This module makes the case for the centrality of purpose to every individual, team, and organization. We examine how humans are wired to behave “defensively” or “heroically” and explore the implications of functioning from each of these two operating systems. Additionally, we guide leaders through the process of discovering and articulating their own unique Purpose—an invaluable framework to inform and guide a Purpose-centric life.
People respect and follow leaders they perceive as authentic. This requires aligning one’s decisions and actions with one’s values and value-drivers. Using the accompanying tutorials leaders can then map out their spiritual DNA into a Leadership Fingerprint, enabling them to be more deliberate in the choices and decisions they make.
Mastery is the ability to remain “heroic” even when triggered, a characteristic vital to effective leadership. How we avoid the instinctive pull into our defensive mode is an essential part of the learning. This module explains why we are naturally wired to be triggered into our defensive mode and delineates practical tools to overcome this instinctive pull.
Great leadership is powered not only by competence, but by character. Nevertheless, there are some powerful tools that can greatly enhance effective leadership. This module demonstrates tools such as: powerful questions, responsive listening, and how to conduct difficult conversations.
