Your leadership is solid when you are self aware and grounded

July 16th, 2017 · Comments

One of the issues that sits just outside NLP is leadership: NLP is concerned with managing one's one state and performance and influencing others, but it is not specifically concerned with questons about what makes a good leader or how to be a leader while figuring out your own state or strategy.

In this ten minute podcast, we start with a simple (not easy) idea: when you focus on the part of you that knows what you want and is aware of your resourcefulness, then the other parts of you tend to move into the background. In the same way, when you show yourself to be strong, centred, and purposeful, other people will rally around you. You might not think of yourself as a leader, but managing your own state and intention will often cause people to follow you.

This gives you a chance to align yourself with leaders who are both effective and ethical. While others try to look effective and ethical, you can simply be aware that you are already these things. That frees up mental energy for generating solutions to tough problems.
