Navigating the Paradox of Leadership

  • Increase your mental flexibility so that you have a greater range of options in any situation.  See “panoramic” solutions vs. “telephoto” ones.
  • Navigate the conflicts and contradictions that you encounter in your job.
  • Learn to identify whether an issue is a problem to solve or a situation to manage.

Every day, leaders have to live on the continuum that falls between visionary and do-it-now.  They have to sort out whether something is a problem to be solved or a situation to be managed.  They have to see things from the company’s point of view and the other person’s — the employee, the customer, or the vendor.  In Navigating the Paradox of Leadership, performance coach and Olympian Dr. Megan Neyer provides tools for expanding your problem solving “peripheral vision,” seeing more solutions or management options, finding the appropriate balance between optimism and skepticism that allows for action and provides a balance for good decisions.  She also provides usable guides for determining when to quit analyzing and begin acting.  The results are well-considered, timely decisions that work.
