Here at Let's Lead, we've had enough of 'Not Good Enough'. A quick question for you that I am encountering in my fascinating new work. Being a professional leadership transition advisor working with early careerists/practitioners and teams to accelerate work and life success has many learning, reflections, questions. The underlying theme: what is holding back life and work performance fulfilment, is this feeling of “not being enough”.
Where is this coming from?
Not pleasing a parent, a coach, a professor, a boss, a friend.
Something has stuck deeply in the mind from what could be years ago …the words, the experiences, the actions that shape us.
It has a grip so tight it is holding you back from imagining a better future. What are you seeing in your world? I know there is a lot of writing on this topic, and I cannot learn fast enough, yet translating this to the individual or team sitting with me is real right now.
Here is the question I would like your take on:
Do you see this notion of “not being good enough” impacting you, your team, your children?
