7. Leadership Mindtraps - Part 1

Episode 7 is part one of our discussion into Unlocking Leadership Mindtraps, a tremendous book by Jennifer Garvey Berger. These Mindtraps are ways of thinking that inform how we see the world. They once protected us and shielded us from the complexity around us. However, in our current world, shielding ourselves from complexity is no longer helping us thrive, but trapping us…prohibiting us from thriving.

In this episode, we look at the Mindtraps of:

  • Simple Stories
  • Rightness
  • Agreement
  • Control
  • Ego

What are they, and how to recognize them.
