Participate and Observe at the Same Time


When participating in important conversations, try to use part of your attention observing. No matter how engaged you may be, send a small piece of your focus above the scene to take in the discussion, as if from a birds-eye view. This enables you to notice and correct your own issues, see things from more sides, determine what’s truly needed from a leadership perspective, and to guide the flow accordingly. In short, make it a practice to observe even as you participate. Your larger field of vision will help eliminate self-created obstacles and propel others toward more creative and effective outcomes.
