As a leader, you face decisions, and then you face defining moments when you have to dig down to your core values and choose a certain path.
You know you’ve hit a defining moment when you confront questions like these:
- “Who am I?” The decision at hand forces you to define your personal identity.
Note: There are no correct or incorrect choices. You’re dealing with matters of vision and purpose.
- “Who are we?” That calls into question your organization’s role in the marketplace.
