Many leaders and elites do not understand we offer class on how to deal with stress and stay healthy. We do so because many leaders and elites cannot sleep under stress, which takes away their leadership and performance. Although it is not directly related to leadership, “unable to handle stress & insomnia” can disarm leadership and performance. It is only by knowing all direct and indirect factors associated with leadership, we can develop leadership efficiently. Do you agree?
Many issues in leadership development are intractable due to partial approaches. For example, when addressing conflict management, most people would think of leadership styles, skills or EQ. In fact, conflict management also involves vision, structure design, rule creation, and more. Unless you know what is available, what is underutilized, it is hard to improve conflict management efficiently. A sharp mind and high energy are always fundamental.
What looks complex may be simple if you can get to the root causes. For example, many leaders are interested in Authentic Leadership, which is “Be Yourself” leadership, not “Be Your Best” leadership (Level 5 leadership). “Be Yourself” is the first step to “Be Your Best.” In order to “Be Your Best,” you need to build more efficient internal and external structures. How to do so? By evaluating every direct and indirect associated factor, getting to the root causes, and targeting issues with the right tools, which is called the 6Q Whole System Approach (WSA).
The above principles also apply to team performance. The team will be stronger and tougher if they can stay at their optimal level of function. They can grow faster and better through the WSA. To do so, you first need to overcome development bias and look at all direct and indirect factors associated.
The challenge and responsibilities leaders and elites have to face today often require them to be at their 100%. We empower leaders and elites to strengthen society. The more complex their issues are, the better the WSA stands out. Give yourself or your people a try, and Be Your Best!!
Together, we can change the world for the better.
