How to Lead with Trust

I am a Ken Blanchard fan.  Years ago now, I read his book The One Minute Manager, and since then have given it many times over to staff as a gift and part of their professional development.  We also use the One Minute Manager as a resource in some of our Leadership Coaching programs.  A couple of days ago I read his article Connecting the Dots: Trust, Leadership and Engagement.  From the Foundation of Trust to Leadership as a Driver to Engagement is the Goal; to say it is compelling is an understatement.  And it's all based on people centred leadership.  I share Blanchard's Trust Boosters and Trust Busters here.  Take a look and see if you boost or bust trust in your everyday leadership and conversations.

Are you Leading Above the Line?

Living and leading ABOVE THE LINE is a powerful place to be.  This is the world of our true or 'higher self'. It is where we are able to move into a place of power - good and effective power that is! When we live and lead ABOVE THE LINE, we take charge - we choose our responses (rather than auto react) to people and situations, we take ownership or what is happening and accept what is happening, without feeling sorry for ourselves or feeling like a victim.  A few year ago I completed the challenging program of Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway based on the work and book of Susan Jeffers. This is where I was first introduced to the Above the Line Model.  it was an Ah ha moment for me and it has had a profound impact on me, my life and work.  And as a result on those around me too. Take a look here to see the model .....

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!

One of the Best Books. I vividly recall reading the book, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.  It was from this book that I claimed the mantra - "No matters what happens, I can handle it!" This mantra and belief have popped up in my life to date many times over and I have also shared it with others.  

Fear is a Part of Life. Once you take on board that Fear is a part of life and you can't make it go away, then really anything is possible. Just got to learn to have it along for the ride. Many people get caught up in fear based self talk and it literally stops them in their tracks.  And sadly they never move out of their comfort zone to try something new.  Pushing through your fear threshold is what life is all about.  Question for you - when was the last time you felt fear and did it anyway?  Be honest. Read on to see the 5 Truths of Fear and see how these work for you.

A Simple Meditation Technique

Meditation or "dhyana" is a form of concentration. It allows your mind to to focus on one thing and to detach from what's going on in the world around you.  Its like finding a safe place in the eye of a storm.  And when practised regularly it can contribute to the relief of stress and anxiety - things which build up in all of us over time. Let's face it, not a day goes by when we don't feel some sort of stress, so to be able to pause for a few minutes each day and sit in stillness has to have benefits.  Benefits Research tells us that regular meditation creates a calmer person, decreases feelings of anger, supports our nervous system, helps us sleep better, regulates our emotions and helps us to develop greater concentration.  With all these benefits, who wouldn't want to give it a go. We include meditation as part of all the Leadership Programs we develop - YES right alongside topics such as communicating for success, developing your brand, dealing with difficult people etc etc and people love it!  Here is a simple meditation technique for you to try, love to hear how it goes for you.....
