Great Mindful Leaders Do This
We are so busy teaching leaders ‘what they need to know’ that we’ve lost sight on the single biggest thing that gives a leader the edge to overcome obstacles in the face of demise, thrive even more in the aura of success, and uncover the hidden elements that limit accomplishment.
Strong leaders have a dimension that doubtful leaders do not – they know, develop and nurture who they are by handling their own discomfort. Only when they can solve the puzzle of indecision can they have the unwavering certainty that leads to confidence.
Knowing Who You Are
Your success as a leader hinges on knowing who you are, no matter where you are seated at the table. Certainty comes from finally facing the roaring inferno you have been turning away from.
This means you might have to admit that you need to listen better, understand how your behavior is a result of what you aren’t facing and stop expecting outcomes that are tied to a shallow vision.
Arrogance is not Confidence
Arrogance is making decisions without thinking. Leaders can err too much on the passive side as well. Thinking you can win the war by letting the soldiers lead themselves is just delusional.
So what are the tools that build confidence? The concept is simple. The execution is harder. Don’t do. Just be. Every innovative thing that was ever created was an abstract concept in its infancy.
In business you know that measuring results is not the only metric for success. You have to know the drivers of those results – the things to eliminate and the things to underscore for the best return on investment. Mindful daily practices are the best drivers for a leader.
