You may have noticed the trend towards self-awareness and mindful leadership. Arrogance and bullying are OUT and mindfulness is IN.
Harvard Business Review has a new category that recent articles fall under: “Managing Yourself.”
In their book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves discuss the four skills that make up emotional intelligence. They are: self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management. The first two are about personal competence and are about you. The last two are about social competence and are about how you relate to other people.
My new coaching program Mastering Your Inner Game for Business Success is designed to guide you in this excellent adventure towards personal competence and self-mastery.
Mastering your inner game means being the boss of you. Your emotions, reactions, and poor habits no longer get the best of you. You don’t take things personally. You don’t fly off the handle and say things you are sorry for later. You become a powerful, authentic and caring force of nature!
This is what self-mastery would look like—but most of us are not there.
We all have poor habits and ways of being in the world that hold us back from achieving our optimal productivity and happiness. These inner patterns drain our energy and keep us from living our best lives.
Are you open to doing the most noble work of all—working on yourself?
By transforming your self-sabotaging habits, you can have more energy, focus, and time to do the things you love. The people around you will be happier too!
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.
Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
– Rumi, 13th century Persian poet and mystic
When you as a leader or professional engage in personal growth work, you become more magnetic, present, and approachable. The more inner work you do, the more productive and effective you become!
You step into being a visionary leader and a highly influential rainmaker. People will clearly see the quality of your being and your charisma.
There are countless habits and inner patterns that inhibit our success. Do you know yours? Likely it has been haunting you for decades. I’ll list some habits that limit you in order to jog your brain, but it certainly is not a complete list:
Lack of organization
Difficulty making decisions
Poor diet and self-care habits
Discounting others and their contributions
Low physical energy (linked to poor self-care habits)
In my next blog article I’ll share the six steps to change these limiting mindsets, habits, and patterns that get in your way.
