Effective leadership is one that draws from the strengths of others. It is about awakening what is half asleep inside people. This requires that we inspire people to discover their innate abilities. In a corporate setting, such leadership is crucial to business success. The ability to unleash people’s potential, to energize them to use their talent and to work towards a common goal is the master skill of a true leader.
Leadership is about making leaders of your followers and unleashing the spirit of empowerment and involvement.
There is so much richness within each person to be discovered. Until it is discovered, it will forever be absent from the workplace. It is the role of effective leaders to nurture this richness.
What we choose to believe is a decisive part of how we experience life.
Here are three aspects of belief creation and its impact on our lives.
1. Subtle yet powerful mechanism – Your beliefs are often molded before you are even consciously aware of them. And almost as imperceptibly, you start subscribing to them. The belief roots deep within you, and with every experience or situation, you add on more substance and drama to it. Gradually it becomes a fundamental premise of your life and a filter for all your life experiences.
2. Using the belief as a shield – Once you start believing something, you can settle back in your comfort zone and feel absolved of the responsibility to try something different. Plus you can hide behind it every time you are asked to try something new. So belief often becomes a facade for obsolescence and complacency.
3. Self-affirming phenomenon – The universe is an open field of potentiality. What you can imagine, what you want to believe, you start creating. In short, whatever you focus on becomes stronger. So if you believe you are creative, then your intent, your approach, as well as all that you attract in your life, including people and situations, work towards re-affirming your belief.
