How do others see you as a leader? Do they see you as more of a "little engine that thought he could", or an "Eyore." Eyore, that pessimistic donkey in the Winnie the Pooh cartoons once said, "thanks, but I'd rather stay an Eyore." In this week's podcast Bill and Ed discuss the concept of being a possibilist leader. Author Rob Hoskins uses this term to define leaders that have several different characteristics in common. Hoskins says, "This type of individual holds loosely the reality that both bad and better exist. It takes this kind of balanced leader – someone who recognizes both the good and the bad – to move a community forward and bring sustainable change to their world."
In this episode Bill and Ed discuss how we as faith empowered workplace leaders should adopt a possibilist attitude concerning leadership.
