What is Personal Leadership? Lead Yourself in Leaderless Times

“Because you can't create your dreams without leading yourself."

As we navigate change and transformation in the world, leadership is crucial. Yet, we are in the midst of a leaderless society. It’s easy to see and hear the anti-establishment messages everywhere. Trust is low across all sectors: politics, policing, education, healthcare. Even religion, as we know it from thousands of years, is dying out. The revolution is happening.

But without leaders, positive role models, and models of demonstration, structures or codes to live by, in how to navigate the uncertainty, who do we turn to?

During leaderless times, Personal Leadership is more important than ever!

In essence, I define Personal Leadership as intentionally guiding your thoughts and emotions to achieve your desired results.

But really, it's much more than that, especially in what is required to be developed as well as what it enables you to access.

Why is Personal Leadership Important?

The practice of personal leadership increases responsibility, resilience, and the ability to navigate challenges to create purpose-driven impact. This is what the world is deeply craving to be demonstrated and, as a result, becomes highly attractive for others to model.

My focus for facilitating Personal Leadership is directed towards mindset and approach on an emotional level to create lasting transformative results by providing the tools that cultivate competencies to lead oneself.

Across the four interior empires of personal performance—Mindset, Heartset, Healthset, and Soulset —there are four key dimensions to build competencies within for effective Personal Leadership.

Four Dimensions of Personal Leadership

Self Awareness (Mindset)

  • Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Values & Motivations

  • Perceptions & Beliefs

  • Triggers & Reactions

Self-Regulation (Heartset)

  • Managing Self Effectively

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Stress Management

  • Impulse Control

  • Behavioural Adjustments

Intentions & Achievements (Mind & Heartset)

  • Clarity & Direction

  • Goals & Outcomes

  • Planning & Action

Time & Productivity (Logistical Frameworks)

  • Decision Making

  • Prioritisation

  • Responsibility

  • Work / Life Balance

Personal Leadership is an exciting area to continue to develop because it's a lifetime pursuit. You never reach the end, but your life experience increases exponentially with each new development.
