The single biggest challenge facing us today and beyond is the unprecedented lack of personal leadership within our private and public sector organizations. And personal leadership is required at all levels; from executives, directors, managers, team members, workers and professionals.
Most people when hearing the words "leader or leadership" assume that the reference is to the people at the top in the power positions with authority and not the individual people who make up the organization.
Manager versus Leader
Ask any room full of managers how many of them are leaders and you will find that most managers do not see themselves as leaders.
Many professionals struggle with this and fail to see the opportunity that developing their leadership skills offers in terms of improving results, communication, resolving problems and inspiring the best from people.
Advanced personal leadership skills are required to cope with today’s fast-paced, competitive and globally connected environment where there is a free flow of capital, ideas, information, technology, goods, services, and people worldwide.
What is Personal Leadership?
Personal leadership is about the individual taking responsibility for a problem, and the solution. Like any skill this can be learned by anyone, however it requires a new perspective on why this is important before addressing how to do it.
The Culture of "Blame"
The challenge is that most people are so afraid of making mistakes, that they won’t take the risk of being responsible and accountable at the same time (most people inaccurately see responsibility as another way of saying "blame" or who is "at fault" when things go wrong.)
Combine this with the fear of losing face and you have people who won’t speak up even though they know the solution!
To be successful in the future requires organizations that are comprised of responsible, productive and risk-taking individuals who demonstrate the qualities of true personal leadership and who aren’t afraid to speak up. Most people do not understand what this requires, neither do they have the skills, attitude or support to make the transition. These skills, education and support are now available.
What can you do as a leader to cut through the clutter and target your most pervasive challenges with laser-like precision - understanding exactly the right things to do to solve them and to motivate yourself into higher levels of enthusiasm, responsibility and performance?
The answer is - the Optima Zones of Human Behavior and Peak Business Performance! Developed after extensive research and development including working with over 40,000 people from diverse backgrounds of race, religion, professions and cultures. The result is a system that includes a comprehensive chart of seven zones across 16 dynamics of leadership. For the first time a holistic system is available to dramatically improve your leadership performance, effectiveness and productivity by determining present conditions versus the ideal scene and then identifying what one thing can be done to bridge the gap in the shortest time possible.
The system explains why personal leadership is critical, what the potential benefits are and how to overcome the limitations and issues that get in the way. You will also learn about the relationship between leader and follower and why some people resist change and what to do about it. Optimum performance is identified with any blocks easily removed.
There are many success stories from people who have benefited from this knowledge... below is a sample of The Optima Zones:
Most of the currently available leadership education only addresses part of the picture and doesn’t solve the real long-term problem in a systematic way. This lack of effective solutions lead us to develop an innovative and highly usable set of tools, and a curriculum of educational and support programs that range from a ½-Day Leadership Seminar to a 12-Month Leaders’ Academy that transforms individual and team performance.
