Notes from: 

When ‘More, Bigger, Faster’ Is Not BetterBY TONY SCHWARTZ

What we really want from leaders is authenticity tempered by compassion.

What we want most of all, I believe, are leaders capable of embracing their own opposites — and our own — with nuance and subtlety.

What’s been valued instead is decisiveness: a bias for action, transaction and speed.

To become a conscious leader, you have to aspire to be one. Personal growth is no easy thing and usually involves some pain.

Adult development doesn’t have to end at the age of consent, or when we finish our formal education. We can learn to see more deeply, through our fears and self-deceptions; more widely, beyond our self-absorption toa more inclusive capacity for care and concern; and longer term, past our immediate preoccupations and short-term cravings.

I todays fast pace world, it is heartening to see the desire for self reflection and authenticity being valued again.
