Topic: Leadership with Soul: The power of your emotions in and outside the workplace
Develop a more advanced leadership style by understanding how it looks to lead with your soul. A leader with soul uses not only IQ (Intellectual Intelligence), but EQ (Emotional Intelligence) and SQ (Spiritual Intelligence). Leadership with soul sets a new frontier of personal growth and organizational leadership that is already envisioned by high end organizations and leadership experts of the 21st century. SQ is not connected to any religion/faith, neither negating any of them, it is related to self-realization or development of the human potential. A leader with soul knows that sustainable success requires that we lead ourselves first to then become a catalyst for transformation in the organization, but also in our families, our communities and the world.
A conscious leader is aware of the power of his/her mind and emotions. Your thoughts and emotions have the power to elevate you to your highest potential or bring you down to the bitterest experience. The good news is that you can manage them! You can train your brain and your heart to be strong and soft at the same time and you can then face your work life with more joy, openness and easiness. Actually, situations that early would fire a reaction, then you will be able to see them without judging and you will remain calm without suppressing. This is real resilience. The good news is that what you will learn here will be a jewel that will help you outside the workplace as well. You will be able to practice it in the comfort of your office or home.
