Conscious Leadership

Why Conscious Leadership Matters

The Conscious Leadership Institute defines Conscious Leadership as the art and science of bringing our whole selves to work and using our whole selves at work. It is about being in charge of our own minds, managing our emotions, understanding how we are wired and using that knowledge to achieve optimal performance.

Conscious leadership consists of four basic tenets: mindfulness (being aware), presence (being mindful), self-regulation (self-awareness) and compassion (compassion). These tenets are all interconnected with one another, meaning that they cannot be separated from one another.

What are the Benefits of Conscious Leadership?

The benefits of conscious leadership are boundless. In a world that is constantly evolving, it is important to be able to adapt and change. A conscious leader is someone who can do this well. This section will explore the benefits of being a conscious leader and how to be one.

A conscious leader has a deep understanding of themselves, their team and the world around them. They are able to see things from multiple perspectives which allows them to make better decisions for themselves and others. They have an ability to empathise with people which helps build trust in their teams and organisations. Conscious leaders are also more resilient because they have greater self-awareness which means they know what their strengths and weaknesses are so they can work on those areas when needed.

Sarah Jones Coaching specialises in conscious leadership coaching, which focuses on maintaining a present, conscious approach to your everyday decision making and recognising the power that your thoughts, emotions and experiences have over the way that you respond to external events.

Now let’s look at why conscious leadership matters:

  1. Great leadership matters more than ever

The past two years have been hard on everyone, and employees are looking for encouragement, reassurance, and guidance. Their working practices will no doubt have changed, their feelings about work may have adjusted and they may have re-evaluated their lives more broadly during the pandemic. Many will be experiencing feelings of uncertainty and perhaps still fear.

As a leader, you can play a key role in helping your people to feel positive, empowered, and ready to get the most from their jobs and careers. With regular, engaging, and two-way communication, your own special brand of authentic leadership and a commitment towards your workforce, you can make sure everyone is working together, with the right kind of encouragement and support and a clear sense of direction.

  1. Today’s leaders need to understand themselves

Most of us go through life without seeking to understand how our own personalities and experiences unconsciously shape our lives – including the way that we automatically respond to events and perceive things. When we become more conscious, we take off our filters and seek to become more objective, more questioning, and more open to what is happening around us.

We seek to understand different perspectives, to really get to the heart of issues and to remove our own judgements and biases as far as possible. By really listening and seeking to understand – without letting our egos get in the way – we can become more authentic leaders.

  1. Leaders can learn to separate themselves

Our thoughts define our feelings and emotions. The more that we can train our minds, perhaps using techniques such as meditation and conscious questioning, the more we realise the power that we have as leaders. We are no longer prey to external events and no longer feel powerless in the way that we respond to difficulties.

We learn techniques to be more resilient, more robust, and yet, more empathetic. And as we develop that authentic position of consciousness, we can share it with others and encourage them to do the same. The shadow of the leader is a truly powerful concept within any organisation.

  1. Conscious leaders are more effective

Conscious leadership naturally leads to a more mature, evolved, and effective leadership style. By seeking to take ego and assumptions out of your leadership style, you will naturally become a more genuine and informed leader; one better able to read the room and understand your stakeholders.
