Many leaders are passionate! Passion without a clear purpose is wasted energy and does not produce innovative solutions. In order to amplify, that is harness and exponentially increase the impact, of your passion, you must attach it to practical solutions. Think of solutions as the fuel, and your passion as the muscle car barreling towards your magnitude of mission. Put the wrong gas in your high performance leadership engine and you won’t be living to your full potential, but knocking and pinging, sputtering really, while the hybrid passes you; (no offense if you drive a hybrid… 😉
Mapping out practical solutions that are realistic, and simple is critical. You do not have to hit a home run, nor reinvent the wheel necessarily. What’s differentiates you as a leader is your capacity, and ability to implement your passion and carry it out in a way that is in the most alignment with who you are. The solutions that work best are a cumulative total of small pieces, put together in a way that maximizes your leadership potential, so it’s a best fit, with who you are.
