as for professionals...manager or executive is what you are,
not who you are
the benefits of empowerment coaching
You must have heard or read that up to 50% of employees who leave their jobs name interpersonal conflicts -- with their managers -- as their primary reason. Forbes tells us that 90% of managers lack the necessary skills to be leaders.
There is in fact a differentiation to be made between management and leadership.
One of my business philosophies is: you must be personally what you aspire to be professionally.
With my Who Are You principle in mind, I built the Developing By Learning And Training program: revolutionary workshops for executives and managers based on key areas of personal development and professional development to help them become leaders.
Empowering yourself takes you from intention to action. When you live and lead in an empowered state of mind and act with intention, you create your self, your well-being and your wealth. You learn to balance your needs in relation to your responsibilities in rewarding ways. You experience holistic personal development that reaches all your dimensions. You power your life, your wellness and your potential. Because personal development is the foundation for professional development, you even power your business.
Whether you are selling a product/service or managing a team, you are making a first impression, building a reputation and constructing an image for yourself.
You don't need to sell yourself, you need to brand yourself.
Personal branding is at the core of your work: it is the foundation for all you know you can accomplish.
To brand you, you need to
- know YOU;
- bring your whole YOU to everything you do.
When you discover and accept yourself, you humanize yourself. You humble yourself to certain principles of positive human behaviors. You also learn practices that help you connect to others through understanding, respect and collaboration.
Your humanity, in life and at work, teaches you:
- active listening
- appreciation for others' perspectives
- constructive affirmations
- acceptance of others' feedback
- a sense of responsibility
- effective communication with all types of audiences and personalities
- building blocks for trust, collaboration and community
- respectful conflict management and resolution
- resilience to change
As a whole and empowered human, you possess the aptitudes to trust yourself and believe in yourself. By exercising your leadership talent, you become in a position to drive performance management and organizational performance.
When leadership becomes you, you perform with influence, creativity and impact. You move from manager and problem-solver to mentor and coach. You ensure greater effectiveness in your professional community.
