“What is impossible is an answer, a solution, not yet imagined.”

The call to leaders today is to shake off the rust, the malaise…

  • It can’t
  • If only
  • I don’t think
  • I don’t have the time
  • Maybe
  • I’m afraid
  • I don’t believe

We need leaders today who inspire greatness, grit, and good old fashioned willpower to say these instead:

  • I can
  • I will
  • I know
  • I will make the time
  • Absolutely
  • I’m confident
  • I’m sure

It may be the time to gather your team and spend half a day doing these:

  1. Challenging one another to pursue what’s possible
  2. Shifting the narrative of your vocabulary to a leader’s vocabulary
  3. Pushing forward rather than making excuses
  4. Keeping the pressure on for creativity, innovation, and differentiation
  5. Being relentless in making change and pushing for high performance
I love what one company has on their wall as people enter the facility:
In our Unleash Healthy Emotions for High-Performance Teams program, we address the “I can’t syndrome”. We unleash critical skillsets like resilience, inspiration, stress management, well-being strategies, agility, and emotional health for today’s top performers.

Soft skills? No way.
These are hard-edge leadership performance skills.
