Leadership is a Dance – Day 15 / 40

 

Let’s talk about dance first..

In a partner dance, it becomes evident very quickly that both leading and following is a subtle art and science. In a partner dance one leads and another follows. Both following and leading happens with full body and there’s great amount of connection and tuning in to each other. If the leader does not lead with their full body the leading can become abrupt and followers don’t necessarily want to or are able to follow. Leaders need to make it easy, smooth and enjoyable for the followers to follow.

How can we apply this to personal development?

In personal development, most of the time when you want to reach a new level in your life, you need to lead your mind and you need your mind to follow. From experience you know that it is helpful to lead your mind in a way that is clear, completely harmonized with full body and brain and in a way that is easy for your mind and unconscious/subconscious mind to follow. Abruptly whipping yourself to do things may work initially, but like in dance, you won’t get another round of dance.. she’ll say no…

So how does this apply to business building…

What we often use personal development for is our goals, and many of us have business goals.. So apply the same principle to your business activities. In addition, you can apply the same principle to leading people that work for you, and even your customers… You can gently but clearly lead them to make a purchase, take an upsell etc. And you can lead in a way that the customers actually love to follow you…

World is hungry for leaders. Right kind of leaders… Why don’t you be one of them?

To conclude…

Here’s a video of a dance performance we did a few years ago. That was before I reconstructed my body by the way. I also wanted to do more acrobatics and dips and throws, but they wouldn’t fit into the overall plan… 😀
