As we’ve discussed, there are many different ways to look at Leadership 2.0 and qualify what it is.
One of our favourite ways to measure true Leadership 2.0 is by how it feels – how does it feel when in a leadership position yourself or being led by somebody else?
We love feeling as a growth metric here in The Mental Gym, because our feelings don’t lie – they tell the true story as to what is going on behind the gates in your mindset.
Words can be scripted, choices can be manipulated, actions and behaviours can be controlled.
Feelings, on the other hand, are raw, vulnerable, and honest.
That is because they tell the story as to how you’re influencing yourself psychologically – what beliefs you hold, your mindset, your perspectives on life.
How do true leaders show up emotionally?
Empowered, confident, inspired, courageous,and the really great ones, show up powerfully vulnerable.
And the incredible part of experiencing a true leader show up in this way is how their emotions spread and actually infect you – the ripple effect is powerfully felt by those they lead.
We will be discussing these traits in the next couple of days. For now, during your quiet time, take some time to reflect on the true story of how you are feeling as a leader or being led by someone else.
