All of us have moments in our lives as children, teenagers, in our early careers or more recently, situations or experiences that were big and may have stopped us in our tracks. Or indeed the smaller things that happen time and again, having a compound effect.
Sometimes these things aren’t obvious to us, we just work around them and develop our own unique ways of managing and coping with certain reactions and trigger we have. It’s only when we stop, and really start to work with our own unique patterns, that make us who we are, to open up a whole new world of self-leadership with impact.
By breaking down these patterns we are intrigued to take a closer look.
- They drive and inspire us
- They help us to operate at our best
- We will be drawn to them in others
- We will aim to demonstrate them in how we operate
- Some of them are obvious, others maybe not be until we explore them closer
Some of mine include imagination, inspiration and movement; affability, benevolence and those who take charge. All elements which hopefully shine through in how I operate, challenge and develop leaders, as well as the reasons I do what I do!
Can you identify what some of your principles might be?
