Time to Change Course

Certainly there are times when you run into roadblocks or obstacles and simply redoubling your efforts will allow you to push on through.

But then there are those other times. While you may be reluctant to let go of your original plan or vision, an alternative course of action may be called for. Sometimes that’s an external course of action…doing something different or taking a different path forward. And sometimes it’s an internal course correction…a change in the way you view the situation or relate to the people or processes involved.

Airplanes, sailboats and great leaders all make course corrections in pursuit of a stated objective. If you find yourself hard up against something unyielding…a step back to gain perspective…and another look at the terrain may prove beneficial.

Effective leadership requires the agility to find alternative paths forward. How might you need to course correct today?
