Great Leaders Are Thoughtful and Deliberate, Not Impulsive and Reactive

Great insights, understanding how our brains function - and we can go further to understand how our unconscious mind drives our reactions - drivers coming from internal pictures we carry that create our behaviours and responses. Good leaders are people who reflect and learn about themselves, taking this awareness into management of people / their teams, taking time to consider what makes others tick, why they may respond the way they do, and how to get the best out of each person. "...All leaders have two selves. There’s the self we prefer to present to the world – the one that is run by our pre-frontal cortex and is measured, rational, and capable of making deliberate choices. And then there’s the self, run by the amygdala, that is reactive and impulsive and often causes us to fail to meet our commitments or overreact in frustration...." #leadershipqualities #emotionalresilience #emotionalintelligence
