Lessons Learned

Conscious Leadership

How to engage your tribe/organization 

Working for over 20 years with 500+ leaders and their companies, listening deeply to them and to their co-workers and other stakeholders, taught me some valuable lessons. Today I share those lessons with you.

The most important lesson is:

It is all about YOU!

 

You founded the company and/or your lead the company.

People are looking at you.

They expect something from you:

Expectations

E

To lead them. To lead them with a vision, clear, powerful, unwavering. 

E

To involve them. To listen deeply, with an open mind. To listen for insight, not for (dis)agreement. 

E

To choose. To choos wisely and to explain your choices. 

E

To trust them. To let them do their work, their way. They are professionals. You hired them.

E

To inspire them. To make them want to be part of this. To make them want to be an ambassador.

E

To hold them accountable. To know that they have to give the best of themselves. Because you do, all the time.

And what does it take?

E

To have a clear compass, consisting of your soul’s mission, your core values and your highest vision.

E

To walk your talk, no matter what.

E

To lead from trust.

E

To raise your consciousness, to enable you to zoom out, have a different perspective, be wise and compassionate, whilst keeping your boundaries and your vision. 

E

To listen to your intuition and trust your gut. 

E

To be authentic, vulnerable, open and honest.

E

To be fully present. To listen deeply, with all your senses.

E

To take full responsibility. For everything. Always. Dismiss the victim in yourself, for ever.

E

To stop pleasing people. You have a vision, what other people think about that doesn’t matter. Lead from the inside out, from your compass, not from the outside in: from other peoples opinions.

E

To be courageous. Dare to be different. Dare to decide. Dare to slow down. Dare to come back on your decisions and admit that you were wrong.

This is not for the faint-hearted. This requires courage, endurance and focus. And lots of self-reflection, self-relativity, and humor.

Just in case you need a sparring partner, trusted advisor, mentor, let’s talk:
