Today, I’m featuring a guest blog post.
“Personal Leadership: Leadership from the Inside Out”
By Mooniek Seebregts, CenterOfinnovationForLeaders.com
We see that the title of leadership, whether CEO, manager, entrepreneur or supervisor doesn’t mean that the person is courageous, honest, authentic and aware. We hope they will be but it is often not the case. Being in a position of power and leading from expectations, ego, and the desire to control is NOT leadership. Who wants to follow someone who leads from a place of dominance instead of understanding? And then we secretly reject or don’t want to follow that person. Have you known mediocre leaders who don’t function well because the are not inspiring?
So what is the confusion? The confusion is this – most of us think that leadership is about “controlling others,” that leadership “looks a certain way,” that leadership is about “delegating,” “telling others what to do,” “having authority,” “talking a certain way,” “having a certain lifestyle.” That is an old, persistent way of thinking and acting. Did that thought start in the Industrial Revolution?
At the Center of Innovation for Leaders we believe that you cannot lead others successfully until you lead yourself first. We are passionate about bringing a broad understanding about Personal Leadership to every individual, so that every person can thrive instead of survive. So that you can thrive. So that you can grow versus repeating your past over and over again. Great things happen when people understand Personal Leadership: teams become successful and individuals feel fortunate!
There is inner work that must be done to become a successful leader who others want to follow. It is not something one can learn by reading about it and then adopting a different leadership “style.” It requires self-exploration and the bringing forth of our best qualities and expression of our core values. When the outer leader reflects the expanded inner human being, growth and success in all areas naturally follows.
This year, on October 27, 2017, we are having Sacramento’s 4th Annual Personal Leadership Conference. This year’s theme “Personal Leadership: Our Stories” will focus on the stories that make us take a stand, become significant, put our best forward, and inspire others?
