As much as leading is a responsibility and a privilege, it is an art and a craft.
When you watch the best footballers play (RIP Diego), the ball looks like it’s just an extension of their body. They are so natural and comfortable with it, it really doesn’t sit apart from them at all.
I see exactly the same with the best leaders. They get so comfortable with leading that it is simply an extension of who they are.
The beauty of this is that when circumstances and contexts change, they don’t let go of the principles of their leadership, but simply adapt to make the most of where they find themselves, and bring out the best of those who are around them.
But becoming that comfortable with it, like watching the most sublime sportspeople, takes a lot of intentional effort and practice.
So when you get hit by Covid and a shift to remote working, if you’ve trained those muscles, you adapt more easily even if you need to change the mechanics of how you do some things.
