Shift: Why Your Leadership Needs This More Than Ever.

June 19, 2017 by Alton Webb

It started with a conversation with someone who was in the early stages of starting out.  There were lot’s of things they needed, but there was something about the interaction that made me want to share about a shift in leadership that I’ve experienced over the past couple of years.

Regardless of where we are on our journey Outside, we all experience similar situations:

– asking a trusted advisor for advice

– sharing our vision with a potential team member

– stepping out when it’s easier to stay in

When we start out, we start out as the “doers” — the “doers” of everything that needs to be done.  But as we journey, there’s a noticeable shift, one that is more than just building a team around us, or reading the newest book on leadership.
