Thinking differently is the prime requirement of leaders when facing challenge. In his book first published in 2015, Matthew Syed explores the fields of aviation, medicine and law and explains where thinking differently and learning from (multiple) failures has lifesaving consequences…lessons often learnt at significant human cost. The path to success is through multiple failures. Failing doesn’t make you a failure – quitting does; not learning from it does; refusing to get back up when you fall does. I have referenced so many examples from this book in 2017 in leadership talks and on leadership programmes…where are you failing already in 2018 and how will you learn and grow from it?
Advent is a season of expectancy and preparation for Christians. As your navigator I’m curious to know how you’re preparing for your 2018 leadership journey. your navigator’s Advent Series 2017 is my collection of 16 reflections, insights and inspiring perspectives that I hope equip you for 2018.
