LeaderShift – Walk on the Wild Side

What is familiar and known is comfortable
 

But throughout your life, there are times when you must leave what you know… and venture into the unknown. While you can never be fully prepared for the uncertainties that lie ahead, you do have an expert guide to accompany you on your journey.  That guide is your intuition.

Instead of staying with what’s familiar, step out and ‘follow your instincts’. And those instincts will lead you on a journey that is all your own. What you will discover along the way is who you really are and what you really love.

Unrefined and unmapped, the wilderness of your intuition will lead you to new discoveries that you never would have experienced if you stayed where you were comfortable.

What journey will you take, , that will lead you to new discoveries and opportunities?  Imagine what’s out there for you if you venture away from what’s familiar and comfortable and follow your intuition into the vast unknown.

What’s Better Today? As you Think, so you Feel, so you Act

If you have ever wondered what someone else is thinking about you. If you ever worry about the impression someone is having about you. STOP!

Guess what.

As you are thinking about what they are thinking about you, they’re thinking what you are thinking about them.

Instead. Tell them what you’re thinking about them. Affirm them. Encourage them. They’ll feel good about you.

Velcro elbows: the new standard in presenting – Guest Post by David Bloch

Velcro elbows: the new standard in presenting
Imagine that you stick a strip of Velcro on the inside of your upper arm, from your armpit to your elbow, with the matching strip on the side of your chest. You then close your arms against your chest.
An increasing number of speakers adopt this dysfunctional gesture. Oh, and before I forget, remember to clamp your hands together just above your belly button. You are now ready to present with restricted breathing, limited, poor voice projection, unsettling gestures, low impact, increased nervousness and appearing unsecure and insincere. Just what you wanted!
Restricted Breathing

What is so remarkable about this posture is the effect it has on the breathing.
Just as pumping the hands and arms from the shoulders is essential if you want to run fast and benefit from a deeper breathing cycle, applying “Velcro elbows” is a great way to put the brakes on the deep, relaxed breathing that fuels the voice.
Communications researchers confirmed long ago how vital the voice is – specifically the variation in volume, intonation and speed – to support the credibility of what is said.
Yet it continues to be a source of wonderment just how many speakers limit themselves, and negatively influence the credibility of what they say, by presenting with Velcro elbows!
Unsettling gestures

”Velcro elbows” restrict your gestures. The photos (left) are clips of the complete range of gestures that a well-known international sales and presentation skills trainer used during a 10-minute presentation. There are so few available gestures that this presenter has no choice but to repeat the basic ones.
I challenge you to give someone directions on the street to the nearest supermarket using “velcro elbows”. Communications researchers confirmed long ago the importance of functional […]

Leadership Qualities

Leadership Qualities – what makes a good leader? Are they born or made? How do I develop these qualities?
Developing the leadership qualities necessary for success is possible!

Some people will debate for hours on whether a leader is born or made? Is leadership and management the same thing? Is one particular personality type more or less likely to succeed as a leader?

For every question you have about leadership there are a hundred and more answers.

We all have our own opinion, and you are entitled to it. This is mine…

We can also debate all day, all year in fact on whether these should be called qualities, traits, characteristics, personality and so on. All of these terms are relevant, yet the debate about which is most critical is probably the cause of procrastination and deadlock.

Does it help if we spend some considerable time arguing about whether this should be a trait or a qaulity? For the purists perhaps, the academics certainly, but for you? Don;t you just want to know how to be a better leader and do better leadership?

For those who simply want to get on with developing their leadership – scroll down the page and find the links to the different qualities. For those who want to bear with the academic justification of all this qualities bit… read on.
What is a Quality?
I turn to the trusty and ever-ready dictionary.com

qual·i·ty; noun, plural -ties,

1. an essential or distinctive characteristic, property, or attribute: the chemical qualities of alcohol.

2. character or nature, as belonging to or distinguishing a thing: the quality of a sound.

3. character with respect to fineness, or grade of excellence: food of poor quality; silks of fine quality.

4. high grade; superiority; excellence: wood grain of quality.

5. a personality or character trait: kindness is one of her many […]

LeaderShift – Don’t Stay On Shore

Don’t Stay On Shore
You know, , that some people are natural risk-takers. Other people are content to stay where they are because it’s comfortable. And they are willing to stay there, even if it means they are settling for a life of unfulfilled dreams.

But to experience life to its fullest, we must stretch beyond our comfort zones. And we must leave the shores of the familiar to set sail for new horizons.

Sure, it’s scary. There may be turbulent squalls, intimidating waves, and maybe even pirates. But with each challenge you meet, you will be closer to discovering new lands, new people, and new opportunities.

Without a willingness to take the risk–in spite of our fear and uncertainty—to seek unfamiliar shores, we resign ourselves to lives of mediocrity in a familiar port of call.

It’s been said that growth begins at the end of your comfort zone.  So, too, does adventure, self-knowledge, and a life well-lived. But we must be willing to take risks to get there. The first risk is to pull away from the dock and set sail for the lives we’ve always wanted.
