LEARN THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LEADERSHIP, INFLUENCE, AND MOVING PEOPLE TO ACTION
Unleash your leadership potential.
How do you define the word ‘leader’? Does it depend on your title? Your salary? Your scope of power? If so, then why have we all experienced “leaders” who have demonstrated epic failures in leadership? The way I see it, leadership is something deeper than that. Leadership is a behaviour, an attitude, an action that sets you in motion through conscious choice. It’s a mindset; perhaps even a lifestyle. The kind of lifestyle that affects every part of your world. That kind of leadership has the potential to change your world.
Think about it. What if you lived your life with the belief that you are your own greatest leader? What would that mean? What could you do?
You won’t be able to change the past, but you could design your future. You could take charge of your life with 100% responsibility and 0% excuses. You will be more accountable and responsible to yourself and to your highest potential. How will you see yourself? How will you serve others?
The biggest difference you can make in your world is through your choices and how you engage with others. The biggest difference you can make in your own life is through your beliefs and how you engage with yourself! What does it mean to stand up for what you believe? To have big dreams and pursue them holistically? Won’t you step up?
What does it mean to be a leader?
When I was twenty two I started my first business. By twenty four I was able to build one of the largest sales organisations with 21 office locations and over 500 people working. I learned leadership by doing leadership. I stepped into the role of inspiring people and as a result the productivity increased and sales turnovers
escalated. The impact of motivating people was measurable. There was always a 30% increase in sales every time, you motivate people to aspire higher. One thing that I learned early on is that you don’t manage people, you just inspire them to embrace a compelling vision. Then the magic happens.
One of the greatest responsibility vested with leaders is to develop more leaders. You don’t grow as an organisation, if you don’t develop leaders. First you grow people and people will grow your business. I believe each and every person
has the capacity for incredible leadership over their own life. And once you reach a level of self-mastery, you can step into the leadership role of nurturing others. The journey of leadership starts with personal leadership and progressing to leading people.
Leadership is a learnable skill.
Unfortunately, not everyone seems to realize this. And sadly companies expect people to do leadership without teaching them how to be an effective leader.
That’s why I speak, write, train and coach leadership. I am passionate about developing leaders. Take a minute to explore the site or contact me to find out how I can best serve you and/or your team. I can’t wait to hear from you!
