Leaders see opportunities easily. So easily in fact, that they often do not see problems. They are able to switch thinking
so quickly when faced with what one person may see as a problem to see it as an opportunity for growth, learning, or change.
A question to ask yourself when problems crop up in your life is. "What is the opportunity in this?"
As we begin to see more opportunities our thinking itself shifts as does our conversation. We find ourselves speaking differently
and notice that we start then to even see other's problems as opportunities. Before you can even comprehend this you begin
to seek out "problems" that others are having to help them see the opportunities that abound.
When a leader is able to encourage and influence those around him to see opportunities, to embrace them, to get excited about
the possibilites there is hope. Hope that as we all see opportunity in things around us that we are focusing on context, on
environment, on relationship which is the white space surrounding the situation. This ensures that we see the broader whole
of a system. Leaders who can see systems enable systemic change which transforms and improves our world.
