Overshoot

It’s the nature of things to overshoot after stressors. Your psychology, or organisations, are no different. Find the right amount of stressors and the right amount of rest. The development happens by itself.

Stressors are not always a bad thing
Rest isn’t always lazy

Lead the way you trust your body

This is also why you should lead your organisation, team, or life as you lead your muscle growth. You don’t control it and you have not a clue on how it works. You do know how to influence it. You create the right conditions so your body cells, or other people, can do what they are here to do.

This also shows why trust is so fundamental to effective leadership. Trust people like you trust your body to overshoot after the right kind of stress.

You control nothing
You influence everything
