Embracing the Balance of Emotion and Logic: A New Way of Leadership
The world is rapidly changing, and so is the way we lead. For years, we have been led to believe that the “dominant” trait is what makes great leaders – being tough, aggressive, and logical. But as the modern world becomes more complex, the need for a different kind of leadership is emerging. Leadership that embraces emotions such as empathy, vulnerability, and intuition, and values them equally with logical reasoning. Any extremity is not ideal, and “balance” is more important than ever – a new way of leadership that balances the yin and yang, the masculine and feminine energies within us. In this blog post, we will explore why we need to break through the societal norm of what makes a great leader and look at the art of balancing delicate emotions and logic.
Leadership is about People
At its core, leadership is about people, and people are emotional beings. We all have emotions, and they are not to be feared but embraced. It means embracing our emotions as an essential part of our leadership style. It is not about being soft, but about being strong enough to accept and handle emotions effectively. Emotions allow us to connect with people, to understand their perspectives, and to inspire them to follow our vision. As leaders, we need to encourage those around us to be more emotionally expressive, not suppressive. It is through this balance that we can create meaningful connections and achieve success.
Soft skills have been a term used to describe non-technical skills, such as communication, empathy, and teamwork, as opposed to “hard skills” like project management or accounting. This separation is an outdated way of categorizing skills; they are all equally important. This means that we need to embrace the range of skills available to us to create a harmonious ecosystem of skills. It’s not a competition of hard skills versus soft skills; it’s about identifying and nurturing a balance of skills that ultimately help elevate the human mind and workplace to new heights.
Embrace the Unconscious Mind
The unconscious mind controls 95% of our existence; it is where our habits, beliefs, and emotions reside. Yet, most leaders do not harness this power, as they remain blind to the importance of the unconscious. Embracing this balance means understanding that the real power of leadership comes from balancing and integrating these deeper aspects of ourselves. By being more aware of our unconscious, we can unleash a wealth of creative and intuitive ideas that we never knew existed. We can make better decisions, build stronger relationships and connect with people in more profound ways.
The current era is a time of great change, and it requires a new way of leadership. It means embracing emotions as an essential part of our leadership style, challenging traditional labels of soft and hard skills, and accepting and nurturing the unconscious mind. The world needs more leaders that are intuitive, empathic, and collaborative, and the world needs you to be one of those leaders. If you’re ready to lead in a new way, join the movement to find your “balance”.
Balance Emotion & Logic
The art of balancing delicate emotions and logic is not just important but essential for our success in the modern world. This is not just about gender but about values and qualities that anyone can cultivate. To create a leadership style that inspires, motivates, and elevates, we need to break free from outdated societal norms. It is time to rise in this new age that values connection, collaboration, empathy, and intuition. This allows us to embrace our full potential and create a better future for ourselves and the world around us.
