The Content

Inside the Program

Let’s take a closer look at the 9 Disciplines of Leadership and Self Mastery…

1. Conscious Use of Self

The Path to Self-Mastery: In situations where effectiveness is essential or change is desired, leaders must replace habitual, automatic behavior with actions deliberately chosen to create the impacts they desire through conscious management of their emotions, thoughts, and believes.

2. Teams as Human Systems

The Secret Sauce for Effective Teams: Understanding human systems (which behave independently from the values and wishes of its individual members) allows leaders to manage the behaviors of their teams. Otherwise, systemic goals, values and beliefs, i.e., culture and group norms, tend to overwhelm the goals, values, and beliefs of its individual member as it seduces them to conform to the system’s goals, values, and beliefs.

3. Building Support Systems

No Significant Success Is Ever Achieved Alone: The ability to build personal and organizational support from diverse sources is crucial to effective leadership and goal accomplishment. No one achieves anything of significance without significant support regardless of the western belief that one must pull oneself up by one’s own bootstraps.

4. Contracting for Agreement

Building better Agreement for Better Results: Building the explicit mutually understood and mutually satisfying agreements that support their efficient and effective execution.

5. Sound & Current Data

Discerning Facts from Assumptions & Beliefs: Assuring we are working with data as up-to-date and factual as possible, rather than assumptions, interpretations, and speculations, avoids the misunderstandings and upsets that bedevil many leaders. On automatic, we assume our assumptions and interpretations are accurate.

6. Making Feedback Work

The Key to Staying on Target: Operating from the understanding that feedback is only information (neither good nor bad) allows leaders to determine if what they and their teams are doing is moving them closer or further from their goals. In addition, effective leaders when know how to receive feedback without upset and offer feedback that people will hear as helpful.

7. Shifting Power Dynamics

The Root of All Team Dysfunction: Creating teams that operate through collaboration, leaders can shift teams away fromthe automatic, win-lose dynamics that create hostile conflict and the excessive conformity which stifle synergy and creativity.

8. Learning from Differences

The Source of Synergy and Creativity: Differences are the only source of learning that exists. Using differences to accrue knowledge and skill leaders can stimulate the synergy and creativity that are the hallmark of successful teams and organizations.

9. Empowerment

Turn Your People on to Their Inherent Excellence: Leaders, who support others to identify and resolve their own issues, reach their own ambitions, and discover their inherent excellence, make their lives both more effective and fun.

The Impact and Sustainability of the Intensive

Jill Charlton
“I use your teachings still to this day, often on a weekly or even daily basis. Your teachings have had the biggest impact on my leadership practices throughout my entire career across 3 different companies. I use your teachings around sound and current data, dialogic feedback, your version of a ‘big share’ introduction all the time. And of course, my favorite: “How’s that working for you?” Thank you for all that you taught me.”

The Leadership & Self-Mastery Program was an ideal way for me to reflect more deeply on my role as a facilitator and coach.  The sessions focused my thinking on particular themes, enabling me to gain a much richer perspective on my work and on my vision for my practice.  The personal reflection and group dialogue gave me insights that helped shape my practice in ways that have benefited my clients and me.”
