How you are within directly affects how well you lead.
Is meditation just a ‘flavour of the month’ well-being tool or is it very capable of giving business leaders the edge?
Some of the most influential business leaders in the world, such as Steve Jobs, Marc Benioff, Jeff Weiner, Andrew Cherng, Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington and Padmasree Warrior agree.
The Adelaide meditation studio, *The ZEN Room, believes that meditation can transform your company.
You might lead a small team, or maybe a few hundred or even thousands of people. If you are a leader in any form within your organisation then you have either, or will need to, transform yourself into a larger possibility. Growing your business means growing yourself and taking others on the journey. And they will look to you as their leader.
Who you are, what your thoughts are, what emotions you have and how you are right at this moment will manifest in every action that you perform in the world. Once in a position of leadership, who you are, what you think, your emotions, your actions, what you manifest will now have a major impact on those who either have to follow you, choose to follow you or those strongly influenced by you.
What makes people follow a leader is that the leader can see a little further or see things the followers are unable to see; that’s why they follow. A leader does not need to be a superhuman or know everything BUT leaders do need to see certain things that followers are missing and they need to have an ability to gel people together for a particular purpose and outcome.
Fundamentally as a leader you are always either transforming yourself or those around you or situations around you all of which will directly affect people’s lives. So spending a little time transforming yourself from within through awareness, presence and a stillness practice is important to allow you to guide others in achieving their aspirations.
