MINDFULNESS

The fundamental capacity  of mindfulness teaches you to be okay with what’s in front of you; not to judge, and not to want it to be something else but to be absolutely okay with whatever is happening right now and all that it’s meant to be.

SOULFUL SPORTS LEADERSHIP

Sports Leadership has became more process orientated, more distributed and  the hierarchy has became more flattened.

NATURAL CONNECTION

A connection with nature is perceived usually as a one-sided thing, we go into nature and we expect something to come back to us.

 

We get tranquility, we get peace, we get fresh air. We get rebalanced. It’s not a one-sided communication where I'm getting something from nature, but I actually should give something back.

 HEART LED LEADERSHIP

The thing that struck me about it was how, how in business do you better know your people so that by better knowing your people, you can't help but love and care for them. By doing that, you will want to serve them and to serve the organisation.

Meditation

MEDITATION

As far as meditation for leadership goes, it's the difference between stepping into your day panicked, worried, freaked out and projecting that into your organisation. As opposed to  being centered, calm, present and thoughtful about all the decisions that you make through the day.

SENSING & NOTICING

There are too many things that leaders are trying to be at the same time. Taking the time to notice and sense can allow you to lead from the right place.

SOULFUL NARRATIVES

Your narrative is a way of presenting your understanding events that reflect our particular views or values. So, if one view of leadership is that it's a way of distilling a sense of the world and a way of, of inhabiting values; narrative is a great way of showing it and exploring that.

Authentic Liberation

AUTHENTIC LIBERATION

Being authentically liberated (especially in the workplace) and making decisions that not only benefit the job but also benefit you, really comes from a place of understanding who you are and where you come from.

People First

PEOPLE FIRST

I think it's quite brave to speak up and say, “ this is unacceptable, the way you're treating me. I'm a human being. I'm keen to do my job. I want to work hard and you're making me feel miserable.” There’s this perception of ‘do your time,’ which makes the experience of work become negative. However, if people are unmotivated, they're just not going to be able to get the output that you want. They're not going to want to hit any sort of goal. Culture is so important.

Culture & Wellbeing 

CULTURE AND WELLBEING

There’s a lot of attention on global sustainability and the interconnection between the planet and human wellbeing. My hope is that organizations will see that if we take care of our people and we take care of the planet and we pay attention to this as an organisation, that they'll be in it for the long game and it's necessary for the long game.

Selfless Leadership

SELFLESS LEADERSHIP 

The key philosophy of selfless leadership is that great leadership comes from a position of care, and that was the key lesson I learned from watching people around the world.

The Empathetic Soul

THE EMPATHETIC SOUL

Empathetic leadership has allowed me to give people time, be less impatient, awareness is incredible. Awareness of yourself, your limitations, your qualities. To have a really good team, you need to know the individual each, each member, and you need to know their story.

Leading with Genuine Care

LEADING WITH GENUINE CARE

For me, it's care from the heart. Sometimes we care for people, family members, friends could be our team members or the people within our communities, or the world at large. Sometimes that means making challenging and painful decisions that may affect others' lives.

Laughter and Leadership

LAUGHTER AND LEADERSHIP

What I've ended up learning at Smirk experience:  If you can get people on, on side, then once everyone's pulling in the same direction, then it's easy. This applies to both comedy and leadership; everything is easier when you have the audience laughing and on side.

Tribe Culture

TRIBE CULTURE

We worked on trying to identify what our values should be in our organization to take us forward with one objective, how do they protect our people and set them free? Number four of these values is we value succeeding as a tribe while excelling as individuals.

Speak Up
Culture

SPEAK UP CULTURE

If you really do want to create a speak up culture, you have to obsess about the conditions you're creating to encourage people to get to the point where they're willing to take that risk, stick their neck out, and speak up, share an idea, a concern, even a disagreement.
