Wise Choices

My thanks to you for taking a moment to pause and reflect with me on some notes about wise choices. 
Wisdom. It's an idea that's proliferating fast in the business world. How about the practice where you are?

My thanks to you for taking a moment to pause and reflect with me on some notes about wise choices. 
First, thank you. If I could, I'd be looking you in the eye with a heartfelt smile right now. Thank you for choosing, day after day, to lead yourself and others somehow to a better future.
The call for wise leadership surely comes from an urgent need to get better at creating positive change in our world.

How do 
you know when “wisdom” is happening? What can you notice? What value does wisdom add to your daily practice of leading? What sustains you when it gets tough? 

The bigger the challenge, the more attention you have to pay to what will keep you in the game. How do we access wisdom in a state of overdrive or overwhelm? 
Working with leaders, I’m curious about how wisdom arises in the interplay of accountability and compassion. What kind of leader are you when you stand for compassionate accountability and for accountable compassion? 
From where I stand, I see that wisdom has to be more than a nice idea. It makes something happen. Wisdom goes beyond knowledge. It asks questions about meaning, responsibility and the purpose of our knowledge. Wisdom looks beneath the surface of things. It is an ability to discern inner qualities and relationships, to perceive underlying truth. Wisdom considers the wellbeing of the greater whole.

Wisdom describes an aspect of our power as human
beings, not just human doings. Wisdom is an embodied quality, a way of being attuned and tuning in. By some definitions, wisdom does not exist apart from love.

What if leadership rooted in love – rather than rooted in fear – became an emergent norm in business? We create that road by walking...imperfectly, humanely...together. So I thank you.
