PerceptionA necessary precondition to clarity - and the powerful thinking it enables - is the ability to perceive - clearly and fully. Similarly, the quality of one’s actions is a function of clarity - that combination of perception and thought. The innate ability to continually expand the scope and deepen the level of perception is the hallmark of a great leader. In our increasingly interconnected, global environment, such skills are becoming a basic requirement.
ThoughtOur thinking, as well, must rise to match this increased level of perception and the clarity it affords. It, too, must be able to handle the increased scope and depth required to set strategic direction and make strategic decisions in this increasingly complex environment. Most of all, in order to enable communication and action, it must be simple - a simplicity that can only be achieved via clarity.
ActionFinally, our actions, as the evidence of our clarity, must extend naturally from our understanding. When a leader is both clear and congruent, an organization trusts in their judgment, in their capacity as a leader, in the course they’ve set and the decisions they’ve taken and this trust permeates each individual’s feelings, thoughts, and actions.
Increasing our awareness, manipulating and enhancing that awareness via thought, and acting in congruence with our resultant clarity - all of these are innate human capacities - capacities we’ve simply been taught to ignore. It’s time, now, to remember them. We’ve developed tools and techniques to enable you to consistently do that.
