Auto-Pilot Alert! - What's your impact?
How aware are you of your personal impact? Are you having the impact you want to? How would you know? Take a look at this short video and ask the questions  of yourself to bring your Auto-Pilot around impact to the surface!
Creating 'freedom' in your Leadership practice
‘I remember the mixture of pure elation and power when I got into a car for the first time on my own after I passed my test. What my new leadership practice gives me is quite similar in some ways. Freedom to be confident, not reckless -  skilled and responsible and actually imperfect because I am still practising. Now where is that “too difficult box”? Can’t seem to find it anywhere.’

This is quote from a recently 'developed' Wide Awake leader! We are struck by how working with your brain in a Wide Awake way we create a sense of 'freedom' in the brain.  A confidence to be able to deal with situaitons, people, tasks in a different way that sheds the need to be 'right' and develops the capability to be 'skilled' or 'responsible' in our responses. 

At the core this develops a deep resilience from which to operate in a 'free-er' way.  This is because we are creating new links in our brains that mean we don't have to travel the same well-worn paths of our Auto-Pilot if they are not helping us to achieve our outcomes. We are understanding where to 'loose our grip' on the how and focus on the 'What is important here?' 'What are we out to achieve?' 'How will know when we have got it?'

Today - why not start that journey to 'freedom'? Think of a meeting you are soon to attend. What is really important here? What do you want the outcome of the meeting to be?  How will you need to 'be' in order to achieve this outcome?    What flexibility might you need to employ compared to how you might 'normally' think or act?    

What's it like experiencing the meeting having reflected on these quetions? What have you learned?

Refreshing your Leadership Practice - Our Introduction to Wide Awake Leadership

We held our first Introduction to Wide Awake Leadership this last week with some great feedback from the delegates!

'I really like the the Wide Awake concept of Auto-Pilot - useful and thought provoking about how I am thinking and acting now as a leader and how I want to be leading.'

They raised their awareness of their own leadership Auto-Pilot through creating their current 'leadership map' and decided on actions to create new and re-invigorate old leadership practices. They left refreshed and ready to experiment!

A couple of questions for you from the day: 

  •       What leadership practice am I running that is out-of-date?
  •       What have I stopped using in my leadership practice that might be really useful right now?

To explore more come to our next event on 26th November- you can download the brochure here:
