So, why another article on leadership? Today, there is a critical yearning and profound need for quality leadership. A lot has been written and said on the subject but many organisations and companies still lack leaders that can execute vision, initiation and sustain change, and move and inspire people to perform at their best. As such, there is no better time than the present to take a deeper look beyond traditional forms of leadership towards developing holistic leadership models.
A holistic leader takes into consideration both the bigger picture and all of the parts that the big picture is comprised of, has vision as well as an idea of what it will take for that vision to be achieved; he/she takes a human behavior and the causes of such behavior – psychological, social, cultural, financial etc. into account, and is able to understand how this behavior impacts employees and colleagues and the company and its goals.
Business applied meditation has a five minute meditation for any working professional interested in developing holistic leadership skills. Not everyone will become a holistic leader, but absolutely anyone can benefit from adopting some of the characteristics of this leadership approach into their daily life. The program provides a great foundation and meditation method that can be personalised and enriched by the user, as such it is aimed at helping the individual reach their potential and goals.
Holistic leadership is a concept that can be developed, changed and transformed depending on experience, environment, education and many other factors. This style of leadership goes beyond solely focusing on desired action – it is a wholesome approach that takes into account the human behind the action.
