Leadership starts with the self.
Am I showing up in the world in a way that I am comfortable with?
Most of us are called to situational leadership in certain circumstances – perhaps in our family units, or communities, where our behaviour jointly sets standards for others.
Am I the role model I would like to have?
Some of us become professional leaders, where others have certain unnegotiated and unspoken expectations of us, as well as explicit outcome expectations.
Am I providing the best environment for my team to thrive?
But change has become a constant, so all leadership becomes change leadership.
Am I able to lead through ambiguity?
We all have to deal with change driven by external happenings and depending on the severity or unexpectedness of the change are able to cope with that change without deviating much from our routines or the plans we made yesterday.
What does my team need to fulfil its purpose?
Sometimes we can no longer stick to our plans. We have two choices. Either we fight the change in order to push through our plans anyway, or we make adjustments. Those adjustments are often made on the fly, in order to get us a close as possible to our original planned outcomes so we can use our original success measures. The alternative approach is to use the change to be even more effective and have an even greater impact. Then you become a change leader.
What is the greater impact my team can have, aligned with it’s purpose?
And if everything is going along swimmingly, inside of your comfort zone but you are not making full use of your potential:
What is it that I need to change now?
Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re rightHenry Ford
You set goals. You break them down into milestones. You get them done.
Even elite athletes engage with coaches to further extend and tune their skills, and fulfill more of their potential.
How much of your potential are you fulfilling?
…people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.Maya Angelou
Leadership is something we all do at some point in our lives – often unconsciously, if not incompetently…
Once you have decided that you have a cause, your success will be determined on the clarity with which you communicate, the effectiveness of your relationships and your ability to help your team thrive. All of this is influenced by your emotional intelligence – EQ – which you can train.
And what is a man without energy? Nothing – nothing at all.Mark Twain
Wellness for executives is about managing your energy rather than time, for time passes regardless of how you fill it, and energy remains as the one variable in your life.
Energy is your capacity to do work.
Optimising your energy capacity and efficiency whilst eliminating systemic energy loss (friction, conflict and stagnation) is key in planning for sustainability and peak performance.
For high performing individuals and teams, to achieve peak performance and sustainable performance, wellness is a pre-requisite, not an afterthought.
“Sustainable change happens
at the intersection of
achievement, leadership and wellness.”

How often have you had the feeling that you weren’t being listened to?
Or unable to “get through” to a team member?
Maybe, even though you thought you were being listened to, you just couldn’t get your message across?
Certain team member just don’t get each other?
Or, they just don’t understand?
Communication is our number one tool to transfer energy to other human beings.
Each of us has a natural preference for a particular communication style and perception of the world. So, tuning our communication to fit the preference of our conversation partner helps minimise “lossy” communication, leading to a more energising exchange.
PCM is the communication model that is more than a communication model. It promotes understanding, inclusion and engagement.
