Everyone Needs Help Sometimes. People Are People.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned in 20 years working with leaders in every sector you can think of all over the world is this:

People are people.

Yup. That’s it.

Whether they call themselves CEO or business owner or founder or managing director or some crazy made up title that they figure makes them stand out or anything else.

 

People are people.

The deep, unspoken fears and anxieties of the entrepreneur starting to build a team feels exactly the same as the fears of the Global Head Of Whatever taking over an international project team.

The business owner secretly worrying if this new initiative – even though it looks great on paper- will really work…. feels exactly the same as the Fortune 500 CEO taking their company through change.

The entrepreneur losing sleep over why their team just doesn’t seem to be proactive in delivering results… feels exactly the same as the National Director wondering how on earth they can drive up revenue with the people that they have.

And all the while the nagging doubt: what if it’s me. What if I’m the bottleneck. What if I can’t do this….

….What if today’s the day they find me out.

People are people.

 

No-one’s got it completely figured out.

Most people are either scared or pretending.

Everyone needs help sometimes.

And so while some coaches like to work with labels – “the C suite” ,”top teams” or whatever the current jargon is (it changes over the years) ….

….I meet aspiring business leaders where they are.

As people.

People with hopes, with fears, with aspirations and ambitions for themselves, their families and for their businesses.

People who want better business results than the ones they’re getting.

People who understand that as leaders, they have the biggest impact on their businesses, and they don’t take their responsibility lightly.

As people.

Because behind the labels we give ourselves and the self promotion and the hype… it’s all we are.
