ABOUT SEASON SEVEN:
In this season, we’re going to be talking about the timing of leadership, which is all about answering the question of when. Time is a precious resource, a nonrenewable resource. So, learning how to use time, leverage it, and turbo charge it, both in our life and in our career, can be a game changer.
DISCUSSION GUIDE FROM TODAY’S EPISODE:
- This episode is both sensitive AND important. What are the key angles to understand?
- Time is a non-renewable resource, and you have do things right with regards to time. You have always be thinking about time, “about managing your clock…”
- More often than not, the time is NOW. There is no longer too much waiting for tomorrow…
- Time in the context of AGE and time. We still think we have to do things based on our age, in traditional terms.
- Time and age are being decoupled. In fact, we are seeing more “reverse mentoring” these days.
- You can trapped into operating under rules for the different generations…but at the end of day, you just need to know your team. There is more IN COMMON amongst the generations than NOT in common.
- We need to discuss LIFE STAGES. Life and careers can now be cyclical. These days, you will likely have “multiple” careers.
- You have to invest time to be sure you are spending your time on a meaningful path you want to be on.
- It can be a good idea to take a sabbatical, or at least some time off, to really think about these things, and be sure you are living your best life and doing important work with your time.
- Really important to think about sequencing your experiences in your career, and to get those experiences as early as you can. Get a lot of different looks at the (business) world!
- Good leaders, people who can become trusted advisors, MUST have a diverse collection of experiences to draw from when providing counsel and advice.
- Modern leaders needs to PUSH their people into this, since their critical role is to develop future leaders.
- Is there a tension to resolve around the time of your life and career? Are you just a practitioner? Or are you going to be a philosopher AND practitioner? Knowing this will determine what kinds of experiences you should seek out.
