I've been thinking a lot lately about the persistent challenges I face in my work life. Meeting after meeting with leaders and staff, pouring over data sliced and diced all different ways, brand new strategies that are not being used widely in my industry, and many more hours just wrestling with these challenges in my mind have me thinking about my corporate culture. But this time it feels more personal. I'm the type of leader who doesn't take too many things personally in my work life. But when I can't solve a problem in a reasonably short period of time it starts to get me more worked up.
How About You
When you're battling a persistent challenge in your work life do you simply work harder; or, do you open your eyes a bit wider (as I'm trying to do) and see the unlimited potential in the diversity around you?
I'd love to hear from you.
