Many of my clients prepare for elevated leadership roles in our work together.

Although we focus on a number of things, from where to build greater influence to how to become increasingly more strategic, the most important ingredient in their ascension is likely the time we spend brainstorming on what it could look like, on which roles, existing or not, might best use their talents and drive, which of the biggest problems they want to tackle, what work is most engaging and rewardingly challenging.

The fundamental requisite of bold is its conception.

Yes, there must be some platform, some foundation, from which to leap.

And diligent action must follow.

But without considering what could be, we simply won’t get there.

Because we haven’t seen it.

Bold requires all kinds of things: skill, smarts, savvy.  Experience.


But most of all, it requires time.
