The story of the four frogs

It is a hot day and four frogs are sitting on a log.

One of them decides to jump off into the cool refreshing water.

How many frogs are now sitting on the log?

Four. 

Because deciding to jump is not the same as jumping.

This is why Inner Leadership not only helps you to remain calm and focused in a crisis, see the situation more clearly, find more options to move forward, and choose the best of them. It also shows you how to build the inspiration that will enable you and your key stakeholders to move to action. Because the decision is not truly made until you act.

Do you know someone who says they have decided to do something but hasn’t actually done it yet? What would happen if they felt more inspired about their plans?


Adapted from Inner Leadership: a framework and tools for building inspiration in times of change.
