So you want to be a better leader?

How many of you wish you could spark that magical something to ramp up your leadership style, your career potential or your profile credentials?

Have you been sent on, or enrolled in countless leadership style ‘How To’ type programmes or courses – only to realise you pretty much know the theory anyway?

We can all draw up a list of qualities we believe a good leader must show. In fact many of us could probably write the basic content of a ‘How To’ type workshop ourselves…..BUT something gets in the way doesn’t it? Some deep subconscious clutter, picked up over years of conditioning, comparing and criticism just seems to run the show every now and again and take us off the track of being the sort of leader we think we want to be, should be or need to be

Over the past 2 years, since leaving my corporate career to re-design my own life to be more fulfilling, more flexible and more fun, I followed my early passion for Psychology to become a full time Performance Coach. I’ve been working one to one with CEO’s, entrepreneurs, business owners and senior directors to help them perform better in their roles, create more success, and enjoy their lives and relationships more fully.

What I already knew about leadership ( from leading in my own senior director roles ) and what I have learned since from working with other leaders in a coaching capacity, is that there really is just one zone, just one single element to learn and to implement – and from that all those other qualities and attributes just flow freely…..MENTAL CLARITY

Mental Clarity

The ability to access that inner state of Mental Clarity, at will, on demand and ongoing is the ultimate formula for ‘Serenity & Success’.

This is how it works – from a state of ongoing and entrained Mental Clarity, I promise that you simply cannot help but to demonstrate the following ‘deep drivers’ of Leadership:

  • Authenticity
  • Direction
  • Resilience
  • Intuition
  • Wisdom
  • Creativity
  • Presence
  • Connection

And low and behold, a natural by-product of these deep drivers can’t help but flow into these familiar ‘Leadership Attributes’ we are sent to learn ‘How To’ mimic on those courses and programmes:

  • Agility
  • Good Decisions
  • Strategy
  • Innovation
  • Problem Solving
  • Influence
  • Strong Relationships
  • Integrity
  • Passion
  • Purpose
  • Vision

The difference is, from an inner platform of Mental Clarity, we are doing it for real. We can stop thinking about ‘how’ we are supposed to do it, and just get in to our own authentic flow.

Subconscious Clutter

That old subconscious veil of clutter, confusion and doubt was secretly all driven by fear – albeit subtle in some cases – but fear all the same. Muddling through a medley of ‘resistance to what is’ and ‘attachment to what should be’ can be draining, and it certainly gets in the way of inspiring and authentic leadership and of a sense of inner ‘Serenity & Success’.
