“There are people who prefer to say 'yes' and there are people who prefer to say 'no’.
Those who say 'yes' are rewarded by the adventures they have. Those who say 'no' are rewarded by the safety they attain. There are far more ‘no” sayers than “yes” sayers, but you can train one type to behave like the other."
“A practice-based approach moves us away from unattainable ideas lf perfection or fixed goals and allows us to become more compassionate, particularly to ourselves. The emphasis shifts from trying to avoid mistakes, to learning from them. Instead of ‘Is it right?’ we start to ask ‘Does it help?’ Framing leadership as a practice also starts to erode the unhelpful notion that it is an innate ability.”
