5 Tips That Lead To Success

SOTGC-Blog-Post-Template-5tipstosuccess 2A month ago my first blog post “5 tips that lead to success”, was published at Stilettos On The Glass Ceiling (SOTGC). It sprung out of the inspired mood while in the midst of my work with my new book “I’m a Cebra – who are you? How to succeed in the digitized work life”

The 5 tips lead to success in work life, or actually in life overall. In this transition and transformation from industrial era into a digitized era you need to change your mindset but remember to keep your stripes. It’s a time of fast changes that create confusion and it’s easily done to get lost and forget who you are, your values and where you’re heading in life. To lead a life that makes you enjoy the ride of life.

The tips I gave was

  • Be rested and get enough of, and have a good quality of sleep. Just need to keep in mind how a tired child behaves like the whole world is against it.
  • Dare to and take the time to be alone, without e.g. social media, tv, and phone. Disconnect to others to connect to yourself at times.
  • Get moving. Do something physical on your own, without the company of others.
  • Listen, listen and listen to the feeling in your body and your thoughts.
  • Trust yourself and what you feel and think. Then act out of it!

Leadership and empowerment

pin-308802_1280Leadership, creativity and health is intertwined and are independent interdependent. The core essence of and base is empowerment that in this context is used with the meaning of “The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights”. Empowerment can also mean “Authority or power given to someone to do something”.

Empowered leaders empower people around them they create more leaders and not followers. And that is what defines authentic leadership that’s transparent and honest. To achieve this great communication skills are needed with the crucial talents to listen, listen and listen. And to understand what’s said and to ask the right questions based on what’s communicated from the other person in different ways. To see and engage in and with the person you meet.

In order to work with leadership I needed a practical definition of leadership as a sustainable base for my work. The definition is based on literature and experiences with a focus on sustainable leadership. Once again it puts the spotlight on the importance of, and it’s based on empowerment of people.

foot-print-305462_1280“You experience a good balance between your body, emotions, thoughts and soul from your pre-conditions. You’re balancing yourself when you in the spur of the moment listen to your needs, not demands, and then, in your way fill them your way, with your methods that suites you the best. In other words you lead yourself on your path, following your inner GPS. You’re present in the state of creative flow and express who you are.”

An empowered leadership that brings out the inner force and power of one self and the people leaders works with, and it is achieved by enhancement of conditions promoting creativity, innovation and health. This will empower and have people use their talents for the best, which in return makes businesses and society successful and sustainable.

So to sum it up: Leaders create leaders more leaders, not followers. Lead words on how to achieve this are authenticity (being who you are), transparency (creates trust, understanding and engagement) and good communication skills.

Look forward to seeing you again and until then I hope to meet you in one of my social media channels.
