I still remember my first day walking into NLP school and meeting my now 15-year mentor, the most masterful story teller I’ve ever met, the lovey Dr. Linda Ferguson of NLP Canada.
I remember it like yesterday, because she was the first teacher I’ve ever had ask me to put away my notepad and stop taking notes.
I remember how disoriented I felt when she suggested “that I trust the process of sitting back, allowing myself to fully engage in the moment and enjoy listening to what she had to say” as a means of fully integrating the learnings.
My classic High-Achiever strategy of sitting in the front row, nice and close enough to hear every word, so that I could capture “the best notes”, was being challenged in that moment – and thankfully for me, I trusted her guidance and tossed this broken strategy out the window.
What happened next changed the game for me, in my self-leadership as a student and has evolved ever since, into how I lead others today in a way that aims to have max impact on their growth.
On this week’s episode of The Leadership Launchpad Project, my Leadership 2.0 mentor Dr. Linda Ferguson of NLP Canada (attach link to her website here), takes us all on the same journey she took me on that day, through her masterful art and science-backed story telling strategy experience.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience first-hand how powerful a leadership mindset strategy story telling can be when practiced in an NLP (neurolinguistic programming) way.
Embedded in her stories are strategies around the importance of relationship-centric leadership, the power of state in communication strategy and the importance of emotional intelligence when max impact as a leader is your goal.
We even unpack how to lean into the challenges around adapting to leading remotely.
I can hardly wait for you to experience the strategy and the power of trusting the art and science of story telling from the master herself, so sit back, relax and resist the urge to take notes…I promise you that what’s awaiting you on the other side of this show will be well worth it.
Your highest potential is our passion, so let’s unleash it together!
