Is your leadership style effective and effortless?

February 12, 2018
Leadership can truly be effortless and enjoyable if we approach the process with alignment and flow. The leadership most of us have experienced is one of resistance, where force, consequences, threats and negativity are used to inspire action. This may promote change however it is fear motivated.
Instead love and flow motivated leadership comes from encouragement, kindness, compassion, validation and listening to the ideas and input from others. Once we achieve this level of flow the team works effectively towards the same goal and it can indeed be effortless.
To achieve this however the leader herself must be in a place of effective flow. To achieve this a natural state of balance of mind, emotions and drive needs to be maintained. Ask yourself where is your balance, how does your drive compare to your emotional state and are these two elements ever balanced and coexisting.
The effective leader is intuitive, balanced in her energy and at the same time self serving and selflessly serving her team.
Self serving implies that her drive and her mind are engaged to pursue what is necessary. Selfless serving implies that her mind and emotions are balanced and aligned so that she can receive input and then execute based on collaboration.
Too often we see women leaders who are resistant, defensive and trying to hold and maintain her ground through a place of fear and aggression. This is not effective nor is it necessary.
To be the most effective leader we must balance the self and the service. What are you executing for yourself so that you can be balanced in service. Life work balance, giving and receiving, healthy boundaries and a clear mind all contribute to this place of balance for the female leader.
In what way are you feeling inspired to take greater action to achieve this balance so that you can be effortless and flowing in your service of others and organisations.
