Akaya Windwood of Rockwood Leadership Institute asks “What might be possible if we were to listen for our own and each others’ wisdom (which comes from the heart) contrasted to looking for the expert in ourselves and each other?”
Years ago before taking up the work of leading Rockwood, I was an organizational consultant. I was paid to be right – to be an expert. However, as I sit here at my current desk, I realize how very little I really knew about the everyday running of and caring for an organization. Now I’m not going to disparage or disrespect the work I did during my many years in organizational development, but I must admit that I would be a much better consultant today, having been in this seat for awhile.
