Leadership should never be a trend
Leadership can never be a trend, but rather a step towards deeper consciousness.
A conscious approach to what authentic leadership means for a person who accepts a managerial position in this day and age, combines roles to effectively guide their team(s). This means the leader is connected to their soul and heart, along with being able to guide with the support of their mind, while still listening to their inner self.
The leaders of the future have the courage and ability to step out of their comfort zone.
In the framework of most managers’ comfort zones is thinking in terms of business goals, strategy and results. These are familiar concepts that can be quantified and measured with little resistance for most managers.
The manager’s role is to lead people and direct a business in a certain direction.
Future leadership development requires the ability to be able to control and lead simultaneously, and has everything to gain from challenging the manager’s comfort zone. The challenge lies mainly in understanding the importance and value of self-awareness and becoming aware of your inherent abilities. It is the leadership role’s abilities that create success.
Step out of your comfort zone, challenge your limits and develop your leadership role
To discover your inherent abilities, you must have the courage to surpass your comfort boundary. For increased awareness, you must allow yourself to be in a constantly evolving environment. Your learning is an ongoing process, which means the concept of taking short courses is outdated. The main focus of future leadership development is personal development – a process that is constantly ongoing and evolving.
