During another coaching conversation, when I was open to go deep and explore some of my stuff, I’ve realized that I’ve seen myself as a follower, not as a leader.
And in my mind it was “either/or“, not “and”. An exclusion, not an inclusion. It didn’t occur to me that I can be both, depending on the context. What that did for me was to make me give myself permission to alternate between the two roles. When I need to step up as a Leader, I am more than capable to do that, when I need to follow, the same. Huh.. I can be both.
