a while. However, every now and then these assumptions seem to be challenged by everyday issues. We suddenly identify a huge number of development tasks along our leadership path. Or sometimes we may even feel that we are retracing our steps due to one unsuccessful moment.
I’m sorry to repeat this, but this is not how things generally work
