The Leadership Transformation Journey (5 of 6): Inner and Outer Game

Pratap Nambiar, Executive Chairman of Singapore-based Leadership Coaching & Consulting Company Thought Perfect, throws light on the leader’s inner game and how it connects with the outer game.

Usually leaders focus almost entirely on the outer game which requires investment of time and effort in learning new competencies to try and overcome the external challenges.

However, most external challenges are difficult to control. What can be controlled is the way they respond to them- this requires a strong internal process of reflection and introspection, creating a new way of being.
