Our lives are segmented into two basic worlds, our personal and our professional. These two worlds define us, shape us, influence us, and they hold deep and meaningful impacts on who we are. Our perspective and perception of these worlds holds a great influence on how we continue to develop as we move through life and the resulting interaction with those worlds.
" Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another" John C. Maxwell
"There is a difference between being a leader and being a boss.
Both are based on authority. A boss demands blind obedience; a leader earns his authority through understanding and trust." Klaus Balkenhol
I have learned that being a leader is holding the ability to create a vision and inspire those around you to follow it on their own volition. Leading for me is bringing a group together, showing them the goal, and allowing them to arrive at it under their own power and thinking.
A true leader is one that is chosen by the group for the group's well being. Leaders are either chosen by the group or appointed by those that are disconnected by the group. In either situation, it falls upon that leader to earn the trust of the group and garner its respect in order to properly lead them. Leaders accomplish this through various methods. We work with those that seek a group connection that will promote: team building, communicative behaviors, problem solving, team structure, and open thinking. We work with the horses to better understand how we as individuals understand leadership and how the group functions as a herd. Herd mentality is one that always looks for the betterment of the group while maintaining the individual personalties. This mentality allows the group to thrive and not simply survive.
Being able to access one's intuition allows us to better understand and work towards the group's succcess. Intuition is the part of us that we regularly ignore, but that can aid in understanding what is best for the team. Being able to access this and combine it with our rational minds will better make us a whole and more complete leader that can intuit the group's needs and promote the success of the team.
Understanding our emotional agility is to incorporate our minds potential. Utilizing this style is in stark contrast to the simple management style which utilizes only one aspect of our mind. Emotional based thinking is thinking without a box at all. This type of thinking integrated with our rational minds allows us to find the best solutions to challenges and choose the right people for the task at hand. It allows us to deepen our relation with our team in order to better understand what they need to be successful. Utilizing our rational left brain mind-set as well as our emotional right brain mind-set creates a more complete leader that can work towards the group's benefit.
