Want to be a resilient leader? Accept what is.

Reflects the strength needed to lead

You feel it sometimes. Maybe often. Expectations that you need to be the strong one. The balanced one. The calm one. Of being the rock in the storm.

Each time you’re the voice of reason in times of conflict, or have to give difficult feedback, or to make a painful decision, or to lead others once again through uncertainty and change, you feel it.

Why New Age leaders lead from the heart...

Leadership is undergoing a rebirth of sorts. A new age. A transformation within that has been fuelled by incessant transformation without.

Leaders of today and of the future are not just expected to do more with less.

That your true potential, success, growth and joy lay out there, just beyond the Risk Zone? Would it change things?

Make your feedback count by making it wanted

Gate with danger sign signifying fear of receiving feedback

"Feedback is the breakfast of champions", as Ken Blanchard famously said.

To develop, to grow and to win, feedback is essential.

Reality of the matter is, most leaders struggle with providing it. And while they may search inside themselves for answers around this, I believe it actually lies more with the "vibe" that it creates.

Reflecting back on my many year in business and as a leader, I realize that some of the strongest leaders I've been exposed to were not in people leadership roles at all. Not managers of people.

Conflict can engulf us, if we let it.

Conflict often arises because of doors that we open for ourselves.

Ever noticed that the vast majority of movie and TV plots would not exist if the main character simply ignored the knocking door?

In a past article, I wrote about the influence judgment can have over our ability to lead. To judge is human. As emotional beings judgment is, if nothing else, an emotional response to our environment. On a deeper level, it's a protective mechanism.

Caterpiller changing to a butterfly signifying growth and potential

We all remember those strong leaders we've encountered in our lives. Their impact lingers because that's the nature of true leadership.

I learned early that the strongest leaders see beyond the immediate need. They see potential. Not just of the worker but of the individual.

Brick wall with hole signifying vulnerability

Vulnerability is one of those words that immediately stimulate a guttural response. Conjured up is the fortress wall breached. A teeming, angry hoard pouring through full of malintent.
It's a word that one typically connects with danger.
