Leadership in the Zone
Great leaders inspire people to fulfill their potential and achieve amazing outcomes both personally and collectively.
Culture, employee engagement and profits are the natural by-products of inspired people in an organization performing at their very best.
The burden of leadership can be quite overwhelming. On the one hand you just want to get on with the strategic stuff and get things done. On the other hand all these people come in with their personal, emotional issues and agendas, making it difficult to move forward. So much time is wasted in trying to solve disharmony in the team, department or company.
We have been told that if you can slot people into their boxes, eg. Myers Brigs or DISC etc, then we can use specific strategies to communicate with them and get their cooperation. Unfortunately, people are not easily compartmentalized and do not conform to their labels.
Once you have labeled someone, eg as a Pedantic Perfectionist, you now try to lead them but their pedantic perfectionism becomes a constant questioning and criticism of what you are trying to achieve. This makes it impossible to inspire them to tomorrow, let alone to the vision of greatness!
Once you have labeled someone, you believe they are the problem. This makes you a victim of them and their behavior.
Fortunately YOU are never a victim of anyone or anything in the world.
As explained in the core philosophy section of “What We Know,” the world you live in is a mirror projection of your belief system. Therefore, it is obvious that the most powerful way to transform your business, your people and your world to greatness is by clearing your own belief system of all labels and limitations.
When your belief system is clear of all the limiting beliefs that you experience – as your staff, your suppliers, your customers, your stakeholders, your business and your family, your friends, your acquaintances, strangers and your home – your world will instantly transform and you will step into the Zone.
In the example of the “pedantic perfectionist”, they will either instantly transform into an effective, productive staff member or they will resign.
The Zone Program helped me to take off my perception lenses when dealing with challenging staff issues, which enabled me to effortlessly remain objective and resolve these issues in a manner mutually beneficial to all parties. Zone training has also helped me to gain an amazing sense of self-belief to the point where I now feel that I can achieve anything I set my mind to. Being in the Zone allows you to know what to say and do that is most effective in any situation. It is a great tool for leadership. Todd Miller, CEO Synovate SA/NT (3rd largest Market Research Company globally)
The most effective way to inspire greatness in others is by realizing your full potential and becoming the greatness you wish to see in your people.
It’s about transcending your own limitations, overcoming your own resistances and fulfilling your potential as a human being.
By gaining absolute trust in yourself and your capacity to transform your world for the better, you automatically inspire others to do the same.
Your BEING is the most powerful key for extraordinary leadership.
