Welcome to Season 5, Episode #3 of Discover the Leader in You!
This episode is Part 2 in a series about the practice of leadership shifting from the norm to a place beyond the status quo. When leadership is described, you rarely hear the concept of leading with heart. However, a truly effective leader cannot afford to lead without heart and compassion. Why? Because leadership creates the need to influence someone towards a desired goal or preferred outcome. When that outcome is hard to accomplish, a leader must move beyond the status quo while cultivating a follower’s motivation to push forward. This requires heart indeed.
Out of the Heart Leadership Flows
The discussion of a leaders heart has often been taboo, but many of you know what a strong proponent I am of making sure the fullness of a leader is developed and that his or her practices are examined for congruence. Why? Because at the end of the day, a leader will lead from their heart…therefore, it must be healthy.
Five Points of Growth in Leadership
Back by popular demand, Dr. Bob Rausch enlightens us on the aspect of growth that we all need to explore…continued alignment with our purpose.Why is purpose so important? Purpose creates in humanity a sense of alignment with something greater than ourselves and when we are out of alignment we run the risk of searching for far too many things to justify the feelings that we have churning inside. Ultimately, that searching can lead to debilitating problems or place us on a life course that can prove problematic. Do the work to establish a greater understanding of your purpose and how it can align the energy that you have on the inside that will propel you toward your destiny
