Are you Above the Line or Below the Line? That is the question that really matters!
The concept of above the line and below the line is a simple but most effective concept in leadership and behaviour mindset.
Above the line approach occurs when any individual is open, curious, and committed to learning. Below the line often occurs when someone is closed, defensive, and committed to being right.
Above the line thinking is where someone takes Ownership, Accountability and Responsibility for themselves and below the line is where there is blame, excuses and often denial.
Embracing an above the line approach to life transforms the way you perceive and interact with the world in general. By not being defensive, not assuming that you already know everything there is to know and not feeling the need to have the last word on any topic opens up world of opportunities. Above the line behaviours and thinking encourage and empower you to ask questions we might not like the answers to, but whose answers will ultimately help us learn, develop and grow.
