Training inspiring leadership
Broaden build: the positive spiral
You may have experienced it: negative emotions push you down in a negative spiral and a limited tunnel vision. But it works in the opposite direction as well. Positive psychology shows that positive emotions lift you up and you achieve the opposite of tunnel vision: you broaden your view, think more out of the box, and are more motivated to build.
Inspiring leadership is about creating the positive environment and reinforcing the uplifting spiral.
The reward for the inspiring leader lies in experiencing how people grow, collaborate better, build better products and deliver better service. And are just plain happier, less at risk for burn-out, more fun to be around.And in what you learn about yourself...
Empathy and connection
The basis of inspiring leadership is building connection:
We listen to people:
How can we really be there for them
How can we learn to let people say what they really want to say
To create the psychologically safe environment that helps people
We can use the connection we make to
understand what is important for people so that we can help them achieve their goals
we help others to show more empathy and create a psychologically safe and positive environment
we improve collaboration in the team and help them become high-performing
Grow others - TeamGrowing
We help teams grow. We help them
Through forming - storming - norming to performing
Through creating a learning environment
By finding the right Team Topology and competences
By helping create focus and flow
Inspiring leaders do not give all the answers. They help create an environment and a mindset so that the teams can find the answers themselves and grow through learning.
Create and share a vision
Leaders need to inspire. With a clear vision.
How do I create such a vision? How do I take people along with that vision? How do I know where others want to go? How do we share the vision and pool our skills to achieve the goal.?
In our positive approach, we look forward and imagine the ideal we want to achieve. As a product or service. And as a way of working, with respect for what each person can contribute.
As an inspiring leader, I also know what dreams my team members have. And where I can, I support them to achieve those dreams
