Describing your Outer Game and Inner Game

Sherry Good morning,

Next assignment on deck. Question below. Following text is from Mastering Leadership Chapter 3

Two games and three domains of leadership effectiveness

Today leaders need to be effective in three areas (see Figure 3.1):

(Outer Game) Leadership Process. This is the science of leadership and the domain of management. Leaders are responsible for the allocation and effective utilization of resources: people, time, and money. How effectively they allocate and use these resources impacts organizational effectiveness. To effectively utilize resources, leaders deploy management systems that include business cadence, strategy, direction, execution, process, metrics, and decision making. Without an effective management process in place, the business is not organized for success.

(Outer Game) Leadership Competencies. These are the competencies required for a leader to be successful. We describe this as the outside game of leadership. We will review the competencies that are most strongly correlated with effective leadership later in this book.

(Inner Game) Leadership Consciousness. This is the inside game of leadership. It is the leader’s inner operating system—what drives the leader, how they define themselves, what is important to them, what they believe. We will address this in detail throughout the book.

In high-pressure leadership roles, we might assume that the outer game is the only game; however, it is just the tip of the iceberg. What is happening beneath the surface is mediating and organizing the effectiveness of the outer game. The inner game consists of:

Our meaning-making system—what we use to make sense of the world.

Our decision-making system—how we analyze, decide, and act.

Our values and spiritual beliefs.

Our level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence.

The mental models that we use to understand reality, think, act, and create.

The internal beliefs and assumptions making up our personal identity—the system that we use to know who we are, and to define and deploy ourselves into circumstances.

Together, these aspects make up the complex internal system by which we relate to the world. The more well-honed the outer game, the more effective we are. The more mature the inner game, the more effective we are. Both are required for mastery. Mastery is a well-honed outer game arising from a very mature inner game.
