Be a Head-Heart-Hands “Whole” Leader

Leading with your head means more focused-on business objectives and getting things done. Whereas leading with heart means more focused on people engagement, motivation, and relationships. More over leading with hands means, to ensure innovative and agile-execution capabilities. Every approach has some benefits and pitfalls.  Today’s business environment is constantly changing and there are multiple highly complex challenges. So neither approach is sufficient in itself. Rather, all of these are equally needed to make real headway in increasing employee engagement and leadership.

“When you react, you let others control you. When you respond, you are in control.”
– Bohdi Sander

Leadership is the process of leading others to achieve a goal. To get a better outcome, leaders need to understand themselves and their employees through emotional intelligence.
Feelings, moods and emotions play an important role in the leadership process. The intelligent use of those emotions can be beneficial for effective leadership. Leaders with high emotional control are perceived as more efficient by the followers.
Emotions in leadership are not something to be feared. Emotions are what make us human, so we shouldn’t try to turn them off or suppress them. However, as leaders, people are always looking at us, seeing how we respond to challenges & to show restraint and make good decisions even when under stress.

 

As we know from chaos to inertia, indecisiveness to arguments we need leadership in every aspect of life. Just as good leadership can result in a productive & successful team, same as a good couple leadership can result in a happy, successful & romantic partnership.

We have a culture where one partner (male) dominates in the marriage, assumes that his personal goals are on priority in the marriage. He wants to fold their wife’s energy and abilities into the pursuit of those goals, instead of making it a priority to pursue her heart and draw out her own unique goals & destiny. This pattern of living mostly destroys and disturbed the relationship because one person is only following the other one with no clear sense of goals of her own.

“Leadership is about mobilizing people toward valued goals, building trust and inspiring them to move with you to a better future. It starts with identifying a compelling vision of a shared future, rooted in core values. Leaders do that in organizations of all kinds, including families”.

Your family is one of the most important organizations in the world that pursues some collective goals, controls its own performance and has a boundary separating it from environment. Your family needs leadership so just take a leadership role in your family and become more effective and successful as a parent leader.
