When Misery Takes Over Your Company
Miserable leaders infect their ecosystem, spreading misery throughout the organization's culture
As a leader, I found that no matter how many trainings & self-awareness skills I experienced, I found myself slipping back into old habits
No matter how much progress, I would revert back and face uncomfortable feelings: shame, guilt, doubt & fear
I was not addressing my underlying feelings & old beliefs -- by trying to change & improve myself, I was still perpetuating these old energies in my leadership
That which we resist, persists
When that's all I knew, I wasn't even aware what I'd become used to was permeating misery or pain
I was in this "hole of misery" so long that it felt like home
Only through a guided process, did I learn that self love, forgiveness & acceptance are the keys to full integration & transformation -- by accepting all of my Self, I stepped fully into my Leadership Mastery
This is seminal for our business & civic leaders because their impact on shaping unhealthy, toxic & conflicted cultures through their impressions on the Ecosystem in which they lead
You have seen the stats, studies and warning signs: employee engagement is plummeting, health & wellness expenses are skyrocketing, workforces are stressed, and many are under-performing
Unaware of their role or misery, Miserable Leaders are to blame
If you are a Leader feeling unhappy, stressed & unfulfilled no matter what efforts you are applying, then I invite you to ask your self these fundamental questions:
Do I love all of myself?
Am I ashamed of myself somehow?
Am I trying to change that part of who I am?
How can I show more love & compassion towards that part I am trying to change?
These questions can guide in seeing what underlying aspects of your Self you may be rejecting, feeling shame around or judging -- this may well be a wrench clogging-up the Core of your "leadership machinery"
Full Leadership & True Transformation stem from embracing all our traits & emotions to build a foundation of self love, acceptance & happiness from which to grow & lead upon
Any wellness, leadership development or team dynamics training will fall flat without a solid foundation of these traits within each Leader or if there exist any uncomfortable feelings in the Team space due to Miserable Leadership
Sustainable organizational growth is built on a foundation of a leadership self-awareness, love & acceptance within each leader at the helm
