Welcome to Creating Conscious Leaders
I’ve always been fascinated by Human Behaviour and have learnt from my own experiences what brings the best out of me and how different leaders in my career have contributed to who I am today. I’ve worked with some truly exceptional leaders. I’ve also worked with some leaders who, at the time were not very self-aware (or didn’t care), how their behaviour and decisions impacted those around them and some of my greatest lessons came from working with them. I have led many successful sporting and people teams. I haven’t always nailed it, but I have learnt from every decision I have made. Now, I have the opportunity to give back and share with you what I have learnt over my 20 years of Leadership.
So, what is Conscious Leadership?
Conscious Leadership is about being truly self-aware of how your behaviours and decisions affect those you lead – employees, customers, suppliers. It’s about using your head and heart when you lead. Too many people assume their position makes them a leader. It doesn’t. Your position may give you authority or control but it does not make you a leader.
Why is it important?
These days employees are looking for more than just a job. They’re looking for a place they feel they belong. A place they feel safe to be able to contribute, where they feel they are valued, recognised and what they do makes a difference. We need to start re-educating current leaders on how they view leadership and start setting future managers and leaders up for success.
We need to give our teams CLARITY of what success look like, CONFIDENCE in the tools and resources around them and then the COURAGE to go make it happen.
