There is always a way to move forward. There is always a way to progress. There is always evolution. And it is most efficiently completed together in unison.
One of the great advantages in management is having the ability to reflect and ponder the past. It is in the moments of being busy and overwhelmed when it is perhaps the most opportune time to slow down and listen to what has been done. The past is full of lessons. The past is full of experiences to learn from. And these lessons and experiences are normal – they are part of the business process and human experience because they are moments that teach us how to move forward. These are the moments to teach us to progress toward a better future, toward a more prosperous future, toward a more stable future, and toward a more inclusive future. As a business leader, it is crucial to use these defining moments to your advantage and make forward progression. If the opportunity is not taken, it is so highly likely that the mistake will be repeated until the lesson is learned. The lesson has presented itself for a reason, and it is the role of the business leader to recognize the opportunity presented in order to make lasting and successful change.
A crucially important business leadership skill is the ability to slow down, listen, reflect, and put into practice learnings from the past. To be able to use the past to one’s advantage, and not disadvantage, will bring a sense of continuity and sustainability to your team. Exploit the lessons of the past toward a more prosperous present and future.
