What makes one leader highly effective and another average in the same workplace? Why do some leaders inspire their followers while other leaders repel them?
Answer: These leaders are Self-directed and Aware. How are they defined?
- Self-directed leaders decide what to think and how best to act constructively, rather than having their thoughts and emotions influenced and controlled by the moment, by others or by external circumstances.
- While emotions overwhelmingly drive behavior, self-directed leaders know that emotion and logic are intertwined and know how to balance both in everyday situations.
- Self-directed leaders do not get caught in defensive thinking when they feel the need to defend. They know the best defense is to think offensively.
What does this mean for you? You know how to easily engage followers • build a team that delivers consistently • refine your soft skills for unrivaled performance • drive ‘self' and organizational effectiveness • turn mental and emotional chaos into order • deal effectively with uncertainty and high-velocity change • make the most of opportunity and be more effective in the face of adversity • intentionally brand yourself so others don't • develop mental toughness
Based upon the success my clients are experiencing with this developmental model of self-directed leadership, it will increase your productivity by at least 20% guaranteed and expand your awareness.
Although I support competency based models, performance management, and training programs, I found that sustainable success relies upon personal responsibility for one's own career/job development and a personal plan in combination with organized approaches. My process can help you get to where you want to go. Call 603-818-9209
It is vital to keep your presence of mind,
maintaining your mental powers [of awareness, focus, and mental strength],
whatever the circumstances…
Learn to detach yourself from the chaos of the battlefield
[and the mental and emotional turmoil of daily business].
