Where Being In Charge Begins: The Core Of Leadership Development

NON-reactivity is a great Leadership Skill.





NON-reactivity is a great Leadership Skill.

It is actually the true core of an effective leader’s training.

“Non-reactivity” means, essentially, that your initial response to any event is “relaxed emotional neutrality”.

This state places you in a true leadership position, because to be in charge begins with being in charge of yourself.

 When people or circumstances make you react, they are in charge.

NON-reactivity is a great Leadership Skill.

To be REactive means that you slip into an automatic reaction rather than a purposeful, strategic response.

 A reactive leader ignores goals,
needs and strategy.

 Strategic responsiveness, which means acting with purpose or aligning your response with needs and objectives, represents the essence of leadership.

A relaxed state of emotional neutral gives you access to your most resourceful leadership capacity.

NON-reactivity is a great Leadership Skill.

You can think more clearly, observe more accurately, and respond more strategically than when a reaction of stress and strain seizes hold of you.

In other words you lead more effectively when you respond with peace and poise than when you react with automatic emotional intensity.

Reactivity consumes leadership power.  Stress and strain produce an energy-drain.

Reactivity not only undermines your individual effectiveness.  As a leader you role model your mode.  So when you react, you model a draining, non-strategic mode of work for your followers, and lead them away from the positive work model you want them to demonstrate.

For example, a reactive mode always drains motivation. You lose your positiveNON-reactivity is a great Leadership Skill. attitude for as long as that reaction lasts.  As a consequence of the example you set, your followers are bound to demonstrate lower morale.

Non-reactivity empowers you to lead others, to lead yourself and your life more easily and enjoyably.

Non-reactivity is not merely a leader-skill to “believe in”.  It is a one of those “best leadership practices” that requires continual long-term exercise to develop.

Automatic reaction patterns are habitual, and habits that have been in charge for a long time can take a long time to weaken.

Whether opportunity or opposition befalls you, practice dealing with it in a state of relaxed emotional neutral.  From that point of peace and poise you can:

  •  Choose your response strategically
  •  Avoid the negativity and drain of stress and strain
  • Model higher performance and a more positive attitude
  • Direct events and lead people to more easily and effectively.

A relaxed state of emotional neutral gives you access to your most resourceful leadership capacity. Achieve a higher level of leadership success with more ease and enjoyment through by exercising the indispensable leadership skill of non-reactivity.

Trust The Power of Peaceful Confidence

A Positive AttitudeTrusting yourself, trusting your life, is the foundation of a positive attitude that leads to positive results.

It’s important to develop the patience needed to trust the time things take, including the time it takes for an idea to pop into your head, for things to change, for an opportunity to arrive.

When we face dire straits, like going broke, dealing with a serious illness, or losing someone we love, trusting that it is okay to see no way out can be extremely difficult to do.

And yet, developing self-confidence, courage and faith at that heroic level is also extremely important to do.

We need to avoid or stop worrying, because filling our head with thoughts of pessimism and dread leaves no space in our mind for our solution to arrive.

When you have no idea of what to do about the future, live in the now, confidently trusting that things will work out in line with what you want to happen.

Don’t give up on your great goals, even when it seems that the bottom is about to fall out; but also don’t stressfully struggle to figure out a way to be successful or even a way to avoid failure.a patient, positive attitude for success

 Give up on your FEARS!

 Holding onto imaginary scenarios of what you do not want to happen:

  • Plagues you with unproductive, unhealthy anxiety
  • Steals all your joy and capacity for deep, rich gratitude for all of your blessings
  • Repels from your heart and mind your “inner light” of guidance
  • Manifests conditions that match your frightening inner visions
  • Wastes the creative mind-power of your imagination to manifest the success you desire

When we face uncertainty, particularly when grave risk is involved, it can seem unreasonable, irresponsible, and maybe even insane to live in the present, with inner peace and confidence, and without a worry about the future.

But in that state of confidence and inner peace your body can do its best work of healing and staying healthy.  You can relate lovingly and patiently with the people in your life.  And the power of your confidence exerts its “magical” influence over your destiny, HELPING life meet or surpass your greatest expectations.

 Develop a patient, positive attitude for successWhile it may seem that maintaining your faith in the face of danger is crazy, it is worrying about a frightening future POSSIBILITY that more accurately characterizes insanity.

The future that you fear is not real. It is an imaginary condition that you relate to as real as long as you worry about it.  It is an UNREAL condition and living within it causes you to suffer.  Now THAT’S crazy!

When facing danger of any kind, including financial problems, health issues and relationship challenges, even when the eleventh hour seems to be closing in, make your faith PRACTICAL by living in the now, with confidence.

Be at peace, alert to recognize when your mind comes up with a solution or your circumstances reveal your “open door” of opportunity.

Motivational Speaking To Yourself For Wisdom

Just about everyone has heard of motivational speaking, but how many really understand the power of motivational THINKING, and how to access it?

While developing communication skills for our interpersonal relationships is an essential part of personal development for team building and leadership, success and great family relationships, the most important dimension of successful communication goes on between you and yourself!

How you think is how you communicate with yourself.

You speak to yourself with mental words and pictures.

To solve your problems and come up strategies for success, you basically consult with yourself.

You formulate a problem or a goal and then you ask yourself, “Now, what can I do about this?”

But, the way you feel impacts the way you think.

The time to engage in strategic thinking about your life is when you feel truly emotionally balanced, in a calm state of harmonious feeling.

Then you can think clearly, accurately and constructively.

When you think in a state of emotional balance you can use your power of thought to direct your life.

You can think about what you want to accomplish and come up with ideas of how to accomplish it.

We can define emotional balance as the foundation for an authentic, positive attitude, turning you into a motivational speaker for yourself: one who can tune into positive thinking for problem-solving, goal-setting and goal achievement.

If you feel blocked or unable to solve your problems or arrive at strategies for success, check on how you are feeling at the time.

Your attitude, mood or emotional state represents the key that either locks or unlocks the mind’s potential for accessing positive solutions and successful strategies.

As long as you feel nervous, uptight, impatient, frustrated, insecure or disappointed, your thinking can do no more than reinforce those disturbed emotional states.

 By letting go of your tensions and intensity and simply trusting that everything is going to work out fine, you render accessible the creative ideas that can show you the way.

Developing the SELF-communication skills of thinking from calm instead of from stress is a way of applying team building and leadership in your relationship with yourself.

When you feel calm, secure and trusting, your state of inner harmony and balance will open your mind to positive thinking for problem-solving, goal setting and goal achievement.

By following this self-help wisdom you will receive motivational speaking from your mind, bolstering your spirit with real solutions and strategies.
