A quote in French today
Je ne suis capable de contrôler que ce dont j’ai conscience. Ce qui échappe à ma perception me contrôle. C’est pourquoi l’ouverture d’esprit renforce mon pouvoir.~ John Whitmore
Which would approximately mean "I'm only be able to be in control of what I'm aware of. What is beyond my perception controls me. That's precisely why openness strengthens my power."
Great leaders know the key role of perception and always try to grasp any aspects of situation by practicing active listening, trying to obliterate any kind of bias or prejudice and their openness and clarity of mind is often well received by those they lead.
Well done, Mr Whitmore !
