I wrote an in-depth piece answering why we as a culture and as individuals tend to lack initiative, as developed in my book, and how to develop more initiative. It presents more from my book than most reviews or excerpts I’ve posted.
The piece is called Initiative: Why We Lack It and How to Develop It and appears in a community site for coaches and people getting coached called The Coaching Connector.
I recommend it if you’re looking to create more initiative in yourself and teams and haven’t read the book yet. Also if you’re thinking of getting coaching.
