Quiet Leadership: Intuition

Quiet Leadership: Intuition

One of the primary reasons top leaders are able to make tough decisions is because they have learned to trust their intuitive instincts. Bill Gates says, "Often you have to rely on intuition."

Some people seem to have a stronger sense of intuitive skills than others (Ni personality type), I do believe that any leader can learn to be more intuitive. It is simply a matter of learning to trust your heart when it speaks to you.

Our September guest speaker Susan Lee Woodward is a Medical Intuitive, Laughter Yoga Facilitator, Reiki Practitioner/Teacher and Meditation Facilitator. Voted one of the top 25 Intuitives in Vancouver by Crowd Wellness.

She believes that Intuition is a skill that everyone has but not everyone uses to its fullest potential. Trusting and using your intuition benefits your relationships with intimate partners, friends, business partners, and co-workers. Most importantly it improves the relationship you have with yourself!

Join us on September 20th to learn about intuition and how to access it.

Quiet Leadership: Sonic Therapy

Introverts tend to spend a lot of time in their heads, and that sometimes can back fire if we are not conscious of a healthy balance between mind and body. Staying in the head can lead to analysis paralysis. 

Sonic Therapy™ helps you to slow the inner dialogue, create headspace and reconnect to your body by dropping in and tapping into the deepest desire of your heart. It allows you to become more present and in touch with your feelings.

Focus in the Age of Distraction

Focus in the Age of Distraction

The importance of focus has never been greater than it is today. Or seemingly harder to achieve. The technology we enjoy allows us unprecedented productivity through easy access to information, ideas, and individuals. It also has the undesired effect of overwhelming us with too much information and fracturing our focus. 

We live in the age of distraction - where the steady and abundant input from multiple devices, programs, apps and social media connections turns into a fog of distraction. 

Taking breaks to recharge and refocus the mind is important for everyone, but for introverts, in particular, occasional pauses are crucial to maintaining productivity and positive well-being at work. According to Cain, an introvert is likely to feel overwhelmed and ultimately burned out if he or she is dealing with constant environmental stimulants and digital distractions.

Through a highly engaging and experiential workshop, learn why we are so easily distracted, what’s going on inside our brain, what’s at stake if we don’t manage this and a variety of simple techniques to better manage our focus at work and in life.

Quiet Leadership: Dubai

Quiet Leadership: Dubai

Whether we like it or not, we live in an extroverted world. It has long been believed that the natural leaders of our society were extroverted types, those that were outspoken, bold and assertive.

These traits have changed our definition of leadership and altered our assumptions about what good performance looks like. 

Research shows 50% of all leaders are introverts, yet our working environments favor the extrovert. And while many studies have shown introverts are natural born leaders, many business cultures often make it impossible to thrive. 

You don't have to be loud to be a great leader, and you can be impactful by being soft-spoken, quiet and gentle. 


✦ KEY TAKEAWAYS ✦

➪ Understanding of Quiet Leadership

➪ Quiet leaders traits and strengths

➪ Expose some myths

➪ How to close the communication gap between introverts and extroverts
