I once heard a presenter at a conference, a consultant, declare without reservation or hesitation, that they were smarter than their clients.
My first thought was, “How incredibly arrogant.”
Because I was thinking of my clients.
They’ve often been coaching members of their teams, their clients/customers, and their colleagues, for years. Not as a ‘coach’ per se, but as mentors and confidants, as reservoirs of organizational savvy and good judgment, as highly experienced and respected leaders.
They’re incredibly smart.
So why bring me in, why partner?
Because questers are also learners.
And they know that they don’t always know.
Or can see.
And that is part of what makes them so successful.
(This was such a clear theme when I interviewed leadership exemplars for The Making Magnificence Project®, that when the interviews turned into a book, it took up an entire chapter on Questing for Self-Mastery, Chapter 7. Stay tuned, brand new conversations for The Project coming soon! )
