Sometimes, it can be beneficial to take a deep breath and reevaluate what we already know. So, InnerWill has compiled excerpts from some of our best blogs!
“If we are living in a VUCA world, we will need volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous organizations to match it. If we are courageous, we will evolve as the world evolves , although it is scary to move from a place of control to a place of uncertainty. As we look in the mirror and ask, “Why can’t we innovate?”, like everything in our lives, if we want change, change starts with us.”

“The longer we are in leadership roles, the more important it is to develop those who come behind us—the young leaders who will ultimately take our place and ensure that leadership becomes more than just a title, but becomes a choice others are equipped to make. When we meet them where they are, we bring the kind of feedback, coaching, and mentoring that fits their role and experience.”

“Did you know that our brains are wired for negativity and these sabotaging voices are normal? Everyone has them! Jessica Herrin shares, “According to the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California, we humans have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts a day and as many as 80% of them are negative.” How do we tell these sabotaging voices to take a hike or to turn the spinning, unproductive thoughts into sources of positivity?”
“Learned helplessness essentially impairs our ability to see that we have any control and therefore we falsely claim the power and control resides outside of ourselves. Unlearning helplessness means taking back the control and power. It begins with awareness, requires hope, and depends on action.”
“Recently, I found myself half way through our fiscal year struggling with accountability for some of the commitments I made six months ago. With that awareness came the understanding that I bear the responsibility for the lack of progress on my goals (SEE IT & OWN IT). I realized that circumstances, distractions, and excuses were roadblocks to my desired results. This awareness was an important step towards transforming my thinking.After seeing it and owning it, it dawned on me to ask for help by enlisting an accountability partner.”
