Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Leadership requires that our external behaviour be a clear reflection of our inner landscape. This is a case of I DO AS I AM. Leadership requires authenticity which means being truthful to self and to others – completely.
Leadership requires core foundational elements. We need to be prepared to:
- Be self aware and be prepared to embrace personal change – understand our emotional health levels and resultant behaviour
- Understand the value of ‘your story’, and be able to share it
- Inspire others to produce their best
- Encourage diversity
- Manage change and conflict
- Celebrate success
Leadership is therefore a journey of self mastery. The functions we perform and the roles we undertake are then beneficially infused by this mastery. In this way we contribute substantially to our families, our communities, our organisations and to the world beyond.
