Are You A Thermostat or Thermometer?
If you have been following my blog, you have heard me discuss the concept of being a leader by title or deed (or both).
Today, I’d like to discuss the concept of being a thermostat or a thermometer – the former is someone who has a ton of energy and can change the temperature of a room just by entering it, the latter is someone who is an expert at reading the room and taking its temperature.
I think this is a very interesting dynamic to bring to the table. Leaders need to have a heightened sense of self-awareness and understand at which points they need to be a thermostat and at which points they need to be a thermometer.
The key pieces for leaders are: know thyself and know the situation. Think about this as you’re coming up with your 2019 strategy and be mindful of the situations you are entering and what they call for on your behalf.
