Leadership throws you beyond your comfort zone. Are you ready to fly? Show me a leader who depends only on experience and I will show you failure. But show me a leader who acts beyond his experience and I will show you runaway success. The most common leadership mistake is to leverage only what you know. The most common leadership success is to leverage the unknown. Your challenge is to handle complex situations beyond your experience. You have to make choices about the future. You are expected to find solutions for your team and the organization. You need to make choices about where you spend your time. You need to get your team aligned in the same direction. You need to build key relationships both internally and externally. You need to get people to accept responsibility. And, you have do all this while you maintain your sanity among competing demands. Catapult provides you the tools to succeed when you are hurled beyond your comfort zone.
