The conscious leader is free to ask.

He does not lead others on a merry dance. He does not expect others to know what he is thinking or what he wants if he hasn’t expressed it.

When the conscious leader is unhappy, he himself identifies what’s missing; he formulates what he wants, and then he asks for it.

Most importantly, when he asks, he grants the other person full permission to respond freely. Then he deals with the response he gets. He helps them to prioritise in order to meet his request. Sometimes, he lets go of his request; sometimes, he repeats it; sometimes, he takes it elsewhere.

He does not manipulate to get what he wants. He knows he is free and he allows others to be free too. There is no politics around him. There is movement. Things don’t get stuck.

The conscious leader feels free to ask for what he wants, because he accepts what he gets and lets go of what he doesn’t get.
