Fear is the root of dysfunctional leadership. I hope by reading this, you have awakened more to that reality; which, in turn will help you: (1) become a more effective leader, and (2) abolish fear from your culture so that your leaders and employees can be at their best.
The reality is that each of us, in our own ways, are engaging in fully justified thinking and actions that are ultimately limiting our experience, effectiveness, and performance.
You can assess the collective mindsets of your organization, department, and/or team. This blog post presents a copy of a report that I put together for an organization where we assessed their collective mindsets.
What is sad is that dysfunctional leaders are of the mindset that they are doing their best. They don’t realize that their largely subconscious desires cause them to be dysfunctional in their decision making and actions.
If you do not have healthy mindsets, those around you know it, and they respond just as much to your mindsets as they do your behaviors. Stated differently, those you lead care more about who you are than what you do.
How do we become a great leader? We become someone others WANT TO follow. In this blog post, I am going to give you three recommendations for becoming someone others WANT TO follow.
What many do not realize is that our responses and the effectiveness of our responses lie not in our ability to process information or in our communication abilities. The effectiveness of our responses lies in the mindsets that we possess.
In my previous blog post, I wanted you to feel excited about finding a place where you can receive guidance on how to unleash the best version of yourself. In this post, I want to introduce you to a community that can help you do just that.
Do any of the following describe you?
- You want to excel at life by doing what is truly important, not just what is urgent
- You want to be a positive influence in the lives of those around you
- You want to be the driver of your life and future, and not just the passenger
- You want to become someone that others want to follow and be influenced by
- You want to develop a stronger or clearer purpose for your life
I say YOUR blog, because this blog is for YOU. I want it to be a place where you visit to become YOUR VERY BEST!
We may or may not have met. Regardless, I know something about you. I know that somewhere within you, there is an element of you that hungers for greatness, and is waiting to be unleashed. You may have started freeing this element and have empowered it to positively impact the people and world around you. Or perhaps, this element is something you are keeping under wraps. Regardless, you likely (1) feel scared about fully unleashing this element, (2) don’t know how to fully unleash it, or (3) both. This blog is designed to help bring out your innate greatness, and it is an honor to be a part of your journey.
