What is perfect leadership?

Wabi-sabi is a Japanese philosophy often described as appreciating the beauty in imperfection. Any attempt by me to describe it succinctly won’t do it justice but broadly speaking it is associated with impermanence and imperfection.

Wabi-sabi in daily working life doesn’t require us to be an expert in design or philosophy. It’s a shift in perspective from one that chases perfection to one that appreciates what is.

There is no such thing as a perfect coach or a perfect leader of people, there is no such state whatever articles on Inc or Forbes and social media that put leaders on public pedestals lead us to believe.

Perfect isn’t the point, the key is to focus on continuous learning and developing yourself and your team. Improve your strengths and work on your imperfections but don’t expect them to disappear entirely.

Focus on continuous learning to improve yourself and develop your team.
