Leading with love and kindness is strategic and strong.
Whether you are leading yourself, your family or at work consider…
Leading with kindness is about being a compassionate, strong, and understanding leader. It means putting the needs of others before your own and treating them with respect and empathy. This type of leadership can create a positive and productive work environment, where people feel valued and motivated. Leading with love and kindness is strength and clarity. Leading this way influences the environment and culture we create. The relationship you have with yourself is crucial in connecting with others. When you are comfortable with who you are and have a positive self-image, it makes it easier for you to connect with others on a deeper level. This is important for building trust and strong relationships with your team members. So, when leading with love and kindness lead yourself first. Work on changing the patterns of a negative internal voice, work on self-awareness and self-acceptance. Be kind to you with good daily habits of self-care. Include daily exercise, daily meditation and fun and laughter in your day. It’s all about mind, body and energy. Fill your cup up first, plan it and do it. Consider that when you are a more deliberate, conscious leader with yourself first hen you will create a leader that connects, enables, empowers, and inspires. Suddenly conversation won’t be critical or difficult they will be thoughtful focused conversations where you listen first and foremost. I’m wondering if you can understand that saying a conversation is difficult or critical you have just made the conversation about yourself and that is selfish and unkind. Focusing on the person you are conversing with and asking questions and actively listening will be a game changer as conversations will be valid, meaningful, productive, and useful. Think of the energy will be saved. Sometimes change is difficult, adjusting the automatic response you have established over your lifetime is going to take more than motivation and will.
