Also, I mentioned earlier that I had a question for you…

The question is, am I hooked or am I clear?

Am I hooked or am I clear? This is an intelligent question to ask oneself from time to time, especially when under pressure, lacking sleep or when your nutrition or diet is poor. Whenever you experience fatigue or stress, the more sophisticated parts of the brain become vulnerable and can get hijacked by the primitive, yet powerful reptilian brain. When the reptilian brain takes over it ignites the oversimplified responses of fight, flight or freeze. This can be disguised in emotions and thoughts that we automatically identify with.

The cost? Bad decisions, which can lead to bad results or bad relationships. The most powerful leaders and top athletes, it happens to us all. Sometimes we are too low on mental bandwidth or energy, and our brain gets hooked. Once it is hooked, that counter-productive internal dialogue can take over. How to counter this? You can read more on this topic from my article on agility.

“It doesn’t happen to me”, some might say. But, what about your people? And, what is the cost for you on that account?

Harvard Published author, Susan David writes,

Leaders stumble not because they have undesirable thoughts and feelings—that’s inevitable—but because they get hooked by them, like fish caught on a line. This happens in one of two ways. They buy into the thoughts, treating them like facts (It was the same in my last job…I’ve been a failure my whole career), and avoid situations that evoke them (I’m not going to take on that new challenge). Or, usually at the behest of their supporters, they challenge the existence of the thoughts and try to rationalize them away (I shouldn’t have thoughts like this…I know I’m not a total failure), and perhaps force themselves into similar situations, even when those go against their core values and goals (Take on that new assignment—you’ve got to get over this). In either case, they are paying too much attention to their internal chatter and allowing it to sap important cognitive resources that could be put to better use.

I have a natural ability to see the potential in people. Somehow, we are all like uncut diamonds. Executive coaching can accelerate leadership and talent development. Business results, leadership and the manager’s personal strengths and challenges are largely linked. Therefore, executive coaching is effective in creating results in the company.

I am very grateful for what I received, and it helped me to clarify the opportunities I have and how I really feel about them. It has helped me pursue some things with more focus and put others at a lower priority.

The future is already here, it is just unequally distributed”

William Gibson, author

As a leader in today’s world where everything is moving so fast and the world is changing rapidly, you have begun looking into the future. It’s not all rocket science. Future leadership is largely about people management; to listen, to have self-awareness and to motivate. When computers and algorithms will take over some of our management tasks, it is precisely the unique human qualities such as empathy and creativity that distinguish the people who can create value from those who can not.

My best scenario vision for the future is that companies create long-term value, that all leaders have a clear mind – and you wake up with energy every morning.”

Inspiration for leaders

We are  currently at a place in human development, where we are not yet in sync with the technology around us. Increased awareness of how to use your own and others’ energy can create noticeable results and a positive change.

Therefore, leaders of the future are leaders who know how to economise with the mental capacity of themselves and their employees. They provide a good framework for themselves and their employees to optimise their natural energy levels.
