Wayfinding Leadership

Chellie Spiller and her co-authors, Hotu and John, describe the benefits of becoming a wayfinder leader as including:
- deepening your discernment about what is really going on and be more response-able to subtle shifts and nuances, as well as see the whole. In other words, see the wood and the trees
- developing integrative thinking and perceptiveness, and seeing connections between things that possibly others don’t see, making sense of complexity
- developing personal grit and courage and helping others develop their own grit
- honing the ability to work with resistance, shed rigid mental models and enter new paradigms
- adapting more naturally to change and harnessing the potential of uncertainty, ambiguity and the unknown
- experiencing greater relaxation, presence and calm, especially in the face of adversity
- experiencing and enjoying feelings of awe and wonder in the leadership journey.
