017 Breaking The Leadership Mold – 6 New Trends
Breaking the Leadership Mold: 6 Trends Today we discuss leadership trends. They are entering the workspace and they will change the concept of work itself. 6 mold-braking leadership trends. 1. Leading with your heart Call it intuition, heart, values. It's about using your inner human and universal knowing and beliefs to lead. That’s all I’m asking. When you use what drives you as an individual to lead your team, it will be appreciated. Actually, people love that! 2. Paying People well above market What did she say? I said: Pay People WELL Above Market. Why would a company do that? To get the best, most engaged and hard working people. I today’s world, if you think your company will thrive while paying people wages that don’t even cover the basics, you are in deep trouble: people will leave as soon as they find a better job out there. Guaranteed. It’s that simple. If you’d like further inspiration about this trend, get the audiobook Passion and Purpose by John Mackay, CEO of WholeFoods (AMZ). Or watch for free: https://www.texastribune.org/2019/02/28/conversation-john-mackey-video/ 3. Give your cell phone number to ALL your employees "But I have hundreds of employees, she must be joking." I’m not. Give your cell phone to all your employees and return their call. See: Michael Lastoria https://www.inc.com/magazine/201905/sheila-marikar/pizza-michael-lastoria-washington-dc-mobile-automation-robots-fast-casual.html What about opening up a special line where you record your thoughts of the moment and people can leave you a message. Go see what SARK does on her inspiration line +1(415) 546-3742 (a US number). Her website is http://planetsark.com/about-sark/ At the time of writing, I called and SARK sends us love and reads a poem. She’s had that practice for more than 25 years! She changes the message every few weeks or according to her inspiration. Most of all she changes lives, the first one being her own. The point is, if you want to know what people think and need, why not do that? Give them info, give them hope, explain who you are, what you believe in. Doesn’t that beat a survey? Beeing human. Feels good eh? Invite them to leave a message. Some will some won’t. One thing is for sure: this is unique. It makes you a unique leader AND it gives you the pulse of what is going on in people’s hearts and minds. Yes, you are that kind of leader. 4. Focus on People rather than profit or bottom line You see, the point here is that profit and bottom line will follow. "What did she say?" Does this woman have an MBA like she says she does? If you’re thinking I’m not making sense, I want to pray for you (well, I don’t really pray but you get the meaning). Money and profit are not the only important things in life. My point here is stop thinking about tha money, think about tha people! 5. Take your time Let's stop the stress, the crazy schedule, let's not be a victim of our corporate life. Running around like a panicked chicken? What’s that? Is someone dying over there in your company? No? Why not chill down, find a way to control panic. If you panic, you make your people panic. It’s that simple. Please, take your time. Pace yourself, pace your team. Go fast sometimes but know when and how to slow down. If not, you are constantly triggered and so are your people and that my friend, is a call for disease to come in. I’m not exaggerating. Look up Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton and Dr. Lissa Rankin to learn more. 6. Take Risks… • Make things right • Say what your heart believes • Be bold and outspoken • Use your emotions and beliefs at work • Remove your protective shield • Be your vulnerable everyday self That closes the trends that we will see in the world of leadership sooner than you think. I know you’re capable of being that kind of leader. Leaving the old leadership paradigm behind and embracing who you truly are. Simple. Feels risky but it’s not, trust me.

015 Leadership As A Lifestyle
What if leadership was a lifestyle? I went to sleep last night with this inspiration in mind. It came from all those Instagram feeds that are so successful and that are lifestyle oriented. I like them too. For me, leadership is a lifestyle. It’s a way of being at all times. My way of being. Its carrying my values in professional and personal situations and events. Its improving myself as much as I consciously can, daily (well I try). It’s also about missing the mark and feeling I should have been kinder or not as harsh. I know I can be harsh sometimes. I’ve been configured like that for years as I thought that this is the behavior that was expected of me. More on that in the podcast version of this blog. But what about going back to the true, soft spoken gentle original soul I was a long time ago? My true self. How is your true self? That would be self-leadership would it not? I would lead self before ever thinking I would lead others or situations. The other dimension of Leadership as a lifestyle is being Responsible and that never goes away. I’m responsible for my business, my feelings, my reactions, my son’s wellbeing, my relationships (or lack of) and my moods. I’m responsible to deliver what my clients are expecting as much so in terms of behavior and in terms of output including making sure that quality is in “everything”. Yikes. That’s pressure. But is it really? Is that not what I want to strive towards? Is that not part of my motivation. After all, I’m not a victim. So this is only a few words about leadership as a lifestyle. Let me know in the comments if that’s a subject that you want to explore further with me….
