According to management thought leader Herminia Ibarra, the only way to grow is by stretching the limits of who you are.

Leading figures from a variety of fields describe the transition that had the strongest impact on their leadership identity

“Doctors’ waiting rooms were good places to ask myself a lot of questions about the kind of life I was living.”

Arianna Huffington,
Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief, The Huffington Post

"The transition that had the strongest impact on me came in 2007, in the form of a painful wakeup call. Sleep-deprived and exhausted, I fainted, hit my head on my desk, and broke my cheekbone. In the wake of my collapse, I found myself going from doctor to doctor, to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond ex- haustion. There wasn’t, but doctors’ waiting rooms were good places for me to ask myself a lot of questions about the kind of life I was living. I had other times when I should have woken up but didn’t. This time I really did and made many changes in the way I live, including adopting daily practices to keep me on track. The result is a more fulfilling life, one that gives me breathing spaces and a deeper perspective. And as a leader, I’m much better equipped to transcend upsets and setbacks."
