It all starts with awareness – the moment each one begins to understand what lies behind their contradictory feelings when they feel they must divide themselves into what they want and what they must do, between what they feel and what the rationality requires, between what they like and what is expected of them, between being themselves and pleasing others.
Authentic leaders are working hard to develop self-awareness through constant exercises and often courageous exploration of self. In order to be authentic it is necessary to know who you are.
Şi abia după ce am înţeles ce se întâmplă în interiorul nostru ne uităm şi în afară, la relaţiile cu ceilalţi, la posibilele conflicte, declarate sau nu. Because most of the time external conflicts mirror deeply inner feelings, they have roots in the profound layers of our life. And how much energy do we lose in these conflicts? What if we would put this energy in service to our goals?
In both cases, internal conflicts – external conflict, we are talking about two parties. And when we think about solving a conflict it is important to understand the positive intent of each party and it is necessary for both parties to want to solve the conflict. As it takes two to tango, it also takes two to live in harmony.
