I shared this on my Insta Story the other day but never really got the chance to elaborate. Here's something that I've learnt from great leaders during my Bangkok trip. It was something that was shared a few times, so it got me curious.
Sidetrack: The Chinese language is such an amazing language that I never really appreciated until recently. 5 characters - it rhymes and holds so much depth.
Here's my takeaway and realisation from this:
Being independent is relatively easy for me. I can pick up most stuffs quickly and able to execute things on my own - and sometimes, I tend to want to do things myself for fast execution. But I didn't realise that at times, I was also operating on solo mode - i.e. I'll figure things out myself, I'll handle my own sh*t, it's OK - not like people can help me anyways (in that matter). But because of such mindset, it also causes a gap between me and my team. It may also seemed to others that, I'm unwilling to share my challenges - this causes my team to feel alone in this journey when they are faces with challenges of their own.
When this was shared, it highlighted the differences between independence and being a lone wolf. I want to build and mould a team of independent, proactive, caring leaders willing to serve and add value to others, but I want you to know that you're never alone.
I count on you to do what you need to do. Reach out if you want to. Ask for help if you need to. Be vulnerable. We'll catch you when you fall.
